Tet Vietnam

Cimigo’s research into the habits of mothers in the lead-up to and during Tet reveals some interesting changes in the way the lunar new year holiday period is being viewed in Vietnam. We’ve looked at several key elements of the Tet holiday to see how mums and wives go about their preparation for Tet. From food shopping to buying gifts to lucky money, our market research into this key consumer demographic suggests attitudes towards Tet are changing.

 “I feel completely relaxed when I go back to my own parents’ home. Mum cooks me delicious meals and gives me rice cakes to put on my own alter.” 26-year old mother, Ho Chi Minh City

Of course, mothers in Vietnam see Tet as a hugely important time for family – both nuclear and extended – but this comes with the pressures of expectation and ensuring everything is perfect. Mums are telling us they welcome the opportunity to go back to their home towns to spend time with their parents and be involved in the festivities. However, in Hanoi especially, many mothers feel uncomfortable having to prioritise their husband’s family over their own. There seems to be a feeling that daughters-in-law are being judged, and even criticised, by their hosts.

“This Tet I stayed with my mother-in-law for New Year’s Eve. She told me that as I am married I ought to obey my husband’s family. She wouldn’t tolerate me going to my own mother’s house for such an important event like Tet”. 36-year old mother, Hanoi
