Many families have come to Lac Hong Vien Cemetery in Hoa Binh City in the northern province of Hoa Binh for the ceremony earlier than usual to avoid the crowds in the coming days.
It took Pham Thi Nghiem's family in Ha Ba Trung District, Hanoi, more than an hour to the cemetery. Over the past six months, they have not been able to come to the ceremony due to being quarantined and social distancing measures.
People usually prepare offerings such as incense, fruits, sticky rice and Chung cakes for their ancestor worshipping on this occasion.
Nguyen Thanh Liem's family in Thanh Xuan District came to Lac Hong Vien Cemetery quite early to invite the ancestors to return home for Tet.
