Tet Trung Thu, the Mid Autumn Festival, is dedicated to children and involves moonlit processions with brightly lit lanterns. Families spend the day together and eat mooncakes by the light of the moon. Lion dancers perform for luck and good fortune and are rewarded with lucky money. Parents and grandparents recount the legends of the moon lady as well as the carp which became a dragon through sheer hard work. This is used to illustrate that Vietnamese children can become anything they choose if they apply themselves and make an effort.
