Vietnam Family Day celebrated nationwide

QĐND – Tuesday, June 29, 2010, 20:42 (GMT+7)

Cultural and art programmes were held nationwide on June 28 to promote the family-oriented tradition in celebrations of Vietnam Family Day.

The capital city of Hanoi was colourful and cheerful during a festival on Hanoi family culture, where sports competitions, photo exhibitions on family and flower-arranging contests attracted public crowds. In the spotlight was a conference honouring successful and happy families.

The nation’s largest economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City organised many activities on June 27 with the participation of thousands of families, one of which was to set up a Vietnam Guinness by piecing 20,000 coins together into a symbol of “Family-backbone of happiness”.

The whole proceeds of the mosaic symbol auction will be earmarked for the construction of homes for poor families.

The southeastern region has joined the nation by holding the first family culture festival in Bien Hoa city, Dong Nai province. As many as 54 exemplary families coming from all the five regional provinces shared experiences in taking care of their families and children.

June 28 is annually celebrated as Vietnam Family Day after the Prime Minister signed up a decision in May, 2001. The decision aims to uphold the important role played by the family and family values in developing human characters.
