In Quang Ngai province’s Son Ha district, the H’re ethnic people are using bamboo and leaves to make good-luck offerings to their Gods in the new year in the way their ancestors did.

Dinh Van Bon, a resident in Son Ha district, Quang Ngai province said: "I saw my grandparents and my parents do it every New Year festival, and follow them. Then I teach young people how to make offerings and decorate the house, combining the traditional style of H’re people and the present practice”.

Among the H’re traditional offerings at Tet, the Gagu (a variant of Tét cake (cylindrical sticky rice cake) is indispensible. H’re women selected the highest quality rice to make the cakes to offer to the Mountain God, the Tree God and their ancestors, asking for their blessing for a new healthy and prosperous year.

Dinh Thi Luu​, a resident in Son Ha district, Quang Ngai province told reporters: "We offer Tét cake to pray for prosperity and good health".
