(QNO) - The First Full Moon Festival in Hoi An was recognised as a national intangible cultural heritage on February 2, 2023.
Legend has it that the First Full Moon is the day of God blessing; so, it is significant to offer sacrifices to pray for peace and good fortune.
The First Full Moon is also a festival recognised in the hope that everything is going well during the new year.
On the occasion of the First Full Moon Festival, communal houses, temples and assembly halls in Hoi An are decorated with lights and flowers luxuriously.
The atmosphere is also as bustling and joyful as the Tet Festival. It is considered one of the tourism products in the UNESCO heritage city.
