“Sharing the Same Heart” – Mid-Autumn Festival 2018
Every year, on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, children usually celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with traditional 5-pointed star shaped lanterns and eat traditional specialties. However, this festival is not held because of tough economic conditions in some provinces. To show a spirit of solidarity, the Youth Union of Ton Duc Thang College held the program “Sharing the Same Heart” donated from our students and sponsors to give gifts and performance as well as to carry lanterns with the children in poor communes in Chau Thanh district, Ben Tre province. During the program, children seemed to live in the legend with a man named Chu Cuoi and his wife Chi Hang Nga, happily receiving gifts and participating in the lantern parade together.
