Vietnamese festival bridge on Eastern mysticism and historical landmarks. The Vietnamese celebrate the great thought leader Confucius’s birthday. Confucian temples come alive with activity and celebration. The most out there is the Wandering Souls Day. Here, some believe the souls of the dead wander the homes of their offspring. Food is laid out around houses for the visiting spirits. Historical events also make their way into festival celebration. Communist leaders and achievements are commemorated with lavish displays of appreciation and observance.
