2359 words - 10 pages

Người Việt Nam có truyền thống hằng năm mỗi khi đến ngày Tết âm lịch mọi người muốn trở về sum họp cùng nhau dưới mái ấm gia đình, thăm lại ngôi mộ hay nhà thờ tổ tiên, thăm lại kỷ niệm thời niên thiếu có thể gắn liền với giòng sông, bờ ao, vườn bưởi, vườn rau sau nhà, v.v. Có lẽ vì vậy, câu nói “ về quê ăn Tết” đã trở thành một thành ngữ chỉ cuộc hành hương về nơi cội nguồn. Đối với gia đình tôi, sum họp cùng nhau để chuẩn bị cho ngày tết âm lịch là những kỷ niệm đặc biệt với tất cả thành viên trong gia ...view middle of the document...

Song song đó, các chị em phụ nữ thì chuẩn bị các món ăn nào là bánh tét, thịt nấu với nước dừa, khổ qua dồn thịt, tôm khô, dưa kiệu, dưa hành, dưa cải, chả lụa... Ngoài ra, các món mứt cũng được chuẩn bị đầy đủ như: mứt dừa, mứt gừng, mứt khoai, mứt mãng cầu, tắc, me, thơm...
Vào lúc trưa, sau khi nhà cửa đã được lau dọn sạch sẽ chúng tôi bắt đầu tráng trí xắp xếp lên bàn thờ và phòng khách. Trên bàn thờ cúng ông bà tổ tiên ngày Tết không thể thiếu trái cây. Chúng tôi lựa chọn kỹ các loại trái cây đơm trên bàn thờ, nó phải tươi nguyên, còn cả cuống lá xanh để có thể trưng đến ra giêng mà không hư. Mỗi người có cách trưng trái cây trên bàn thờ khác nhau, gia đình tôi chỉ trưng bày các loại quả đơn giản với ý nghĩa "chơi chữ": cầu (mãng cầu), vừa (dừa), đủ (đu đủ), xài (xoài). Với mong muốn cầu chúc mọi người trong gia đình dòng họ được sung túc, đầy đủ, trọn vẹn trong suốt năm. Bên cạnh đó, phòng khách cũng được xắp xếp sao cho có đủ chỗ ngồi cho các thành viên, trên bàn chúng tôi đặt khai bánh mứt và bộ tách uống trà, phía trước trong gian phòng khách chúng tôi đặt các chậu hoa: hoa mai, hoa cúc, vạn thọ... với ý nghĩa đem đến nhiều sự mai mắn cho mọi người trong năm mới và người lớn tuổi thì sống lâu, trẻ nhỏ thì vui tươi, học giỏi...
Khi mọi việc hoàn tất cũng là lúc chiều tà, mọi người cùng nhau bày biện mâm cơm để rước ông bà nhằm bầy tỏ sự tôn kính đối với tổ tiên, đây là lúc mời ông bà về tham gia vào bữa tiệc đoàn tụ với tất cả các thành viên trong gia đình.Theo truyền thống, tất cả các con trai sẽ trở về nhà bố mẹ và người ta cho là không may mắn nếu bạn ăn ở ngoài đường vào đêm tất niên. Khi ăn, mọi người đều phải ăn mặc chỉnh tề, phụ nữ phải mang đồ trang sức quý, quần áo đẹp, mọi người là đều phải tươi cười, vì điều này nghĩa là sự may mắn sẽ tiếp diễn, càng tươi cười và càng đeo nhiều đồ trang sức quý bao nhiêu thì may mắn tới càng nhiều vào thời điểm giao thời giữa năm cũ và năm mới (giao thừa). Vào lúc này, tất cả những người con phải có những lời chúc tốt đẹp cho bố mẹ mình. Cửa chính và tất cả các cửa sổ, phải được mở. Cả nhà phải tràn ngập ánh sáng, với ý nghĩa là dương khí tràn ngập căn nhà vào lúc giao thừa. Và cứ thế, chúng tôi ăn uống trò chuyện cùng nhau, chia sẽ về công việc của mình trong một năm...
