Son: Mommy says if I smile a lot during Tet, I’ll be loved by other people and get more Lixi (lucky money). Ah, Tomorrow is Tet, so I will smile much more to get more Lixi.
Father: I've been so busy all year long, I have not been able to spend time with my wife and daughter. The New Year is coming, so I will spend more time with them to make them smile more often.
Daughter: Next Year I will be studying away from home. My Mom will miss my smiles. Next year, I’ll definitely visit home very often so she can still see my smiles.
Closing frame: Great smiles bring great fortune for the New Year.
