Going to the countryside market during Tet holiday was a great joy, with a lot of folks coming and going around, buying and selling. People were welcoming and friendly, greeting with happy conversation. Relatives sometimes gave each other a bunch of bananas and fish without taking money. For acquaintances, if they did not have money, they were still willing to buy on credit, pay later. Thus there was a saying "selling to relatives". Meeting relatives, they were willing to sell out, even without taking any money.
