class, I often help my mother to collect water from the river and feed the chickens. At the weekend, the villagers often
gather at the community hall where there is a TV. The adults watch TV, but more often they talk about their farm work
and exchange news. The children run around, playing games and shouting merrily. Laughter is heard everywhere. My
father sometimes takes me to the market town nearby where he sells our home products like vegetables, fruits, eggs… He
then buys me an ice cream and lets me take a ride on the electric train in the town square. I love those trips. On starry
nights, we children lie on the grass, looking at the sky and daring each other to find the Milky Way. We dream of far away

Le Mat Snake Festival

Over the years, Le Mat Village in Long Bien District, Hanoi has been
famous nationwide for not only snake catching and breeding, but also its
unique festival. The festival is annually held on March 20-24 of the lunar
calendar to worship the village’s tutelary god of the Hoang Family.
Legend told that one day while the daughter of King Ly Thai Tong (10721127) was boating with her maids on the Duong River, a big snake, which
was considered a water monster, overturned the boat and caught the princess.
The crew could do nothing to protect the princess. But a young man in the
Hoang Family from Le Mat Village dove into the water, fought against the
monster and, in the end, succeeded in killing it and saving the princess. King
Ly Thai Tong was deeply impressed by the young man’s feat and gave him a
reward in gold and court titles. But the hero graciously rejected the reward
and, instead, requested the King to allow him and a number of poor people
to reclaim land in the areas west of the capital in Thang Long. When the man
passed away, the locals honored him as the village’s tutelary god and every
year organize a festival to commemorate him.
Le Mat Village Festival consists of many unique rituals and folk
activities, such as the water offering ceremony, the snake-killing dance , one
of the ten ancient dances in the imperial capital of Thang Long and the ritual
of catching carp in the village well. With many ancient cultural features, Le
Mat Village Festival is one of the unique festivals in our country, attracting a
large number of tourists.
