The Year of the Ox, a tumultuous year, is closing. Perhaps apart from good wishes for themselves and their families, the people of Hanoi might share a simple wish with each other.

It is a wish for a “new normal” and safety after the pandemic. Health and peace are always the top wishes of everyone.

Besides, many people also wish that in the new year they will do well and have a stable job. Students, after a long time staying at home, share a common desire to go to school.

Or even more simply, they just wish to see loved ones again after a long time apart because of the pandemic./.
