Origin of Quoc Khanh
During World War II, Vietnam was occupied by Japan which allowed French to have some influence of power in that country. The war ended in August 1945, and Vietnam experienced the vacuum of power so that a communist national independence coalition in Vietnam (Viet Minh) commenced “August Revolution” to take over government offices all over Vietnam.

On 2 September 1945, the leader of Viet Minh – Ho Chi Minh – declared Vietnam’s independence in Ba Dinh Square, Hanoi. Since then, the day is commemorated as Vietnam’s National Day as well as public holiday every year.

Quoc Khanh 2013 Celebration
Since Quoc Khanh is a public holiday, most people in Vietnam are given a day off. Thus, they can participate in the celebration of their country’s independence day every year. On that day, series of entertainments including festivals, parades, streets events, and fireworks are organized.

Leaders of Vietnam, government officials, and commoners also use the day to remember their national heroes and pay tribute to them by raising the national flag of Vietnam in many buildings and houses. Vietnam National Day is not only celebrated throughout Vietnam but also in all Vietnam’s embassies around the world.

Happy Vietnam National Day 2013 !
