People pray for good fortune and the festival is mainly celebrated in Mai Chau district and Hoa Binh province. During this Vietnamese festival people gather together in a common shrine and pray for the good fortune of themselves and their loved ones.

The offering of the festival also varies each year and special preparations are offered every year. Each family prepares worshiping meal and then set table in the shrine and begins worshiping following the rituals associated with the festival. Suppose this year chicken is offered, and then in the next pig will be offered, therefore the varieties of meal for offering keep on changing every year.

Process of worshiping meal preparation starts from the afternoon itself.  Each of the families kills two chickens in the afternoon and one is kept to worship Kitchen God whereas the other is kept for the Earth genie, which is set in field.
