    Background: In Hanoi on Tuesday North Vietnamese Secretary of the ruling Communist organisation labour Front, Mr. Le Duan, visited the flower market, where traditional peach blossoms and miniature Chinese oranges were on sale for the celebration of Tet, the Lunar New Year, which begins on Saturday.

    The occasion underlined the new feeling of relaxation in Hanoi following the signing of the Vietnam ceasefire agreement, which ended the heavy American bombing assault on the city. Until the signing, Hanoi had been partially evacuated and those remaining lived underground.

    Flowers an kumquats, the small oranges, are traditionally given as New Year presents at Tot.

    Earlier, a big rally was held in Hanoi to celebrate the ending of the Vietnam war. It was the first time that such a big rally had been held at night for many years. The North Vietnamese see the cease fire as a victory for their side, and the rally called to celebrate that victory. It was addressed by various civic leaders.
