    the most meaningful celebration

    Hi,
    Please tell me if it is correct not to repeat "celebration"?
    "There are several national celebrations in Vietnam, but perhaps the most meaningful is Tet holiday."
    Thanks.

    Re: the most meaningful celebration

    You may repeat "celebration" but it is perhaps more natural to say it the way you have done in your post. Maybe "the" Tet holiday, or simply (as I belive it is called?) Tet. -without the article: the most meaningful is Tet."

    Re: the most meaningful celebration

    You may, "the most meaningful one is Tet" - but you don't need to. It's equally fine to write, "... the most meaningful is Tet."
