  • Tet - Lunar New Year 24th January 2020

    Tet is the most important and popular holiday and festival in Vietnam. It is the Vietnamese New Year to welcome spring, based on the Lunar calendar.

    Tet takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar, which will be on the 25th January 2020 and is celebrate for at least 3 days . Many Vietnamese prepare for Tet by cooking special holiday foods and cleaning their house (spring cleaning). There are a lot of customs practiced during Tet such as visiting families and friends houses, ancestral worship, wishing New Year’s greetings, giving lucky money to children and elderly people.

    Tet is also an occasion for pilgrims and family reunions. During Tet, Vietnamese visit their relatives and temples, forgetting the troubles of the past year and hoping for a better upcoming year. They consider Tet to be the first day of spring and the festival is often called Hội xuân (spring festival).

    Like many Asian countries, Vietnamese believe that the color of red and yellow are a symbol of luck, you will see these colors everywhere during Lunar New Year. People consider what they do on the dawn of Tet will determine their fate for the whole new year, thus people show their best behavior and attitude in hope for good luck.

    Before New Year’s Eve
    Long before Tet the preparation begins. It is a busy time for families and shop owners. Shopping, cleaning, decoration everyone is getting ready for this special celebration. People try to finish the outstanding business, payments and children receive new cloth an upcoming new year.

    A week before Tet, the streets and markets are full of people. As the shops will be closed during Tet, everyone is busy buying food, clothes, and decorations for their house. Beautiful flower markets are specially set up for this occasion as locals wish to make their house looks as nice es ever. 

    In memory of their ancestors the families have altars with offerings, such as a tray of five different fruits on called “Ngũ Quả” (five fruits type). During Tet the altar is thoroughly cleaned and new offerings are placed there. 

    The New Year
    The first day of Tet is reserved for the closed family. Children wear their new clothes, give their elders the traditional Tet greetings before receiving the lucky money from them in exchange. Games will be played and traditional food eating. 

    The traditional greeting is “Chúc Mừng Năm Mới” 

    Since the Vietnamese believe that the very first visitor on the first day of the New Year will determine their fortune for the entire year, a person of kindness, morality and success will be the lucky sign for the host family and be invited first into the house. This special activity is called xông đất or xông nhà, which is one of the most important rituals during Tet. According to Vietnamese tradition, if good things come to the family on the first day of the lunar New Year, the entire following year will also be blessed.

    During the following days, people visit relatives and friends. Traditionally the second day of Tet is usually reserved for friends, while the third day is for teachers, who command respect in Vietnam. Local Buddhist temples are popular spots as people like to give donations and to get their fortunes told during Tet.


    • Argue, swear and say bad things
      If people usually wish greetings during Tet holidays, it is forbidden to say bad things like death or swear in this occasion, it will bring bad luck to ones family.
