Preparing for Tết (Vietnamese Lunar New Year) in Vietnam


The traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) is the biggest and oldest festival in Vietnam. Celebrated on the first day of the first month in Lunar Calendar. Tet's celebration is the longest holiday which may last up to seven days.

Tet is an occasion when members of a family, no matter where they are and what they do to earn a living, get together and pray in front of the ancestral altar. Their return to home in celebration of Tet is regarded as a journey back to their birthplace. During these days, people are welcome a new coming year with good health, lucks and success.People consider what they do on the dawn of Tet will determine their fate for the whole year, hence people always smile and behave as nice as they can in the hope for a better year. Besides, gifts are exchanged between family members and friends and relatives, while children receive lucky money kept in red envelope.

In the days leading up to the Vietnamese Lunar New Year 2014, the boisterous atmosphere of the Festival has filled every part of the country.
Here are some photos which depict the cheerful and exciting atmosphere leading up to Tết holiday.

Happy new year 2014! Wishing you a happy and magical New Year. We hope it brings you lots of joy and happiness. All the best.
