Vietnam Travel Guide

Tet is also an occasion for pilgrims and family reunions. During Tết, Vietnamese visit their relatives and temples, forgetting about the troubles of the past year and hoping for a better upcoming year.

Vietnamese people usually return to families during Tet. All the office, factory, school, and construction are subjected to be off for some day and be flexible in arranging their work during the holiday

The most typical feature of Tet is the preparation in each family. Every family redecorate their house with new painting, buying new outfits, welcoming their relatives to come back home.  People mainly buy pictures, parallel sentences, flowers and trees. The main flower of North Vietnam is peach blossom; the South is yellow apricot blossom. Besides, they also use kumquat to decorate the living room.

The Tet atmosphere clearly begins from the 23th of the last lunar month. That is the time for the God of Kitchen to return to Heaven to report what happened in the whole year to the Jade Emperor. In the feudal period, the duration of Tet is often from the 23 December (one week before Lunar New Year’s Eve) until the 7th of January (one week after Lunar New Year’s Eve). Every work of the court is paused in this time. Nowadays, the holiday time is organized more properly and suitable for the modern life, which helps in terms of economics and politeness in order to be more corresponding to the industrial time.

Tet holiday is for people to have rest, enjoy their time, visit relatives, and join festivals, therefore, everybody needs to well dress. The first day of Tết is reserved for the nuclear family. Children receive a red envelope containing money from their elders. This tradition is called mừng tuổi (happy new age) in the north and lì xi in the south. Usually, children wear their new clothes and give their elders the traditional Tết greetings before receiving the money. There are also public performances for everyone to watch. The celebrations can last from a day up to the entire week, and the New Year is filled with people in the streets trying to make as much noise as possible using firecrackers, drums, bells, gongs, and anything they can think of to ward off evil spirits.
