About the Tet Celebration
Tet Nguyen Dan (Tet), is considered the biggest and most popular festival of the year in Vietnam. It is 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. It is the occasion for Vietnamese to express their respect and remembrance for their ancestors as well as welcoming the New Year with their beloved family members. Historically, Tet was important as it provided one of few long breaks during the agricultural year, which was held between the harvesting of the crops and the sowing of the next ones.  Most families gather to prepare a big feast, decorate Tet trees, and eat Tet food to welcome in the new year.
