Description

Têt, or Vietnamese New Year, is the most important celebration in Vietnamese culture. The word is a shortened form of Tết Nguyên Đán (Nôm: 節元旦), which is Sino-Vietnamese for "Feast of the First Morning of the First Day". Tết celebrates the arrival of spring based on the Vietnamese variation of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, which usually takes place from the first day of the first month of the Vietnamese calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. Many Vietnamese prepare Tết by cooking special holiday foods and cleaning the house. These food include Chung cake (bánh chưng), bánh dày, dried young bamboo soup (canh măng), giò and sticky rice. There are a lot of customs which are practiced during Tết, such as visiting his relatives and temples on the first day of the new year (xông nhà), ancestral worshipping, wishing New Year's greetings,giving lucky money to children and elderly people, and opening a shop. They consider Tết to be the first day of spring and the festival is often called Hội xuân (spring festival).
