The Year of the Rooster starts this Saturday, January 28 with the Tết Nguyên Đán (Tet) or Vietnamese New Year. Tet is the most important celebration in the Vietnamese culture. It takes place on the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar.
During Tet families and friends get together to cherish the good memory of the past year, share love and respect for each other, and to wish each other a great year ahead. Their celebrations include traditional Vietnamese dishes, dragon dances and lucky money in red envelopes.
