31st January 2014 - Vietnamese Lunar New Year – Tet Nguyen Dan

31st January 2014 -  Vietnamese  Lunar  New Year  – Tet  Nguyen Dan

 

Happy New Year

Tet Nguyen Dan is the most important celebration of Vietnamese culture.

It is by far the country’s most important holiday, and is a bit like combining Christmas, New Year’s, and your birthday into one celebration.

Like Chinese New Year, Tet takes place on the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar. This usually translates to late January or early February on the Gregorian calendar. In 2014 Tet will be celebrated on January 31.

 

Tet  Nguyen Dan

The years are represented by 12 zodiac animals: rat, buffalo, tiger, cat, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. These animals rotate through 12-year periods. Each animal has different strengths and weaknesses that they are believed to pass on to any person born in their year.

For example, 2012 was the year of the dragon (the last one of which was in 2000), the most noble and powerful of all the animals. According to tradition babies, especially boys, born during a year of the dragon are more likely to become wealthy and powerful adults. As a result, dragon years produce baby booms as couples plan to give birth during that year.
