Chuc Mung Nam Moi! Happy New Year!
Monday (Jan. 23) kicked off the first day of the Vietnamese New Year. If you haven’t realized it yet, it’s the Year of the Dragon!
Some people refer to it as the Chinese New Year, but many other Asian cultures observe this holiday too. In Vietnamese culture, it’s called Tet. Celebrations last for 3 days, and it is THE most important holiday of the year. While growing up, holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas were just an average day in my parents’ house.
