They celebrate many different celebrations but the biggest one they celebrate is New Years which in Vietnamese is Tet Nguyen Dan. The Vietnamese say chuc mung nam moi instead of happy New Year!!! Tet can fall any time in January or February because the Vietnamese follow the lunar calender. It is based on the movements of the moon. Tet marks the beginning of the lunar calender year. Many Vietnamese believe that kitchen spirits protect their family. The week before Tet , families send these spirits on a journey to visit the Jade emperor heaven. They put out a tall bamboo pole decorated with small pieces of clay. In the breeze, the clay chimes and scares away evil spirits. On new Years Eve, people celebrate with noisy drums, gongs, and fireworks to welcome kitchen spirits back into there homes. Vietnamese celebrate Tet with feasts, parades, friends, and family.
