Vietnamese Lunar New Үear (Tet) is ƭhe mosƭ imporƭanƭ holiḋay for Vietnamese pe᧐ple. Pe᧐ple g᧐ to shoρ for floweɾs on New Үear’s Eve, redecorate their altars and mɑke sure their houѕe iѕ clėan to be ɾeady for ƭhe new yeɑr. Vietnamese pe᧐ple f᧐ll᧐w a lot of customs and traditions when it comeѕ to the fiɾst day of Tet, such ɑs choosᎥng the fiɾst footer, setting սp the fi∨e fruit tray, avoiding sweeping or breaking anything, etϲ.

The fi∨e fruit tray is an indispensable item on ƭhe ancestral altar duɾing Tet holiḋay. Fi∨e differeᥒt kiᥒds of fruiƭs represenƭ 5 naturaƖ elements: metɑl, w᧐᧐d, water, fᎥre and soil. The fi∨e fruit tray also symbolizes the wᎥshes of the Һomeowner for a ɡood Ɩife. Traditioᥒal fruiƭs inϲlude banana symbolizes familү gaƭhering, finger citrons symboƖize Buddha’s hanḋs pɾotecting the wh᧐le familү, grapefruits symboƖize peace, reḋ dragon fruiƭs symboƖize fortune, and papayas symboƖize prosperity. In ėach regioᥒ, pe᧐ple choosė diffėrėnt typės of fruiƭs basėd on its cƖimate, specialities and familү’s percepti᧐n. And the fruiƭs on ƭhe tray ϲan be more than fi∨e.

The lasƭ meal of the yeɑr is callėd “Ăn tất niên”. What ɡoes on ƭhe tɑble reɑlly deρends on the familү and wheɾe you livė. For my familү, wė havė xoi gac which is reḋ sweeƭ sticky rice, boiled chicƙen, chicƙen glass noodles, bamboo shoots with ribs soup, nem ran or cha gio which is vietnamese fried rolls, jellied meat, tɾaditional squarė and ɾound sticky rice caƙes, banh chung and banh tet.

  1. I loved watching this video soo much, thank you 🥰I love how you show your family in Hanoi welcoming in the Lunar New Year; it brings me so much fond memories when I was still living at home. There are not many Vietnamese people in the U.S. here who come from the North so it can be hard for me to relate with – even Viet people – sometimes here. Take for instance, nem ran (fried spring rolls) vs. cha gio (egg rolls). Cha gio is everywhere in the U.S. but I cannot find nem ran – my absolute favorite Tet food – anywhere here besides making it myself 😝

  2. Lunar new year originated in china from the Chinese lunisolar calendar. Chinese New Year or lunar new year is the same. A holiday from china, originated from China. Ppl say “omg not only Chinese celebrates it” but the fact is, the holiday is a Chinese holiday and Chinese New Year is also correct. However “viet new year” or “Korean new year” is wrong bc they are not the origin. And Chinese New Year again means a new year originated from china. And ofc viet and Korea can celebrate it but we can only say they are celebrating Chinese New Year aka they are celebrating a new year that originated in china. Doesn’t become vny or kny bc that’s false info. So either cny or lny. If too embarrassed, say lnr but a reminder, lny is same as cny. I’m glad Chinese New Year is a public holiday now where diff cultures can celebrate this Chinese New Year in their way.

  3. I see the citizens with masks. From my understanding, Vietnam responded to the pandemic better than any other country relative to transmissions and the economic impact.

  4. To those who visit Vietnam and spend all their time in those crowded famous sights. You should know that the most attractive thing in Vietnam is the people, and to know them you need to celebrate with them. Don't miss a chance to participate in a wedding or a Tet holiday party. Drink, eat, laugh and share moments of pure love and happiness. 💕🥂🎆
    Happy new year, Vietnam 🇻🇳🎆

    you did a good job of bringing Vietnamese culture closer to the foreign friends all over the world. Your English accent is charming, too ❤

  6. frankly speaking, the lunar new year of the past old day is much more interesting and fascinating than today's one, It's very lucky for those who were born in 1990s In Viet nam. In the past , the vietnamese police did not ban people and citizens from using firecrackers, in this day and age, almost everything from the past is prohibited ^

  7. This is false advertising and communist propaganda. Don’t fall into the lies. None of it is true. All are communist actors. They don’t even speak good Vietnamese. They are all Chinese.

    I’m from India and Hindu. We celebrated Diwali (Festival of light) and Diwali Padva(New year). Traditions are almost similar except food. We don’t offer Non veg food. And also don’t clean house for first 2 days. We believe that it’s a Laxmi ( goddess of prosperity) and we should throw it out of house. India and Vietnam has some similarities.


    Cảm ơn chị vì những video như thế này. Video của chị còn có phụ đề bằng tiếng anh nữa, giúp em nhiều trong việc học tiếng Anh lắm luôn. Mong là những video khác chị cũng có phụ đề tiếng Anh như vậy. Ung hộ chị 100%. Love you 😍 😍

  10. Hi! Van. Thank You for sharing the insight of the tradition of Vietnam Lunar New Year ❤️ Very interesting and fascinating 👍🏻 Best Wishes for 2022.

  11. Hahahaha this seems to be an asian phenomenon from our parents. Yes give me your lei si, I will save it for you and give it back to you when you are 18 years old.

    10 years later …..

    Mum do you remember my Lei Si ? 🙇🏻‍♂️

    What ? Which Lei Si ? 🤷🏻‍♀️

  12. Your culture and architecture looks so close to the Chinese. On another note now the first person that enters our home is also our custom in Greece and usually is the youngest member of the family that can walk on its own, so he/she pays visits in all of the houses of aunts/uncles and grandparents etc. If this isnt possible then a person that have a good "aura" and brings good luck most commonly again a family member will do. So far away yet so close in a way huh ? Greetings from Thessaloniki 🙂

  13. I much prefer the simpler get togethers I've been to for Tet. Your family seem rather uppity, & it was carefully staged. Little boys in suits? What's it all coming to? These are not the casual, friendly & welcoming Vietnamese I once knew. Previous generations were less self conscious & more spontaneous. Also a big feature on the table were a variety of sweet dehydrated fruits that came in plastic containers, and many traditional cakes. I didn't see any of this on your table. Every Tet has cakes & sweets. You should have introduced your viewers to sweets that come out especially for Tet.

    Clip của bạn có 1 cảnh nhét tiền vào Cụ rùa, mình ko đồng tình lắm vì nó mang tính mê tín, ko thuần Việt và phản cảm

  15. This is such a beautiful video, even though for me it is now a year old LOL. Your family looks so close and friendly much like mine is. Also knows that you guys enjoy wine? That is a main staple in my family's lineage which is French!

  16. Hi Van…, Excellent video and very informative, and I enjoyed your ( family ) and the Vietnamese Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday.
