The Tet Holiday is the most important holiday in Vietnam. On this traditional holiday, people are usually not working. They come back to their hometown and enjoy the holiday with family. Before the Tet Holiday, people come to the market, super market, shop etc. to buy the new things for their house (furniture, clothes, flower, fruit, etc.), then decorate or renew the house. In the Lunar New Year Eve, members in the family gather together, eating the meal, sharing their story about their work, job, their life for the whole past year, as well as the new plan in the new year. From 1st to 3rd Lunar New Year is the time for rest, visiting relatives or travelling.
