Tet 2024, 2025 and 2026

The traditional New Year’s Day of Vietnam and much of Asia comes on the first day of the first month of the ancient lunisolar calendar. This typically puts “Tet” in late January or early February on the Gregorian Calendar. The holiday is celebrated for several consecutive days.

Traditionally, people will clean their houses as Tet approaches in an attempt to “sweep away” any bad luck that has accumulated from the old year. You should never clean on Tet itself.

People will visit relatives and friends during the three days of Tet, and they will also visit temples and shrines. Some may seek to honour their ancestors on this day.

Homes are often decorated for the season. Families will also gather to feast on sumptuous dishes, snacks, and sweets and to start the new year together.
