People look at this time as a time for renewal and forget about old problems and begin anew. Many people will have family reunions, give money to family members, and close out debts. At the strike of midnight people celebrate with fireworks and gongs. Everyone on Vietnam becomes one year older because tradition states that the lunar year determines age and not your individual birthday. Tet is a national public holiday time period where government offices are closed and many businesses are closed as well.
