Traditional New Year in Vietnam

Saa osa Vietanami ühest suurimast pidustusest.

Vietnamese Lunar New Year, more commonly known by its shortened name Tết, is the most important and traditional holiday and festival in Vietnam. It is the Vietnamese New Year derived from the Chinese New Year based on the Lunar calendar, alunisolar calendar. The name Tết Nguyên Đán is Sino-Vietnamese for Feast of the First Morning, derived from the Kanji characters節元旦.
Tết takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. Many Vietnamese prepare for Tết by cooking
special holiday foods and decorating their houses. There are a lot of customs practiced during Tết, like visiting a person’s house on the first day of the new year, ancestral worshipping,
wishing New Year’s greetings, giving lucky money to children and elderly people, and opening a shop.


Aims for this project are:

  • To createa chance for disadvantaged children to participate in the Tet holiday festival by
    making Chung cakes.
  • To provide an opportunity for international volunteers to experience Vietnamese culture.
  • To expose the children to different cultures and people from around the world by
    working within ternational volunteers
  • To promote friendship between local people and international volunteers during
    workcamp (share experiences, skills, things in life etc).

Work description

Leisure and exchange activities 

As you know the work camp is not only to help the disadvantaged people but is also a chance to meet new friends, learn about local people, and share your experiences with other people.
Volunteers have free time during their lunch break time, and in the evening, as well as on weekends. This is an opportunity to you and other volunteers to arrange different activities to
