What is Tet

Usually the Vietnamese (Lunar) New Year, also called "Tet" is 1 - 2 months after the American New Year's Day. Therefore, the year of the new animal doesn't start exactly on Jan 1.  The Vietnamese New Year and Chinese New Year are always on the same dates of each other. They share the same calendar. 2019 is Year of the Pig.
