The calligraphy
On the days of Tet, Vietnamese people like to wear Ao Dai to go to the street and to ask letters from the calligraphers to give each other. Each of the letters and words in the calligraphy contains good meanings instead of wishes for a prosperous and happy new year. When going to the street, if you see the image of a calligrapher grinding ink and writing parallel sentences on red scrolls, then it is time to begin to feel the atmosphere of Tet.
Enjoying tea: A beauty of Vietnamese culture
That’s not only the elegant pleasure, but brings the cultural quintessence of Vietnamese people. After the New Year’s Eve or in the mornings of the new year, members in their families often get together around the table and drink  tea, eat some jam and share the funny stories or wishes to strengthen their love. That is the meaning of Tet Holiday.
