In Vietnam, Lunar New Year is called Tet Nguyen-Dan, or Tet. In many ways Tet resembles Lunar New Year in Taiwan, with lots of firecrackers, spring couplets and a long holiday. All businesses close down for at least three days.
Children wish their elders well and get Li Xi (red envelopes) in return. Apricot branches are put in the house to ward off demons. It is particularly auspicious if they bloom on the first day of Tet. A bamboo stripped of all but the top tuft of leaves is placed in the yard to scare away ghosts. Families make a traditional sticky rice cake called Banh Chung before the holiday and eat it together to celebrate the New Year. There is a special Tet dance called Mua Lan with a lion which symbolizes power and prosperity and is accompanied by firecrackers.
