Or in the Vietnamese, it's Tết (Lunar New Year)! I know a lot of people in the west don't celebrate it, but I do! So hey! Chúc mừng năm mới :]
It's the year of the Pig, which is charming for a rat like me (I'm still talking zodiacs lol).
My family usually celebrates it today (or on whatever day it is) and party on the weekend. Lucky money gets handed out to everybody. I used to look forward to the new year as a kid because that's when I get lucky money, haha. It's essentially just a second New Year party, if you think about it like that xP
