Tết is the Vietnamese New Year, marked by the Lunar calendar. It is a very special holiday in Vietnam, the traditions are to make certain foods, clean house and give gifts of money. For more details, see the Wikipedia entry all about Tết.
We celebrated Tết and Chinese New Year Monday night with our friends in the FCC. We had a Chinese dinner at Miss Yip's restaurant on South Beach and we were entertained with a really great dragon dance and firecrackers!
We welcome in the Year of the Buffalo!
Here are pics from our Chinese New Year Dinner at Miss Yip's
We hold you in our heart and touch you in our dreams. You are here each day with us, at least that's how it seems. We know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long. But remember child, we love you so and that will keep you strong. Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin... Because tonight, just as always, we blow you kisses in the wind. We promise you, darling, we're doing all that we can do. Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend. But for tonight, just as always, we blow you kisses in the wind. May our love wrap you up and hold you very tight. And let the angels bring the kisses that we send to you each night.
