Happy Tet! It's Vietnamese New Year!
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
