Tet Nguyen Dan
Lunar New Year / Vietnamese New Year, Tet Nguy?n ??n, more commonly known by its shortened name Tet, is the largest, most important and popular holiday and festival in Vietnam. It is the Vietnamese New Year based on the Lunar calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The name Tet Nguy?n ??n (in Sino-Vietnamese) can be loosely translated as Feast of the First Morning. Tet is celebrated on the same day as Chinese New Year. It takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. However the corresponding public holiday started a day earlier, from last day of the last lunar month. Visitors may experience difficulties during this period as shops, restaurants and public services close and prices tend to go up in the few shops that remain open.

Victory Day, Reunification Day, or Liberation Day is a public holiday in Vietnam that marks the occasion Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops captured Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) on April 30, 1975. This signalled the end of the Vietnam War.
In the overseas Vietnamese exile community, the day is remembered as the “Fall of Saigon”, but this term is considered treasonous in present day Vietnam and can lead to harassment or imprisonment.
