Tết is the occasion for Vietnamese to express their respect and remembrance for their ancestors as well as welcoming the New Year with their beloved family members. Moreover, in the past, Tết was essential as it provided one of few long breaks during the agricultural year, which was held between the harvesting of the crops and the sowing of the next ones. To make it easier, one can imagine Tết as a combination of Christmas and New Year: every family will get together to have big meals, decorate Tết trees and eat Tết food but to welcome the new year instead of a religious cause.
