Tet Lunar New Year Celebration

Tet Lunar New Year Celebration

The Vietnamese Lunar New Year will be celebrated on February 3rd , 2-4pm at 20 Nelson Road!

Welcome to the Year of the Rooster!  

Thanks to Donna Ramil and the Cornell Vietnamese club, the Tet celebration will take place again this year at the Ithaca Waldorf School!  Come see the lion dance, and the fan-dance, and learn a traditional song.  There will be a story to enchant you, and opportunities to make lovely decorations and traditional spring rolls.  For those who were able to celebrate last year, you will know this is an event not to be missed!   Invite a friend to join in the celebrations!

Tet is the most important celebration in Vietnam, where the holiday centers around family and food. Traditions vary throughout the country, but generally people travel to their home towns, clean their homes thoroughly, pay-off debt, buy new clothing, get a haircut, prepare an altar to worship their ancestors, and cook special foods, all in an effort to start the Lunar New Year on a positive note. During the actual three-day holiday, work ceases and people spend the time visiting with families and friends.  

 

The Tet tree is traditional in Vietnam, with families, businesses, and public institutions displaying one for the holiday.  The branches are cut from flowering fruit trees and the color will vary, depending on the region.  In the north, peach branches, with the pink flowers, are more common, while in the south, apricot trees, with yellow flowers, are used.   Flowering branches are harder to come by (and more expensive), so many families attach silk flowers to bare branch, like we did for the one at IWS.
