Lunar New Year begins?
The New Year begins on the eve of the New Year, the most sacred moment of the year, the transition between the old and the new year, the moment of transition to human harmony with nature.
In previous years, traditionally, at the moment of transition, each family used to firework to welcome a new year and to dispel the unlucky ones. Since 1994 Vietnam has banned the firework because of the risk of fire and explosion. Instead, the state organizes fireworks at public places for people to enjoy.
During this time, according to Vietnamese, ancestors will return to reunion with their children in their family. So after the New Year's Eve, the whole family gathered around the ready-made tray, together to raise the glass and eat the first meal of the new year.

In modern life, many children cannot be present at the first meal of new year due to their work are gradually getting more and more families, especially grandparents and parent who have been familiar to modern life.
According to ancient custom, after the New Year's Eve, people often go to the temple to burn incense to pray for tiding to their family in the new year. When going home, they pick up a tree called “hái lộc” pick up to home. However, today, the custom of picking a tree is gradually replaced by buying a pair of sugar cane to home, and also do not forget to buy some salt, which is meaning desire in the emotional family, the harmony, the bond between the couple, the children. According to ancient people, salt is the salty stuff that can dispel evil spirits and bring more luck in their family and also the symbol of passionate affection, salty concentration, close enough to everyone. "Early in the year buy salt, year-end buy lime"
