The Tet Festival's organizers describe it as New Year's Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all rolled into one. Fair enough, but the celebration—the first day of the Vietnamese Lunar New Year—may have a leg up on all these holidays. For instance, do most Christmases involve taekwondo? And does Thanksgiving usually have a traditional dragon dance? Outside of these spectacles, there's Vietnamese food, drinks, and a performance by The Wings of the Hundred Viet Dance Company, who translate the country's myths, legends, and history into elegant dances.
