Tết – chúc mừng năm mới

February 4, 2011

Happy New Year!  2011 is the Vietnamese year of the cat (mèo/mão).
(Chinese year of the rabbit)

On Saturday we kicked off the holiday celebrations with a trip to the Vietnamese Cultural Show.  Alexa adored the Lion Dance and can’t get enough of watching this video over and over again!

Yesterday was the official start to the Lunar New Year.  We spent the evening with Peter’s family and were able to begin the new year with a wonderful meal and great company.

We honored the family elders with wishes of:

  • Sống lâu trăm tuổi (Long life of 100 years)
  • An khang thịnh vượng (Security, good health, and prosperity)
  • Sức khoẻ dồi dào (Plenty of health)
  • Cung hỉ phát tài (Congratulations and be prosperous)
  • Tiền vô như nước (May money flow in like water)

Alexa played along nicely and hopefully will be able to participate officially next year!

Take a peak at the photos!!!
