Happy Lunar New Year!! Many people often call it Chinese New Year, but it's not only China that celebrates... Vietnam does too! Tết, as we call it, is the most anticipated holiday of the year. In fact, many businesses (in Vietnam) are actually closed for at least seven days, with some for upwards of ten days. Let's celebrate!

Year of the Pig
Pigs are known to be passionate, caring, & also realistic. They're often a bit materialistic, but they are good with managing finances. Energetic & enthusiastic are common traits, but they can be hard-headed. It's common for pigs to have great concentration, remain calm in hard times, & lend a helping hand when needed.
If you were born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, or 2019 (after today!), you were born in the year of the pig! If you have a January or February birthday, the tricky part is figuring out whether you were born before or after Lunar New Year. For example, I was born in January of 1996, but since my birthday was before Lunar New Year, I'm considered a 1995 baby.
Also, there are actually five different types of pigs (wood, fire, earth, metal, & water), & each have their own characteristics as well. I'm a wood pig, & wood pigs are said to be good-natured, easy-going, & brave. Do a quick Google search of your birthday to find out what your Lunar zodiac is & comment below!
Lì xì, also known as red envelopes, are a common sighting around this time of year. Traditionally, those who are married &/or have children gift red envelopes to individuals who are not married & don't have kids. Yes, the rumors are true: enclosed in lì xì is money.
The act of giving (& receiving) red envelopes symbolizes good luck & good fortune. Many also believe that the more you give, the more good fortune you'll receive throughout the year. More specifically, amounts ending in 8 are considered very lucky, & so is receiving a $2 bill.
