When having any conflict, try to calm down and keep it as peaceful as possible.Sweep houseBe ready to live with dust and dirt on three days of Lunar Tet as you are not recommended to sweep your house or throw away the rubbish so as to prevent luck and benefits from going with it. Nowadays, you can use the broom to gather the rubbish into one pile and after 3 days Tet you can clear it out.Avoid wearing black or white, go for red Go For RedAccording to the traditional Vietnamese’s concept, black and white or dark clothes remind of funerals. These colors have not been accepted on Lunar New Year Holidays. Red color is encouraged for this festival.Commit crueltyPeople also should not do cruel things like killing or hurting animals. Instead, they are recommended to set animals free. The most common animals set free in Tet holidays is birds. That is the reason why birds are sold during Tet holidays in pagodas. This belief is originated from Buddhism’s causality which states that if people do good things, they will be blessed with good luck.Don’t take water and fire away from Vietnamese housesIn Vietnamese customs, fire can be regarded to be the source of the family’s warmth whereas water recalls the popular wish “Tien vo nhu nuoc” (Money rushes in like water), taking water out of somebody’s house is similar to taking away their wealth. Hence, don’t take things that are related to water or fire out of somebody’s house.Avoid demanding money during TetIf you suddenly remember that someone has borrowed money from you, Tet is not a suitable time to require them to repay you. Traditionally, Vietnamese people believe that if they return or borrow money at the beginning of the year, they will have to borrow and repay money for the rest of the year.
