I remember celebrating Tet (Lunar New Year) during my childhood. My parents would bring my brother and me to a party and there would be a dragon dance. And every year, that dragon would come near me and open its big furry jaws to the beat of the loud drums and I would cry and hug my dad so I couldn't see it. Every. Single. Time. Ugh, why did they torture me like that?

I hated those parties because of that dragon. But I would be happy because at the end of the ceremony, all the kids would get bright red envelopes embellished with gold foil. Inside would be cash! 

I sure do miss that cash...

As I got older, I would participate in the fan dance with other girls my age. I wish I could do that again. Or at least wear an áo dài again. :) 

Wishing you prosperity and luck,

p.s. You can see more of these pretty Lunar New Year finds in my Etsy treasury.
