Texas Tech Vietnam Center to Welcome Year of the Snake

Facebook

The Texas Tech Vietnam Center and Archive will celebrate Tet, the Vietnamese New Year next week.

The group will welcome the Year of the Snake from 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, February 15th at the International Cultural Center Hall of Nations, at 601 Indiana Avenue.

Tet is celebrated on the first day of the first month in the Lunar Calendar, which falls on February 10th.

In Vietnam, the snake is considered a symbol of luck, leading some to believe that 2013 will be a year of prosperity and peace.

Tet is considered the largest and most popular festival of the year in Vietnam, and is an occasion for the Vietnamese to express respect for their ancestors while welcoming a new year with family. People avoid cleaning during Tet so that good luck will not be swept away.

A special presentation will be given by the Vietnamese Student Association, and traditional Vietnamese food will be served.

The event is free and open to the public.
