What is Tết? How is celebrated?

Tet is the Vietnamese New Year, and it is the most important holiday in Vietnam. It is a time for families to come together and celebrate the beginning of the lunar new year.

There are many customs and traditions associated with Tet, such as decorating homes with flowers and other auspicious symbols, preparing special foods, and visiting relatives and friends. Many people also participate in ancestor worship and other religious rituals, and there are often parades and other public events held to mark the occasion.

One of the most distinctive features of Tet is the exchange of gifts, known as "li xi." It is traditional to give gifts of money, fruit, and other items to children, family members, and close friends.Overall, Tet is a time of great joy and celebration for the Vietnamese people, and it is a deeply ingrained part of the country's cultural identity.

Congressmen Lloyd Doggett and the Austin American Statesmen recognized  VACAT's work in the Vietnamese Community

"To dispel some fears related to the vaccine, a local organization called Open Eyes Beyond Border worked with the senior association, along with multiple other organizations, in late March to hold a COVID-19 vaccine information session, where medical professionals from the Austin area answered questions in Vietnamese. 

Well-established groups within the local Vietnamese community, such as the Vietnamese American Community of Austin Texas, or VACAT, helped sponsor the information session. The event also got support from nonprofits that work outside the Vietnamese community. " - Austin American Statesmen

(TEMPORARILY POSTPONED) VACAT'S TET FESTIVAL 2022 (In-Person) 2022 

Dear VACAT Community Partners/Sponsors/Vendors,

 

We would like to update you that, amidst 5 months of planning anticipation, VACAT has decided to postpone—not cancel—our Lunar New Year (Tet) Festival. As you may know, the Austin Public Health Department presently classifies the city’s COVID status as Stage 5. Therefore, for the safety of the public and our volunteers, we think it is wise to postpone our special event until later in the Spring. We sincerely hope, pending how the next few months go, to simply reschedule Tet for March or April. Of course, postponing does not diminish our enthusiasm for this event, the event’s ability to be successful, or how much we value your continued support.

 

Some may wonder if holding Tet a few months later would still hold the same value. While it is atypical to postpone Tet, we are also living in atypical times, given COVID. And, much like our resilient Vietnamese history attests in both Vietnam and the United States, we have always found creative ways to preserve and promote our cultural traditions.

 

Please stay tuned for a forthcoming update from VACAT by the end of February or March, as it is still possible we might be able to hold this special event. We thank you for your continued support. 

 

VACAT Thanks our 2022 Sponsors for their generosity. Our next upcoming event is our In-Person Tet Festival on February 5th, 2022.

Thank you to Loan Factory, Lien Phat Pages, Amerigroup, Community Care, Austin Elite Realty, Full Tax Services, Pho Please, Emerson, Charles Maund Toyota, Pho Phong Lu’u, and the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division.

 

We will be hosting Tet this year on Saturday February 5th at The Holy Family Catholic School Pavilion. We will have cultural programing, celebrations, dragon dance, an ao dai fashion show, a live band, trivia and Vietnamese and carnival games, li -xi, raffles for a 60 inch TV, food vendors and so much more! We can’t wait to see you there!

We are looking for passionate, dedicated and driven people to help us make a difference in the community.  Does this sound like you? Apply today and embark on your chapter with VACAT. 

We can't wait to meet you!

            Điền Thống Kê Dân Số Hôm Nay

            Giúp Phần Đinh Hướng Tương Lai Cho 10 Năm Tới

            Rất mong quý vị điền phiếu Dân Số, có như vậy mình mới lấy tiền trợ cấp nhiều cho tiểu bang. Từ đó, tiểu bang chi cho thành phố, thành phố lại chi cho cộng đồng chúng ta. Tiền mình đóng thuế, mình phải lấy về cho thành phố mở rộng trường học, đường xá cho mình hưởng thụ. Người già và trẻ em được hưởng nhiều nhất. Cộng Đồng cũng được hưởng lây vì có tiếng nói mạnh hơn nếu đại diện cho nhiều người Việt.
            Chúng ta có thể điền online khi nhận được 12 con số họ gởi về nhà sử dụng trang web dưới đây. Hoặc chúng ta có có thể trực tiếp kiếm số đó trên trang web này. TẤT CẢ MỌI NGỪỜI ĐỀU ĐƯỢC GHI, GIÀ, TRẺ, DU HỌC SINH, CÓ HAY KHÔNG CÓ GIẤÝ TỜ CÔNG DÂN MỸ, TRONG TÙ, TRẠI GIAM, NGƯỜI KHÔNG CÓ NHÀ CỬA, CON NÍT SẮP SINH VÀO NGÀY 1 THÁNG 04, V.V.

            Xin Mọi Người Chú Ý phải vào trang nhà trên để điền.  Cénsus không bao giờ hỏi những phần sau đây:

            • Số an sinh xã hội
            • Số nhà bank hay thẻ tín dụng
            • Không hỏi gì về chính trị hay cho người làm chính trị.
            • Tiền hay xin trợ giúp tiền

             

            Census Bureau will never ask for:
            • Your Social Security number.
            • Your bank account or credit card numbers.
            • Anything on behalf of a political party.
            • Money or donations.

              Lợi Ích Cho Ai?

              • Hàng tỷ đô la trong ngân quỹ liên bang được chi cho các bệnh viện, sở cứu hỏa, trường học, đường sá và những nguồn lực khác dựa trên dữ liệu thống kê dân số.
              • Trợ giúp xã hội cho người già và trẻ em chiếm gần hơn phân nữa.
              • Cộng đồng dựa trên dân sô để đại diện, phát biểu, và quyên góp nguồn trợ giúp cho người dân địa phương.
