January 1 is the Western New Year, the United States is given a day off to celebrate this important event. Often Americans will be on holiday in combination with the 6,7th and they have a total of 3 Tet holidays – a modest figure. Before the turn of the year, Americans didn’t “eat” but “drank”. They can sit in pubs or gather in the house in front of the screen, watching the countdown of the last moments of the old year. If they are in New York, they can squeeze in Time Squares, waiting directly for the ball to fall like the dot of the old year to turn to the new year in the glow of fireworks. In the meantime there are also some singing shows with famous singers.
