Tet, the Vietnamese New Year celebration

Calligraphers work overtime, in studios and on sidewalks, to write New Year greetings. Photo courtesy of Ngoc Chinh. 
January 23 began the celebration of Tet, which lasts longer than a week and takes the full attention of everyone in Vietnam.   
Chúc mừng năm mới!  Best wishes to everyone out there for the Year of the Dragon.
These three traditional sages offer health, prosperity and long life, written in Vietnam's distinctive Thư Pháp script. 
Part of the Dragon is formed here from letters.
