Through the artile we can see how author says about variety between Asians calendar and world’s calendar. Every traditional community cultural activity has two parts: the festival and the festival. With the Lunar New Year, there may be many opinions that the festival is the main because it is still called “Tet” in Vietnam. However, with my the traditional cultural perspective as a Vietnamese people, during the Lunar New Year, the ceremony is focused and implemented more. Although it may have been prepared months ago, December has always been a sprint time. The first and most important thing is to worry about visiting, embellishing and restoring ancestral graves and grandparents to show their affection and regret towards the deceased. Then in the tray of rice in the thirtieth year of the year, how many incense sticks and fruits and spring-day dishes together with the heart of the people are revered, looking forward to the ancestors, the gratitude for the past year and praying for the coming year to be safe and prosperous. Meanwhile, Asian countries, including Vietnam, often use the lunar calendar, which means the new year will start later, between January and February, even in Burma often in April. I think calendar systems are complicated because the number of days in a month or a year is not fixed. The lunar calendar is based on observing the astronomical cycle, while the solar calendar is divided into sets of days similar to the astronomical cycle that’s why between Asian’s calendar and world calendar have big differences.
