The New Moon of the first Lunar Month
So Happy Vietnamese, Thai Dam, Hmien and Chinese New Year! I'm sure that there are other groups that celebrate the new year on this day, but I'm just listing the ones I know. People in Xieng Khouang are already getting together to kin khut. I'll be going downtown this evening for parties, and see where I end up at midnight. It's good luck for an honored guest to be the first one to enter your house after midnight.
