One special way that Tet is celebrated is through decorations. Like Christmas, Tet decorations start going up in homes and stores at least 2 weeks before the actual holiday.
Decorations include huge storefronts sponsored by big names like Pepsi and Coke.

In the parks and around the lakes, the city contributes large Tet displays for public enjoyment.

|A 30-foot long floral sidewalk display. My "panarama" function makes it look curved, but it's actually straight and long.|
|Tet ornaments dangle 15 feet in the air. Each ornament is about 2 feet across.|
|Potted plants are installed all around Hoan Kiem Lake.|
