A big paper-made carp (in yellow) is transported on the back of a truck to a ceremony site to mark 'Kitchen God Day', part of the Lunar New Year or Tet celebrations by Vietnamese, in dowtown Hanoi on February 3, 2013. Vietnamese believe that Tet marks the time when the Kitchen God reports on their family to the Jade Emperor on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month, meaning a week before Tet. On that day families usually burn gold leaf paper and offer live carp for him to ride. AFP PHOTO / HOANG DINH Nam (Photo credit should read HOANG DINH NAM/AFP/Getty Images)
