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)
