The Vietnamese Lunar New Year is a huge part of Pixelz's history and tradition. It is something we are very proud to be part of each year.
The Vietnamese Lunar New Year, known locally as Tết, is the celebration of the arrival of spring following the Vietnamese Lunar calendar. It is the most important holiday of the year for the people of Vietnam - think of it as a combination of Christmas and New Year. During Tết, people will often go home to their families and spend the week reflecting on the past year and looking forward to what the new year holds. On the first day of Tết, people will spend time with their immediate family, and on the subsequent days, they will visit their friends, extended family, and teachers who hold an important standing in Vietnamese culture.
Similar to Chinese New Year, each year has an animal associated with it. 2020 is the year of the Rat! Rats are perfectionists. They communicate extremely well, are quick-witted, level headed, and always alert. We, therefore, hope to live up to these expectations in 2020.
Of course, with any celebration like this, food plays a critical part, where people cook many different types of special dishes like Bánh Chưng, (rice cakes) and Canh Măng Khô (Bamboo with Pork).
This year, Tết falls on Saturday, January 25. What this means for Pixelz is that the vast majority of our staff will be away celebrating with their families and friends before and after January 25. To accommodate this tradition, we have decided to close down the production in Vietnam from Saturday 25 through Monday 27.
On Tuesday, January 28, everyone will be back well-rested and ready to catch up on orders coming in during the holidays. However, during this period, we will not be able to offer our standard delivery times. Unless you have made a separate agreement with a Pixelz rep, these are the deadlines you can expect:
If you can provide us with a forecasted volume during this period, it will allow us to better deliver on those deadlines for you.
You can send us your image forecasts or any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy year of the Rat!
