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. In any celebration like this, food plays a critical part. People cook many different types of special dishes like Bánh Chưng (rice cakes) and Canh Măng Khô (Bamboo with Pork).
Similar to Chinese New Year, each year has an animal associated with it. 2021 is the year of the Buffalo! Buffalos are known for diligence, dependability, strength, and determination. Having great patience and a desire to make progress, Buffalos can achieve their goals by consistent effort. At Pixelz, we strive to live up to these expectations in 2021.
This year, Tết falls on Friday, February 12th. This means the vast majority of our staff will be away celebrating with their families and friends before and after February 12th. To accommodate this tradition, we have decided to close down production in Vietnam on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th. On Monday, February 15th, 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, this is the turnaround time you can expect:
If you can provide us with a forecasted volume during this period, it will allow us to plan even better and minimize the impact of delays. You can send us your image forecast and address questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or to your dedicated Customer Success Manager.
Happy Year of the Buffalo!
