The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
