Happy New Years.

This blog post is timed so that you receive it as you it as you arrive at work on the first day after the new years holiday. Why? Because there are some hints and tricks that I want to talk about involving holidays, and it seemed the thing to do.

First, Vietnam has eleven annual holidays. That means there are eleven chances to relax and refresh without stressing your personal holiday reserves. Most of these holidays fall around Tet, but there are others.

The thing is, if you’re an expat working in Vietnam, you technically get thirteen days of official holidays. First, you get an extra day during Tet for travel. And second, your native national day is considered a holiday for you. That means you get two days that the local staff don’t get.

That’s it. That’s all I wanted to point out. A short blog. But one to be remembered. So yeah, Happy New Years. And may the coming year be filled with fun, adventure, and prosperity. May you have harmony in your family and work environment, and may you find yourself pleased with your progress as a human being.

Happy New Years.
