The United Nations (UN) has passed a resolution designating Lunar New Year as an annual UN holiday for the first time from 2024, after a coordinated campaign led by more than 10 countries, including Vietnam. As such, the Lunar New Year will be one of 10 annual UN holidays from 2024. This adoption marked the international community’s recognition of traditional Asian culture, and was the result of a coordinated advocacy process at the UN by 12 member countries, including Vietnam. Every year, the UN secretary general extends his best wishes to all people of all countries that celebrate the Lunar New Year around the world. The coming Lunar New Year in Vietnam begins on February 10.
