Each calendar sheet resembles a sophisticated painting with images, patterns and textures hand-drawn by artists based on the idea of the national treasure featured on the sheet.

Through all the 365 calendar sheets, viewers will get an overall picture of the country's history, politics, economy, culture and society over thousands of years of building and defending the country, marked by the milestones of 238 national treasures.

According to the historian Duong Trung Quoc, this elaborate block calendar brings together concise and vivid information and images about more than 200 national treasures now kept by many localities. In fact, this can be considered as an "encyclopedia" of national treasures.

At the Thai Family Ancestral House, Prof. Dr. Thai Kim Lan’s family had prepared banh chung, banh tet, phap lam, and phu the cakes from the previous day. After finding a satisfactory bamboo pole, the homeowner would perform a ceremony to worship the ancestors and then arrange incense table, candle, betel nut, wine, etc. in front of the yard to begin the ritual. Red couplets would also be prepared in advance and written in a conventional calligraphy style. In a dignified and joyful atmosphere to welcome the new year, the bamboo pole will be erected with the joyful jingle of the bell hanging from the top of the bamboo pole. The bamboo pole will celebrate Tet with the family and neighborhood until it is lowered on the 7th of January (Lunar Calendar) when everyone goes back to work in the new year.
