How long do Tet celebrations continue?

I've hear that the celebrations surrounding Tet last for weeks. Does anyone know when the festivities for this Tet will conclude and business and family life return to normal?

The buying or shopping and getting ready for TET lasts about 2 weeks, then you have TET which has everything to do with family, then it is over in about a week and everyone goes back to work. Normal should now be the norm.

Things are just about getting back to normal( families were still returning yesterday with pet cages etc).....so about 10days from Tet itself.

As jaxfl1 says you also have the pre Tet splurge but everything is usually normal until about 2 days before Tet. Tet itself is a quiet time here for foreigners.

And prices do increase, I see fares were mentioned in the local news as nigh on doubled. Food prices go up too despite the Government saying there should be no increase....in one ear and out the other comes to mind.
