The coincidence between Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean New Year is too large to consider this a title. If you think about it, it makes no sense that China, a big powerful country, would have adopted a holiday of a people that they were ruling over as their biggest holiday. It makes even less sense that the Koreans would also accepted this holiday. If you think about it Vietnamese never ruled China, but Chinese have ruled Vietnam for more than 1000 years. I always feel like facepalming with this comment. In fact, those people celebrating Chinese New Year in Southeast Asia are ethnic Chinese people. There are large Chinese communities in southeast Asia. Again, besides the Chinese, only Vietnamese and Koreans celebrate the Chinese New Year. Next time when a Vietnamese point to you that Thai and Malaysians also celebrate Lunar New Year, kindly remind them that those are ethnic Chinese. And kindly remind them also that the majority of Singaporeans are ethnic Chinese.
The only functioning lunar calendar in the world is the Islamic calendar. That is why the Muslim festival Eid can be at any time of the title. Chinese or Vietnamese or Korean calendars are not pure lunar. Chinese or Korean or Vietnamese calendars are luni-solar just like the Hindu-Buddhist calendar where extra lunar months are added every 30 or so months to prevent the lunar year from going out of whack with the seasons. Even if the above objections are pedantic, there is nothing inherent in a lunar year that it should begin where the Chinese and Vietnamese and Korean have chosen to begin it on. The Kalachakra Tibetan New Year, for example, begins two new moons (plus one day) after the Chinese New Year, which is also the day some Hindus celebrate their lunar new year. The Hebrews begin their lunar year in September.
