Hi Vivian,
“Mâm ngũ quả” is literally translated as “a tray of 5 types of fruits”, which refers to 5 different types of fruits displayed on the altar of Vietnamese families during the lunar new year. The types of fruits vary in different regions. Some of them are water melon, banana, grapefruit, kumquat, grape, etc.
“Người xông nhà” refers to the first person to enter someone’s house on the first day of the lunar new year. In Vietnam, the first person who enters your family on the first day of the new year is very important. A person of good temper, morality and success will be the lucky sign for the host family during the coming year and be invited first into the house.

Cheers,
Giang

What does mâm ngũ quả and người xông nhà mean? They do not have the english translation! 😜
