It is the occasion for Vietnamese to express their respects for ancestors as well as welcoming the lunar New Year with family members.

I know Scott had not listed the NLF issues (as of my 2017 Scott) but wondering they have added them since then.

Most of the stamps issued for use by Viet-Minh (VM) forces during first Indochina war, were overprinted French Indochina stamps. Only one set of stamps was designed and issued special for the VM. It is a set of 5 stamps shows Ho Chi Minh issued in two part during 1946-8. The two on the right are semi-postal Stamps with inscription: "Pho Thu Cuu Quoc", meaning "For National Defense":

Scott catalogue lists more two stamps, printed on a very delicate rice paper issued specifically for the VM with design of HCM. Michel catalogue lists them under Vietnam.

Any way, my smallest stamps in my collections were issued by Vietnam during the 70-80's. Here is the smallest of them from 1981 about worker militia:

For comparison, I scanned it with France definitive stamp:

Here are other small format stamps from 1979 about five years plan:
