How We Celebrate Festivals in America

Filed under: Friend — admin @ 12:18 am

In China, festival is the occasion when people get together with their extended family members, grandparents, aunts and uncles. In America for most of Chinese who are far away from their extended families, they spend festivals with friends.

It has become a custom for us to either invite friends to come over or go to friends’ house for a gathering. When Spring Festival falls on weekday, the party will be held on the following weekend.

This year is no exception. Yesterday we spent the evening with a family friend and had a nice time chatting over self-cooked food. The topics over dinner table were politics, parenting, and Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn book, all of which were my favorites.
