• We did indeed, and do you celebrate a Thanksgiving in your part of the world? Here, in Canada, it’s a celebration of the harvest and Fall.

  1. We don’t. But the Chinese New Year reunion dinner is kinda like Thanksgiving. It’s on the eve of the Chinese new year and everyone is required to return to their parents’ home for the dinner, resulting in a massive exodus. The traffic jam is seriously bad. During that time, it takes me 8 hours to drive back to my hometown whereas on a regular day, it’s only a 3-hour drive!

      Ah, of course, yes. I can imagine Veronica. Like Christmas AND Thanksgiving all rolled into one. Gifts, food, honouring the ancestors. But mostly, lots of family.

      I remember going with my parents as guests to celebrate, when we lived in Singapore. It was a privilege and an honour and so much fun!
