A MMXLII Holiday by Tiffany Chin

We had a lot of fun sharing what some friends of our website did for their Thanksgiving holiday and decided to keep it going for the end of the holiday season.  Many people are celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and of course Christmas in these next couple weeks or so but that doesn’t mean they all celebrate the exact same way.  With all the different cultures in the United States we are sure that some people celebrate their holidays differently based on their ethnic backgrounds while others are finding ways to accommodate friends with different holiday traditions.  Over the next week or so, MMXLII is looking to share those stories with the world.  A friend of the site, Tiffany Chin has submitted to us, how she celebrates her holiday with family and friends.

“I celebrate Christmas! However, our family is very non-religious. We celebrate Christmas because its such a pervasive holiday in the US, and to us, the holiday season is about family and love. 

We’re actually going out for Christmas, but in the past we have made ham and turkey, with a plethora of Chinese dishes including fried noodles (noodles of any sort are often eaten on birthdays, holidays etc because they represent long life), vegetables, etc.”
This is pretty cool, we have a number of members on the team that enjoy Chinese food and we don’t think anyone would have an issue adding some traditional Chinese dishes to accompany some of your ham and turkey on Christmas day.  Stay tuned for more stories like this, and if you want to share your unique holiday meals or celebrations make sure to reach out to us on Facebook.
