New Year’s Thoughts.

Posted in Random with tags , , on February 7, 2008 by winjuroo

First of all, I’d like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of the people that celebrate the Chinese New Year. Contrary to belief, this isn’t the new year for us Laos people yet. lol. Our new year isn’t until mid April… butANYWAYS, I just had the thought…

New Years is the time where families reunite and pay their respect to the elders. Does one think of why or how this came about? Maybe to pay homage to the past and for better fortune? Or maybe just to get a lotta money/gifts? lol. I dunno the answer, but the moral of this post is that people should try to better understand their culture. Try to understand the history of why things are the way they are now. Maybe you will attain a better appreciation of your heritage, like I have…
