Hey, everyone. The year is winding down, and the city streets are lined with colored lights, and red and green decorations. It’s Christmas time! I really enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of Christmas. The old Christmas standards with the smooth, mellow baritones hark back to an older, simpler time. And, I love the colorful Christmas lights that light up the dark, winter nights. But, what I want to know is. How do YOU celebrate Christmas, SAMs? How do Asian immigrants celebrate this time of year?
Growing up, my family did celebrate Christmas, though we are not Christians. We were lower middle class financially speaking, so we had a modest amount of presents, nothing to brag about. Perhaps a few CDs, or a few clothes. Nothing extravagant, and I never asked for big ticket items knowing our financial situation.
