Today was International Day at my school. It can be sort of described as a school festival, with classes still in session. Today was the day where we appreciate diversity and the uniqueness of all the different cultures our high school has. People dressed up from their ethnicity, put on a live show for the seniors while the rest of the school watched the show via television. I think this is one of my favorite days of the school year. My teacher, the head of the whole International Day committee had told me that she expected 600+ dishes to come into school this morning. It literally was the biggest buffet in town, where all the students bought in food to share with others. Today there were many visitors and speakers. In Spanish class, there was a man that traveled all over Latino America and told us stories and the political situations. It was extremely entertaining. So yeah, it was a fun day.

The main point is: What is your culture? How do you feel about your culture? How is it unique?

small town in the USA. our culture goes back to the civil war era. no matter how much our town grows we'll always be a small town, community oriented, everyones polite, everyone waves and smiles at everyone else even those we dont know, our mannerisms and colloquialisms are unique to our area, and almost our whole town is pretty peaceful

i have. some idiot made a thread bashing the people of hmong.


Yea, i've seen alot of bashing against hmong people. But its life, everyone bashes something or someone. Just remember if you let those idiots words get to your head than they already won the fight even if you won the argument.

ummm...im what you call a mandarin mutt.

i speak mandarin but i have family all over the the chinese speakin world.

so i think im partially Mainland Chinese, Aboriginal Taiwanese, a Japanese dude mustve humped one of my ancestors, and I think i am maybe a distant descendant of Ghengis Khan, and also probably a tad bit Korean.

anyways, whats even more interesting is SPANISH was my first language instead of English or Mandarin hehe.

I grew up along the US/MExico border. =)

I wish my school had International days :/ Yours sounds so cool!

Since I'm adopted, I go through Irish, English, Polish, American, and Chinese customs,
