During thanksgiving break I had the privilege to attend a hmong thanksgiving. My boyfriend, (who is hmong), had a thanksgiving similar to our own. His family is actually Christian instead of Shaman. So their thanksgiving was relatively like our own, except they prayed before eating their meal and dug in. Their food was however different. It was more Asian style type of food with curry, rice, hmong sausage, spring rolls, greens, turkey and chicken, and other types of hmong dishes. In hmong cultural, they eat rice with their meals and also mostly everything is very spicy. I have come to learn that hmong spicy and Hispanic spicy are two totally different. My tongue experienced a harsh experience during that thanksgiving with them. Not only that, but it is considered polite to eat everything on their plate, and sometimes, they pile it on your plate whether you like it or not. So when you eat over at a hmong house, you MUST come hungry.
