Festive Tradition and Food in ASH
International Gathering for the American School of the Hague Community
The International Committee organised “Festive Traditions and Food from Around the World” at the Elementary School Atrium. This was a unique opportunity to hear about how different countries and cultures celebrate their festive traditions at this special time of year. Tables representing Italy, Iceland, Mexico, Norway, Malaysia, India, Belgium, Greece, Korea, UK, Israel, Nigeria, and The Philippines explained how they celebrate their different festivities. We learned more about other countries' traditions and sample their yummy food.
I was there to represent Malaysia and talk about the various festivities in the Malay culture.
A great big thank you to Doris for her support and help.
