Christmas in China
The experience of celebrating Christmas in China, from one Western woman with a Chinese husband.
There’s something joyful about celebrating Christmas with a total newcomer to the holiday — someone who brings a fresh perspective to silent night.
I love my Chinese husband and his hometown. But as I prepare to spend another holiday season in China, I’m dreaming of a white Christmas back in the US.
All these years, I had it wrong. When my husband mentioned the Winter Solstice sesame balls his mother made, I thought they were a version of tangyuan.
This year, I’m giving my Chinese family here in Zhejiang a taste of Christmas…with some inevitable Chinese characteristics.
Valentine’s Day arrives this Tuesday, February 14. In honor of the day, I’m pulling out some of my favorite Valentine-related content from the archives.
