That literally makes zero sense whatsoever. FYI, pretty much everyone in the (very liberal) Bay Area eats Asian food regularly, and I’ve never heard anyone refer to that as “cultural appropriation.” I don’t think that term means what you think it means.

Sorry to barge in on your thread (since I’m not from Alabama), but I saw it on the front page and was curious to see the responses. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, it elicited very different responses from a similar thread on the California board. And I’m Jewish, for the record; so I’ll be doing Chinese takeout and a movie at home tomorrow night. No idea what my family and friends will be up to, so that’s a fine way to do solo Christmas Eve.
Front page?

What? My thread?

No way!

As for the why - I knew that. I know stuff

Hope your Chinese is great. I hope mine is too

Sorry, didn’t mean to get you too excited - by “front page,” I just meant it was showing as most recent post for this forum.

Hope your Chinese food is good too! And btw, that NJMann poster has a pretty clear agenda... I perused their posting history, and let’s just say that their “love/peace/etc” tagline is irony at its best.

I kind of barged in too, so don't feel badly. I "barged" in a nice, and helpful way, I hope. I'm originally from the NYC area, and many people do eat at Chinese restaurants on Christmas. It started as a Jewish tradition, but my family has done it, I have and I'm sure we will again.


Sometimes people are alone, with a very small families - or alternatively very large families. want to eat at a restaurant. Sometimes the designated cook isn't feeling well, is older, or just tired, because most women work these days.

Besides some Asians who are Buddhist, there are many restaurants that are run by Greeks - not only Greek restaurants, diners, family style restaurants, and especially seafood - the Greeks are very big in the restaurant industry. They do not celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25th. - it's sometime in January, that changes every year.

Merry Christmas y'all!
