Chinese here celebrates a lot in restaurants. A cousin and his family will be visiting Shanghai, China for the first time. And that will be an occasion for the boss to invite them out for meals, as a kind of well wishing. We are fortunate to tag along, since we all are related. Feasting is a very common social behaviour among Asians, whether it’s for sad or happy occasions. I suppose in ancient times, people are uncertain when the next meal will come, so eat while you have the opportunity to satiate. It has become a ritual, rooted in tradition.
