Being from a predominately Chinese community in Vancouver Canada, the days ceremony in Texas wasn’t in the grand style of political statements that I’ve become accustomed to. Although Texas has the fastest growing Asian community in North America it’s still much more diversified than the ghetto atmosphere of most ethnic area’s in Canada. In this way of merging the communities into a greater whole the Chinese Lunar festival was attended by a broad cross section of the Asian community rather than being promoted as dominated for one ethnicity or another…quite refreshing, compared to Canada’s politically stoked tension between singular groups for vote,s cash and favor. IMHO Texas comes out on top again for pride and mellow good times.
