This is a photo story about how our family’s culture brought us together during quarantine. My family and I are very busy people. I would be at ballet almost everyday for late nights and the same thing goes with my brother and his basketball practices. We rarely have time to get together and celebrate our culture as a family. Quarantine has allowed us to spend more time with each other and celebrate all our Ethiopian traditions way more.
Here we have my parents doing this really funny Ethiopian tradition. You basically feed the person next to you but you have to do it three times. They say “feed them once, you're my acquaintance, feed them twice, you’re my friend; feed them three times and you're my best friend!”
