Reunion Dinner With My Late Mommy & Ancestors [PICS]

As usual, a day before Chinese New Year, we Chinese will gather and enjoy our customary reunion dinner with our family in the evening. But before that, in the morning, we will be offering sumptuous food and delicacies to our ancestors. It's like we are having our reunion dinner with our beloved departed ones. Do you have this formality in your family? This year was a bit different for mommy dearest because she would be enjoying her reunion dinner in our new home. Yay! Let the feast begin.

Hopefully mommy enjoyed her feast as much as we did (after we had finished praying). Having said (blogged about) that, we are going to have our reunion dinner pretty soon.
