  1. That is wonderful!…

    …And, not remotely surprising. There is some very interesting cultural syncretism occurring up in Vancouver, B.C. When I was there in June of ’13 for the Irish/Scottish Studies conference, one of the things that was done is a hint at the usual Gung Haggis Fat Choy Chinese New Year/Robert Burns Day festival they hold, which is the brainchild of a Chinese guy who really likes Scottish culture. For the conference’s banquet (I don’t usually attend those, but it sounded so interesting on this occasion I had to, and I’m glad I did!), they did this dinner, where the haggis was piped in, as usual for Burns’ Day, and a Chinese dragon followed it. We had haggis dumplings–much better than actual haggis, in fact!–and the rest of the dinner was quite good. And, we had a First Nations women’s singing group who performed as well. Simon Fraser University was associated with the conference, and since they’re the umbrella context involved here, it makes sense…

    Thanks for sharing this! 🙂
