A couple days ago, I attended my American friend’s father-in-law’s death anniversary at his house in Ben Thanh District. A death anniversary is normally all day long. Family and close friends who up during different parts of the day. Normally for the men, it will involve heavy drinking. They may stay all day drinking. The meal includes 2-3 courses which includes a hot pot.
Despite the name, death anniversaries are a great way to meet people and can be quite interesting.
