The answer would not be bec of food or drink nor occasions; we miss people, our families and friends. We are trying to incorporate celebrations such as fiestas etc in our little community abroad not because we miss eating in feasts but because we miss the people we get to go with those times. The memories comes back each time we encounter similar happenings. We may not be with the same persons but at least almost the same feels.
Some would think we are living luxuriously having big parties but what is it to spend some just for a night from the money we earn during those lonely days with our sweat and blood? Seeing familiar faces and chatting in our very own dialect keeps us sane and warm in these cold days. ❤
