CROSSCULTURE CURATION POST || 20/10/2021
Hello beautiful people!
@kemmyb here 👋
Welcome to the New Cross Culture's Daily Curation where we bring you some amazing posts from members across communities of different cultures, focusing on but not limited to bilingual posts.
The Cross Culture community, was created by @whatamidoing.
It is a community that supports authors who make posts that share the realities of different cultures first hand, as well as different perspectives and experiences. We look for ways in which cultures can become crosscrossed and enlightening while going beyond stereotypes associated with certain culture.
The authors whose articles have been chosen for this week are all writing content of high quality, which focus on the various topics:
- All bilingual posts
- Posts in regional communities or tags
- Posts related to language or culture
- Posts in our cross culture community
Cross Culture's daily bulletin aims to bring to light all authors whose articles would otherwise remain unnoticed and lost in the platform, therefore we tend to reward authors who create quality posts, giving them a fair chance to establish themselves on the platform.
Howbeit, that's only the half of it!!!
After careful selections, our curators which come from diverse cultures will single out the most outstanding articles among all those curated to create a weekly shout out to the authors from the Top posts of the week.
📌Therefore, here are this week's awesome authors and their posts:
Today is Sharad Purnima. It is one of the most celebrated Purnimas in the Hindu calender. Night of Sharad Purnima is considered to be very auspicious in Hindu culture. Sharad means winter and Purnima means the full moon light. So It is the full moon night observed in the Hindu Calender month of Ashwin. Basically Sharad Purnima marks the end of Monsoon season and arrival of Winter season. Sharad Purnima is also known as Kojagiri Purnima, Kumara Purnima, Kaumudi Purnima in various parts of India.

What I'm going to share you today is one the common way of eating together with their hands, no utensils allowed. This boodle fight is different from other boodle fights because we only have one type of dish. We only have here is chicken "halang halang" or chicken with chili...Since we are all men who will eat it we decided that we will cook the dish with chili or what we call it in our place chicken "halang halang" or chicken with chili...But before everything is going to start, you have to wash your hands first because it's your hands you are going to use no utensils allowed, that's what really boodle fight is.
