And where did you come from?

October 31, 2002

The Huntington Beach Independent went to Circle View School for

Immigration Day, a celebration about studying the students' heritage,

and asked some of the fifth-graders in Alice French's class, 'What

have you learned about your heritage while researching your

background?'

"The Irish had a lot of festivities in the old days -- they are

mostly farmers with livestock and eat meat and potatoes."

"I learned about Vikings and their history and learned how to make

delicious Norwegian waffles. Norwegians are some of the most fit --

one guy lived to be 146 years old."

"I learned a lot about the Samurai -- all about their food, what

they eat, how fish is cooked. I learned how to cook sushi and also

learned about their religion and sports."

"I learned about China and about festivals after talking to my

grandparents. They told me about all these different customs they

celebrate and all the different traditions."

ALLISON WALLINGFORD, 10
