Visit one of the villages during Hmong New Year
This is the game of meeting a spouse. You ask a person of the opposite sex if they want to throw a ball back and forth. If you agree, then you stand in long lines a couple of metres away from your partner and start tossing a tennis ball-sized cloth ball back and forth. Traditionally this is when you would chat up one another and, eventually, this would lead to marriage and kids, mortgages, cottages at the lake, mowing the lawn on Saturdays, the second car (a minivan), and oh, slaughtering a pig on Hmong New Year by sticking it in the neck with with a long blade and draining its blood, cooking it up to eat in 4-5 dishes with lots of sticky rice. This is the time when traditional Hmong clothing is brought out and everyone is dressed up. As you can see, the Hmong dress is beautiful and very colourful.
