I’ve been chatting with Tala Mikaele-Malo, the wife of Isaako Malo, the pastor at the New Life Samoan Assembly of God church. They’re preparing for White Sunday next week, when the congregation’s children plan and run the entire service. It’s one of the biggest events each year in Samoan culture, she told me.

That got me thinking: Is there something unique to your culture that’s more important than most people realize? What do you look forward to all year?
