A friend of mine is moving to Korea, so I invited some people over for a small party, where I included some Korean snacks (ie, pineapple cookies, shrimp chips, green tea biscuit-type of small cookies, pear and mandarin juices). There were mostly Americans at the party, but a couple of the people who came were from Lithuania, and they gave me Lithuanian chocolates with a small Lithuanian flag. I never knew what their flag looked like, which is why I'm posting it here. What's great about the U.S. is you can mix different countries' stuff under one roof, and it can still make sense.

I didn't know that the flag of Lithuania looked like that either.....
Good to hear you had a cool mixed culture party :-D
Hey, I am not sure what you mean when you write: What's great about the U.S. is you can mix different countries' stuff under one roof, and it can still make sense. (maybe it's cos I am feeling a tad tipsy from having a glass of wine on an empty stomach before dinner!)
I said that because in some countries, it's hard to get stuff such as food from other countries, but in the U.S., you can find food from everywhere--especially in the cities. So when you combine all that stuff in one place, it's not strange but makes sense :D
