I am an American student studying in Beijing for part of the summer. I have recently made a Chinese friend through my university who is the same age as me. She invited me to her home for a Dragon Boat Festival dinner with her family on Wednesday (tomorrow!). Should I bring a gift? What should I bring? How about fruit? I don't have anything from my home that I could give her and her family (I wish I did). If I bring a gift, should I give the gift to my friend or to her mother? Are there any other delicacies of Chinese etiquette I should be aware of?
Thanks so much!
