Eating Christmas In the Kalahari
What is the basis Of the misunderstanding experienced by Lee when he gave an ox for the
Christmas feast held by the Kung?
The basis Of misunderstanding around the ox was that the ox was big, but had no meat.
The ox was an older ox so therefore most Of its meat was gone, it was just skin and
bones. And if they didn't get enough to eat, no one would have the energy to get up and
dance and enjoy the festivities. But in the end the ox was perfect, it was full Of fat and
full Of meat that would be enjoyed by everyone for two nights. And the bones could
even be used to make soup for other tribe members.
Why do you think the Kung ridicule and denigrate people who have been successful hunters or
who have provided them with a Christmas ox? Why do Americans expect people to be grateful
to receive gifts?
• I thought it was interesting that they ridiculed him for being a successful hunter. But
they do it with good intentions, I think it's a great idea because you want the gift giver
to be humble and kind. You don't want the person providing the gift to be in their head
about it and feel like everyone owes them something. It is not about What you receive in
return, it is about doing something good and expecting nothing in return. I think we as
Americans are used to people being grateful for getting a gift, but grateful in the sense
that they will return the favor. I am not very big on gifts, I love giving them, but I don't
feel the need to receive them, and I don't think anyone should ever feel obligated to
give someone a gift.
Provide a specific example Of cross-cultural misunderstanding that you have experienced or
have heard Of. Why do you think your example Of cross-cultural misunderstanding occurred?
• An example Of cross culture misunderstanding that I have recently experienced was at
work. I work in a restaurant as a server and one Of my tables was a family from
Australia. At first, I was really confused when he kept asking me for chips and it took me
a minute to realize that he was asking for fries, it took just as long for him to realize that
I had no clue why he was asking for chips as in American we call them fries. As the night
continued at one point he wanted sausage and instead Of asking for sausage he asked
for bangers which left me even more confused. I think this happens because different
culture develops their own language and their own slang for certain things.
Lee states in the article that, "There are no totally generous acts." Why did he state this? Do you
believe this statement is true? Why or why not?
• Because all "acts" have an element Of manipulation. There is usually something the
other person is wanting and expecting. Or even working towards receiving in the next

month or year. I agree with this completely. I have found most Of the times someone
gives me a gift they are doing it with the understanding that they are going to get
something back from me. It's a trade for something you might like and something they
might like. And for that reason, I don't completely agree with birthday gifts unless it's
from an adult to a child, parent to child, boyfriend to girlfriend, or a husband to a wife.
