CNN Radio’s Jim Roope was invited to a Filipino family Thanksgiving celebration and discovered the addition of Lechon, roasted pig, next to the turkey, stuffing and sweet potato pie.
“All [Filipino] festivities are religious in nature so we always have an offering, a Lechon at the table,” said Nora Hizon, who immigrated to the U-S 40 years ago.” “We have the turkey, but we also have the Lechon,” she said.
