This teen has Thanksgiving dinner with his great-grandmother for the last 6 years

It was the middle of November 2011 when a 16-year-old Michael Chong was invited to “grandma’s” Thanksgiving by his aunt. He answered her call and didn’t realize who she was — it turns out he was planning to sit down with her entire family — until he was given a white envelope with a note. “Grandma said you are going to sit with her,” the note read. “Tomorrow for Thanksgiving you are going to eat with grandma for dinner,” it said. The holiday is just a week away and his uncle Ryan found out that his 19-year-old cousin was headed to grandma’s and didn’t know how to react. According to ABC News, there’s now a special 6th year tradition at this California home — bringing a young man — who has no family of his own — to grandma’s Thanksgiving. He cooks the meals, too. “It’s been amazing to meet people — just to have them relax with me and just hang out with me and play,” said Chong. He learned to cook for himself and that Thanksgiving traditions are a lot more fun, too.
