Laufafa Lagavale begins cooking at daybreak in the detached Lagavale family cookhouse, under the glow of a single light bulb in preparation for the feast celebrating White Sunday, which is celebrated on the second Sunday of October each year. Traditionally on this holiday, the children receive new clothes and gifts, and festive games are played. Most attend church services and then gather for huge family feasts that feature foods like pork, taro, and coconuts. Western Samoa. Published in Material World, page 173.
