In 2008, right after Christmas my family had the special experience to go to the Cotton bowl for the Missouri Tigers football game. The Cotton Bowl is held in Dallas, Texas, back then Jerry's world (Dallas Cowboys stadium) was in the process of being built, so the big Mega scoreboard wasn’t there. My whole family came down to Columbia on Christmas Eve and we sang our Christmas songs together and celebrated Christmas together in my grandparents house. There was a bunch of us in that house, I remember walking down the stairs one morning and all my older cousins were back in the corner of the basement and they were all sleeping together in that space, I would crack up every time I saw that. This time after Christmas instead of all going back
On November 11 of every year, we have a day to celebrate our veterans. For many people, it is a day to honor our veterans in addition to thank them for what they done for our country. For me, it feels much more than just honoring them. There are three reasons why Veterans Day means more to me; my Grandpa, family history, and my birthday. My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family.

My grandfather was dead long before I was born. I had zero memory of him, but Qingming festival always reminded me that he was an important part of my family. Qingming festival is one of the prominent Chinese traditions.

Seems Punxsutawney Phil may have been right after all and Mother Nature has once again blanketed our area with snow and reminding us just how beautiful New England is
It was Thanksgiving Day on November 27, 2014. My family and I had just arrived at my great-aunt’s opulent lake-side house for Thanksgiving dinner. As soon as we walked through the grand wooden door, my nostrils inhaled a myriad of splendid aromas, and I felt as if nothing could ruin this wonderful (food-filled) day. I quickly realized the house was packed to the brim with many other obnoxious relatives and family friends, yet my mood did not turn sour. As the evening continued, I had come to the realization that I was not feeling all that well, but I was determined to make it through to dinnertime.

Thanksgiving a time where people sit around the table and be thankful for the things they have. However, many people know of how it became a holiday, but people don’t know is who started this holiday. The man who had started Thanksgiving was named William Bradford; It started from his marriage ceremony in the New World where the (Johnson) Wampanoags Native Americans (Whitehurst and Ruffin 18) brought over turkeys and deer to feast on (Johnson).
