Did you know the average person eats 7,000 calories on Christmas? I don’t know about you but I feel like I eat more than double that. At my Christmas dinner we don’t actually eat it on Christmas day, but whenever all of my family can come in. I have family all over the U.S. Some are on the west coast in Washington, while others are on the other side in Georgia. I also have family in Kansas and Minnesota, they aren’t as far and can stay a little longer than everyone else. When this happens I am glad because they usually always know what to do when they day gets boring. My family consists of 15 grandchildren so you can imagine how loud it is there. There are always kids screaming and running around so there is never really a quiet moment. On…show more content…
With Christmas come many treats, which are are so good. There could be pie, cookies, cake, ice cream, or chocolates. At my Christmas dinner we have all of those things. My grandma makes a lot of different pies. She has a cherry tree in her yard so she makes lots of cherry pies. Along with the cherry she makes apple, blueberry, rhubarb, and many more. One time she made a blueberry and grape pie, I know it doesn’t that good, but trust me, it tastes amazing. With these pies you always have to have ice cream. Without the ice cream the pie is just dry and boring. Cookies are another favorite at my Christmas dinners. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate star peanut butter cookies are always available. It’s a good thing they are, because these taste amazing. Chocolate is also something that is readily available. Usually they are homemade chocolates, so the flavors are usually peanut butter or coconut. Don’t let the shortage of flavors fool you though because these little candies are to die for. There are distinct ways to tell the two apart. Coconut ones will have a more bumpy surface, while the peanut butter ones will be more smooth like. These are great things to eat if you’re craving a snack or just eating because you’re bored. We don’t actually make the chocolate though. My grandma goes to church. At this church there is a lady who makes chocolate every year at around Christmas time.

I sometimes wonder why I was so bummed out about it, since I would rather just get clothes for Christmas now. Then I realize at the time I was 13 years old, and just learning about gaming consoles. In 2013 the PS4 came out a month before Christmas. The teenager in me said that’s all I could ever want. So you can imagine my disappointment when I opened my presents and I all I saw were socks and sweatshirts. Now that I think about it I don’t know what I was thinking, because a gaming console would have been a lot heavier than a box of clothes, so I don’t really know why I was so dissapointed. I probably should have noticed right away, but I guess I just let my excitement overwhelm me. For this last Christmas I got a gift card to American Eagle, a couple of shirts, a jacket, and a whole lot of candy so you can imagine my excitement. At my grandma's the adults don’t really get each other gifts. I mean my grandma usually gets everyone a household essential like a pot and pan set or a bath towel set, but that’s about it. Instead all the guys get a “guy gift’ under $25 and the girls do the same. Then they all draw numbers and whoever gets a one goes first and so on. After every present has been opened, they are all fair game. If you want that tool set you’ve had your eyes on, and someone has it you can go steal it from them. If your gift gets stolen you have to steal something else. The game end when every gift has been stolen
