Until that times comes around the sound of laughter, love, and excitement rings through out every corner of the walls. While everyone is catching up with the latest gossip and catches up with each family member the smell of the tamales cooking fills up the entire house. My grandma then makes her warm atole and cold salsa to go with the warm delicious tamales. All the parents talk, the younger kids play and we await the sweet four word sentence when my grandmother screams out “Ya estan los tamales!!” As soon as everyone hears that, everyone rushes to the kitchen to grab a plate trying to be the first one their to grab the biggest tamale possible.
There were just a few spots of the cookie sheet that were visible. I just decided to wait for them to cool so I could put them on a plate and figure out what to do with them. I heard the garage door open, so I prepared my snickerdoodles on a plate so my mom could figure out what happened. “Hi, Paige, we’re home!”
We all gathered and sat around the dinner table. The hot soup sat in the middle of the table steaming hot with its distinct scent that I get to smell every year. While pouring me a bowl of soup my dad reminded me why on New Year’s Day we eat Soup Joumou. “Remember,” he said, “Haiti became a free country on January 1st, 1804, before that, while blacks and slaves worked hard over a hot stove to prepare Soup Joumou for their masters, they were not allowed to drink this soup in Haiti. It was a delicacy, it was reserved for the privileged French slave masters.

Me, being the 11 year old I am, decide to load my plate up. I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat all of what I had grabbed, but I still grabbed it all because I wanted to make sure I had enough energy for gymnastics. After I ate half of what was on my plate, I go outside and practice cartwheels. My mother was in gymnastics in
Thanksgiving is time to be thankful for what you have been blessed with and to thank others and God. My family’s tradition occurs at lunch time and everyone has to bring something. Grandma Jo prepares the turkey, mash potatoes, home-made gravy, seasoned green beans, and fresh corn. She also prepares homemade biscuits, and fatback, which is my favorite. I love the texture and the taste.
Christmas is my favorite holiday because every year ever since I could remember, our family gets together to make Tamales, one of the traditional foods in Hispanic culture. This get together is known as Tamalada Day, and we cook pork, beef, beans and make masa which is spread onto ojas which eventually are steamed and formed into the delicious food we eat on Christmas Eve. I still remember how when I was younger, family functions were dear to me because it meant getting to spend time with my elders. My grandparents were always quick to correct, discipline, or teach me when I would speak incorrectly, treat someone else rudely, or act uneducated. My great grandmother, who recently died at the age of one hundred and two, taught me wise little sayings and really showed me how to open my heart to the world and show appreciation for everything that life has brought to me.

After everything is said and done you still haven’t eaten the pumpkin pie. My sister Kara finally passes you a piece of pie. You then stuff yourself full of it and only feel satisfaction. It feels like you have never tasted pie before and it is wonderful. Waiting to eat is worth it.
The food that tasted the best in my opinion, was the ultimate bacon brisket bomb. In my mind, this brisket could surpass a steak from a five star restaurant. For the children, going to the fair primarily revolves around the rides or
