Each year more and more people are focusing on getting the best gift rather than what the day is truly about, celebrating Jesus’ birthday. The third difference is where each holiday is celebrated. Thanksgiving is only celebrated in the North American culture. On the contrary, Christmas is celebrated internationally, because it is a religious holiday. The two holidays might seem similar, but they are actually very different in more ways than
The Pilgrims wanted Thanksgiving to a time for, “Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and reflect” (Auerbach). Thanksgiving was created to be a time for Americans to raise spirits and be with their families. It was also a time for people to give thanks and have a stress free night, but Black Friday takes people away and makes them stressed. With Black Friday happening every Thanksgiving, millions of people are away from their families. Another reason opposers don’t like Black Friday is because stores are opening up too early.
Americans started to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money In the late 1800s Americans wanted to mold Halloween into a holiday more about community and neighborly get-togethers than about ghosts, pranks, and witchcraft At the turn of the century, Halloween parties for both children and adults became the most common way to celebrate the day. By the 1920s and 1930s, Halloween had become a community-centered holiday, with parades and town-wide parties as the featured entertainment. Between 1920 and 1950, the centuries-old practice of trick-or-treating was also revived. Trick-or-treating was a relatively inexpensive way for an entire community to share the Halloween celebration. In theory, families could also prevent tricks being played on them by providing the neighborhood children with small treats.
Every year, this time around San Francisco Recreation & Parks have this Halloween event to celebrate this once a year holiday with the community. The admission area where I was helping out is the first place that everybody needs to go to pay in order to get in to the event. I assisted people in the line and making sure they pay before letting them in the event. I see a lot of family with their kids
Wearing big elaborate costumes is one of the big traditions when they are celebrating Mardi Gras as a parade. Some people that do not wear costumes wear large green, purple, or dresses and beaded necklaces. Some other traditions are having picnics, floats and; to go with these things they have traditional music for the celebrations. At the picnics they hear foods that do not contain meat and they eat waffles to celebrate if they are at home and not at a parade or a party. They also celebrate by eating traditional foods like kings cake.
The assisted living houses have facilities for people going out together and having social occasions. The people are allowed to invite their families to come for the outings and social gatherings because there is fun and the people are allowed to contribute towards the program. Most public holidays are usually celebrated with loved ones around them. There
Holidays celebrate an area’s culture and/or the day(s) it commemorates with various festivities and traditions. In Theodore Geisel’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the light-hearted denizens of Who-Ville are preparing to celebrate Christmas. For the Whos, it is a time of fun and merryness, in which they sing and play with one another. This is a time of camaraderie and fellowship between everyone in the town. Apart from this is the antagonist, the Grinch, who dreads the holiday along with the singing, feasting, and other festive activities that the holiday inspires.
Pathos: When most of us were little we all when to each other's birthdays parties mainly on the weekend but sometimes we would go on the weekdays. So why should it change now? We are more grown up so why not allow us to go to parties now when we can make better decisions than we did when we were little kids and back then we didn't even know the difference between chocolate and dirt because both were edible when we were little. The party would let me relax and help me take a break so when I come back to work I would be able to focus more and not be stressed the whole night. Logos: What the big deal about going to a party on a school day it should be fine as long as I come back early and do not stay for too long?
Thanksgiving is a great holiday. One of the most unique things I find about Thanksgiving is that many families get together on this holiday, but they all do not do the same things. Some things might be the same, but not all. Each family has their own way of doing stuff on Thanksgiving. Some families gather together at a specific place every year.
