Thanksgiving isn’t just a rudimentary holiday to my family and me. It means much more to us. Every Thanksgiving something new and exciting takes place, creating more memories for us to cherish. Thanksgiving is full of traditions that have carried on for many years. My family is very blessed with everything we possess, during Thanksgiving is time for us to recognize those things and thank God for allowing us to have them.
The event I volunteer was at Scaregrove. I was helping out with the admission in the late evening shift. Scare grove is an annual event and is the most atmospheric Halloween event around, it is popular for older kids and teens for its frightening haunted house. There’s haunted house, jumpy house, live music and magic shows, carnivals rides and games throughout the wood, and crafts. Every year, this time around San Francisco Recreation & Parks have this Halloween event to celebrate this once a year holiday with the community.
With the internet forever growing, the infinite possibilities for creating the ultimate Halloween and finding that impeccable costume to purchase that goes above and beyond is out there. An enjoyable experience is having family themed costumes and with the year there are costumes characters that are as popular the movie or show they came from but then you have the same costume characters that are popular no matter what year it is or if they have just released a new movie or show. I have seen a family of 7 once have a Jim Carey theme for their Halloween costumes. Each child had their own costume from one of his movies; such as The Mask, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, and The Grinch to name a few. My family has decided on a Transformer theme for our Halloween costumes.
Every year on the same day, everyone has a way to spend time in addition to honoring their veterans. My family spends time together and honor our veteran. My parents would always buy me cake and invite my family members who live in Idaho. I would always have a great time with them as we eat cake and open presents. When I spend time with my family and having fun, I think of how lucky I am to have my Grandpa.
That’s what I love about holiday music because it’s so happy and bubbly that it makes me in a good mood because the holiday songs are usually make me excited for that holiday.” Jayde is clearly a music gal and would do anything to listen to it but let’s see her perspective on Halloween music. “Halloween music is great I could listen to it all day, but I would probably listen mainly to all of the songs from the movie ‘Hocus Pocus’, because it is my all-time favorite Halloween
Another Christmas, another strange and exciting place filled with culture and buzzing with activity. New people, new sights, new foods and smells, an old tradition of a family holiday blending seamlessly with a new experience. Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. My parents had been scrimping and saving, working and slaving just to afford this week of relaxation and family bonding, as they do every year. My sister and I lay sprawled on plastic white chairs covered with
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? 41.8% of teenagers say the most special moments in life come when they are with their friends and hanging out with other people so that means that I should be going to the party so I can have some of the best times of my life in my high school life.

Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
My favorite holiday is Halloween, it almost became the year’s most popular festival. Many people have great enthusiasm to celebrating this festival. Every fall, people pick large orange pumpkins with curved grimaces and put a burning candle inside. They are called “jack-o’-lanterns”, which means “jack of the lantern,” but the most excited are the kids. The kids put on their costumes to look like curtain cartoon hero.
Everyone would gather around, eat lots of food with family and friends, decorating Christmas trees, and exchanging gifts. It used to about rejoicing the upcoming year, eating fresh meat, and drinking the finally ready-made wine and beer that was fermenting during the year. This was the one day of the year in which parents could spoil their kids, without “actually spoiling” them. Christmas has been celebrated to this day in every part of the world. In the US, we decorate trees, put up christmas lights in and outside our homes, gather together as a family, and possibly set our cookies and milk for Santa.

It was my birthday, November 1, and the first day after Halloween break. I happily accepted birthday wishes from everyone, even students I did not know. I was finally being recognized by the the popular students. As strange as I acted when I talked animatedly about my likes and dislikes, I was decently normal when it came to what made me, me. I loved K-Pop, planned to be a choreographer, and was getting serious about yearbook.
