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.
Sometimes it made her cry. They treat her that way because the only friend she has is a seven year old boy who can’t help her.. People make her cry but she is a kind and sweet person. She gives the little boy a dime every Saturday. She bakes fruitcakes for Christmas and gives them to people who she
The hardships of an American family as seen in Raymond Carvers text, "A Small, Good Thing", similar to "Cathedral", show the importance of building a relationship with someone who understands struggle. The couple has a young son and prepare to celebrate his birthday by buying a special cake. When Scotty is unexpectedly hit by a car, the couple is blindsided and does not know what to do. They stay by his side constantly, seeking answers and unintentionally pushing each other away. "For the first time, she felt they were together in it...she hadn 't let Howard into it though he was there and needed all along" (Carver, 1983, p. 4).
From this example we can assume that it is that time into the season when it is cold and some people use their stoves to keep warm. The way Truman Capote, the author, described the stove looking like a glowing lighted pumpkin, really sets the mood because that is when the main characters start to bake fruit cakes for their friends, not necessarily their neighbor friends but the for the people they had met, such as people who had struck
Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory," an autobiographical account of an experience from the past, focuses on his fond memories of Christmases. With "his friend," an elderly cousin named Sook Faulk, Truman made fruitcakes for people who had been charitable to them throughout the year. Imagery is writing where the five senses are evoked, but not all at once. The five senses are sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.

Something I enjoyed doing, was good at doing and something I was taught all my life. Life was perfect. We had ample money, a home, 3 vehicles, food, respect, and I was going to start college again to finish for my nursing degree. September 17th, 2013 our world came crashing down. I was making cake pops with my younger two sons, and I heard a knock at the door.

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 Cratchit family proves that wrong. This family was impoverished and was most definitely not as rich as Mr. Scrooge when it came to money. Where they were rich, though, was in their hearts. All members of the family were always generous to one another and never complained about their inadequacies in money. Even at Christmas, when they had scant bits of food on their table, they all had a wonderful time and were glad to be able to spend time with those they love.
There is nothing different about “Christmas” tamales, other than they are made for Christmas. However, because the preparation is so time and labor intensive, tamales have become associated more with the Christmas holidays and special occasions. Perhaps because these are times that family and friends come together and thus can work together to prepare the masa and to make the sauces and meats. The kitchen is converted into an assembly line to wrap the tamales before steaming them in large pots on the stove. The tamale making process takes all day and preparations often start one or two days prior.

One Winter morning, when I was off of work and spending time with the family by decorating the house for Christmas. My two daughters, Elizabeth who is fifteen and Maria who is ten felt that the Winter season was full of life and glamour. My wife Donna was making cookies with the whole chocolate scent filling the whole house. Elizabeth went outside in our shed to get out Christmas lights. Elizabeth asked me, “Dad, did you always help out with the lights?” I replied,” Like Grandpop Rob, we always make the house luxurious and bright with the Christmas lights.” Elizabeth and I finished putting the lights up and then we put the decorations from my parents’ house outside.
Sautéed apples, homemade maple syrup caramel, cinnamon buttercream, and three layers of carrot cake. There is none left.” John Zoetjes shared about a not-so-classic but certainly exciting holiday event “I woke up Thanksgiving morning and went pheasant hunting with friends and family.” August Will shared the good times she had with her family over the vacation: “Over Thanksgiving I was able to spend time with my family and that is something to be thankful for. I told them about Blair and all of the things that I have done since school started. I am very blessed to have a wonderful family both at home and at Blair. In addition to spending time with my family I also ate a lot of good food.” It’s always wonderful to be able to share stories from the Blair Community, so be on the lookout for future Community Storytelling Projects, and share your
Stepping into the parlor was like a blast from the past; I was instantly hypnotized by the artisans making the ice cream from scratch. Every dessert was catching my eye, I specifically could not wait until I was devouring a mint chocolate chip sundae. While we were lingering for the check, Sierra’s grandparents were reminiscing about when they used to go on date nights to Fentons every weekend. Immediately, I was able to grasp the nature of important Fentons was to her family. I felt incredibly sentimental.
