I have always LOVED Thanksgiving. This wonderful holiday reminds me of how lucky I am to have an awesome family, karate, and shelter. I have an awesome family because, they take care of me when I’m sick or hurt. They also support me, like when I was in my old school someone bullied me and I told my parents so they helped support me. Lastly, they are supper nice.
I thought that my grandmother would be a perfect person to explain to me what the gift really means to her. We sat in the kitchen which was full of holiday meals, cakes, and drinks. My pen and my notebook were my best friends during this interview which lasted for more than 40 minutes. She prepared the most amazing tea which was a throwback to my childhood when I was living with Ana. Several wrapped boxes under the Christmas tree were the overture to our conversation – the gift.
For Garnet, he’s never really had either form go home. He mainly grew up in foster care, going from house to house constantly. He never really thought of these houses as his home but rather somewhere he lived for a short time. As a child, he only lived with his family for about a quarter of his life, and even that is considered minuscule due to his lack of memory retention at such a young age. Therefore, Garnet doesn’t know what a home can be.
Why is thanksgiving so important to me? Well, I personally think that Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday. The reason Thanksgiving is so important to me is because, I love when family comes over to our house and can sit down, and catch up with one another. My biggest reason Thanksgiving is so important to me is because my family coms over. We set up everything, and just wait until Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Laura, and Malik, Cloud, Scott, and Gary to come over.
I have a theory that everyone comes to our house for Thanksgiving because we make the best turkey and gravy out of my family, but that is just my theory. Nick also has family over at his house, as well as Luke. Mya however, goes to her grandma´s house for this holiday. Everyone I interviewed about food had a variety of different things on their Thanksgiving plate. Nick enjoys lamb and mashed potatoes, Luke is anxious to sink his teeth into some fresh ham, Mya is there for the pumpkin pie, and I´m there for my grandma´s cheesecake.
He honored Christmas and he did keep his word. He even gave Bop and his family a giant goose. (Dickens 34) Scrooge also went to Fred’s house and spent Christmas with him and his wife. (Dickens 35) Scrooge also gave Bob a raise. (Dickens 36) So in the end Scrooge becomes a wonderful person and learns what Christmas truly is
Throughout our entire lives, we are asked who we are. Whether it is for scholarship information, or dinner table talk with your grandparents at Christmas. When examining one 's life and he things that are involved in it, it becomes a little easier to see just exactly who we are. In the sense of owning
The reason this is my favorite movie is that it’s a family tradition. We do it every single Christmas. Except for this past year, someone crashed into a transformer resulting in us having no electricity so we couldn’t watch it. Something felt was missing that day it’s just didn’t feel right. That’s why “The Christmas Story” is an important part of my cultural identity Now that I realize I do have a culture because of my swim goggles, my mother 's biscuits and my favorite movie “The Christmas Story” it helps me with the fact that I can further understand myself.
As time and age inch around the corner, the items that are gathered throughout the years become memorabilia. Many of those items are valued less because there was not much love that went into making them. However, my parents are true reminders that homemade gifts are greater than any store-bought gift. Since I was a baby, Christmas has been a magical time of year for my family. There were red and green lights glimmering around the house, family members smiling, and mounds of gifts underneath the tree just waiting to be ripped open by my little hands.
