It was so cool to see a change in my mom knowing that now we are going to live eternally in Heaven after we die. Now fast forward I have gotten so close to my new adopted family and my adopted grandma and grandpa are going to take me on a trip to Branson after Christmas. I was so happy I counted down the days to Christmas already but now I am counting down the days till after Christmas. Christmas eve comes fast. Every year we went to my real grandma's house so nothing was going to change this year.
Some families gather together at a specific place every year. Some families eat certain foods…. It is very unique that we all do similar things, and also go our own ways on Thanksgiving. Usually on a Thanksgiving gathering, most people go to a certain location every year. For example, my family goes to my aunt’s church in Lafayette for every Thanksgiving.
“The families will celebrate with an evening feast and will be fast asleep when we deliver the gifts. Wrapping and labeling the gifts they will deliver Kris looked at Martha and said. I’m excited about this, how about you?” “I am too,” she said putting another present in the large cloth bag they will use to carry the gifts. Christmas morning, after the gifts were delivered, the little church is full of people wanting to give thanks. With so many excited and happy children in the congregation, showing and sharing their toys, the church is noisier than usual.

The vast cultural differences between my mother, a Canadian born and raised woman, and my father, a South African born and raised man, always became particularly prevalent around Christmas. This magical time of year holds many of the fondest childhood memories I have of my parents merging their respective cultures, traditions, and values. Every December, my mother would sing carols while decorating the Christmas tree; my father would dance, in his cultural fashion, to beat of her merry tune. Playful bickering about whether Christmas was better spent in the beauty of the snow or underneath the hot sun would arise as the two of them strung lights outside. When it was time to cook Christmas Eve dinner, my mother would insist on typical Canadian
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.
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. When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me. When I woke up Christmas morning, I was beaming with excitement, but I was still groggy like a bear waking up from hibernation.
Thanksgiving It was thanksgiving morning and little Timmy was very excited. It was his first time staying over at Grandma 's and Grandpa’s since his parents were gone on a vacation. As he got up he smelled coffee and bread coming from downstairs. His grandparents apartment was one level above the bakery that they owned. Timmy was very confused, he thought he heard Grandma say the they the bakery wasn’t going to be open since it was Thanksgiving.
Then he brought the recipe back with him. My family has been making it ever since. We would make the candy only around Christmas time as a type of little gift to give to close friends and family. My Grandma would even give it to co-workers to show a little appreciation. Most people happen to enjoy it, which is always nice to hear.
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.
Decorating for Christmas Without Wasting Energy A few weeks ago, my wife and stepson were going through our collection of holiday movies and we ended up watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. One of my favorite scenes in that movie is where Clark Griswold is standing in his front yard admiring his decorating handiwork. He must have spent days, maybe weeks, stringing all those light. He did such a beautiful job too but the moment he plugged those lights in the whole neighborhood went dark. That had to have been one heck of a power surge.
