There are many things that come to mind when I think of Thanksgiving Day traditions. Growing up in rural Oklahoma we did a lot of outdoor activities, no matter what the temperature was. We would shoot clay pigeons, saddle the horses and go for a ride, sit in the deer stand before we stuffed our faces with Thanksgiving lunch, watch Christmas movies while decorating the Christmas Tree. It didn’t matter what we did, I could always count on doing something outside, and doing it with anywhere from fifteen to fifty people. Yes, I have a very large family.
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.
There are many traditions people have during thanksgiving. That could include the food they eat, what activities they participate in, or just travelling to the same place every year. Even if people don’t celebrate Thanksgiving they can still have traditions. For some people thanksgiving is not a time to give thanks, for some people Thanksgiving is a way to get away from people, but there is a reason we have this holiday. It was created to give
At his house is my father’s side of family, I extremely enjoy their company because all of us together is very rare and only happens 3 times a year. Likewise, around the time of Thanksgiving, I gather with my step-father’s family at my great-grandmother’s, this side of my family is unquestionably large causing us to avoid gatherings on a regular basis. My Thanksgiving schedule is very chaotic, however every gathering is enjoyable and I look forward to go to all of them. This Thanksgiving will be different than previous years. My cousin, Cameron, recently enrolled in the marines.
How someone views actions taken is how they will characterize how much of a success is accomplished. A person could set a goal and strive to achieve that goal and by striving to achieve others may look at the person as a successful because they are working hard to achieve what their goal is, but the person trying to accomplish the goal may not feel like a success until they accomplish the goal. For most, it takes time and effort to be successful. Another characteristic of success is self-motivation and self-sacrifice. A person may set a goal but if they do not take any actions to reach that goal then it is not considered a success.
For example, if you believe that your personality is based on your influences by your parents, siblings or when you were a child then you believe in nurture. I agree, they are both totally different ideas, but both play important roles that makes us who we are. In doing this essay, the three elements that has influenced my life are kindness, fairness
Relationship building plays a crutial part in everyones lives. it can have a big effect on you as you grow older and can determine who you grow into. Positive relationships can take time to develop and there are several factors which can help.

That is what I get to enjoy every Christmas. A couple of years ago we started this family tradition, Christmas bingo. Around lunch, we would gather in the family room and get out the older bingo cards, the ones with the markers already on them. We would all set out our gifts we brought and set them on display for all to see. There’s an adult table and a kids table.
A relationship is the way in which two or more people, groups, countries, talk to, behave toward, and deal with each other or the "way in which two or more people or things are connected" (Merriam-Webster, 2015). Relationships are a very important thing in our lives, be it professional or just social you must maintain them and learn how to work with people. The relationships formed at university are no different, they can help you either succeed or fail in life. so of course there is a major role that they play in a persons in life. One is affected depending on how good or bad the relationship is.
My socialization was evidently steeped heavily in Jewish knowledge, rituals, and practices. In my family growing up, the candle was rushed through to make way for the daily gift. Far less ritualistic than Christmas, with much less of a lead up or readjustment phase, I found a sort of Christmas-envy to exist for me, despite growing up receiving gifts this time of year as well. Despite my family being very religious, refusing to get a tree in our living room despite my persuasion, we would go out and look at Christmas lights in the neighborhood beside ours every year on the 3rd night of Hanukkah. My father allowed it, as Hanukkah is the “festival of lights,” but begrudgingly as he found it contributed to the secularization of our
