Thanksgiving means to me that when the family gets together to eat and have conversations. We usually watch the Dallas Cowboys play. Most of time there is an abundant amount of food. We either go to more than one house or we switch houses every year. I think that Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to get together and share what you have done over the year and eat a bunch of food.
In the background I could hear a pan sizzling as my grandpa was cooking for our Thanksgiving Dinner. I could already smell how good the Thanksgiving Dinner would be. I could see our kitchen being a mess. I was happy! Everybody was having a good time, playing cards, talking to each other, like everybody should do on Thanksgiving.
In the intro of the book Hannah says “I am not hungry. I ate a big dinner at Rosemary’s. And I do not want to go to the Seder. Aaron and and I will be the only kids there and everyone will say how much we have grown even though they just saw us last months” (3-4).

He even dedicates a whole chapter dedicated to home and family. We can see that relationships are vital in their community by something as simple as inviting other people into their homes to eat dinner.

Christmas is my favorite holiday because every year ever since I could remember, our family gets together to make Tamales, one of the traditional foods in Hispanic culture. This get together is known as Tamalada Day, and we cook pork, beef, beans and make masa which is spread onto ojas which eventually are steamed and formed into the delicious food we eat on Christmas Eve. I still remember how when I was younger, family functions were dear to me because it meant getting to spend time with my elders. My grandparents were always quick to correct, discipline, or teach me when I would speak incorrectly, treat someone else rudely, or act uneducated. My great grandmother, who recently died at the age of one hundred and two, taught me wise little sayings and really showed me how to open my heart to the world and show appreciation for everything that life has brought to me.
"Giving Back" to the community Growing up in a rural, traditional community called Taylorville was a great experience. Every household knew his or her next door neighbors and who lived down the street, so strangers did not exist for them in that area. If you needed something such as flour or sugar, you could go next door and ask without any hesitation. On Sundays, the community as a whole would attend church and then go home to enjoy an afternoon dinner crafted by the mother or grandmother of the household. The children in the community were respectful and well-mannered to adults.
Every Thanksgiving my family gets together. When we are together, we always take time out to remember my great-grandmother and my grandmother, Meme and Liz. This year my family gathered at my auntie and uncle’s home. My aunt called all the family members that were coming because she needed to tell them what to bring. When we got there, we sat and watched the football game until the food was finished.
Randy Salazar because they had trouble getting to school. During this time, Mrs. Emily Salazar and Mr. Randy Salazar have never asked for money to feed or clothe children.

There are things in life that we long to do, in my case I yearned to make an American style Thanksgiving meal for my family. After twelve years in the United States our family had yet to make a turkey and do the whole Thanksgiving shebang. My longing for this feast wasn’t because of my infatuation with food; it was due to the depiction of thanksgiving in pop culture. There is something about the movies that make it seem like celebrating Thanksgiving was required and made you truly American; I wanted to be truly American. Thanksgiving 2015 was the year that I took it upon myself to go through with making thanksgiving dinner; I prepared everything in advance from googling how to make the best consistency mashed potatoes to going out and buying all my ingredients well ahead of the shopping rush around Thanksgiving Day.
