His scatter blades were faulty, leading to a terrible fall that would keep him in hospital for a number of days. Since the accident came just a few days to Christmas Eve, it meant that he would not recover in time to deliver the gifts. To say Santa was gutted would be an understatement. He just could not stomach the idea of letting down all those kids around the country. The thought of their day being ruined because of his absence made him feel even worse, and he contemplated delivering the goods on a wheelchair.
INTRODUCTION “I’d rather see myself dead then with your family.” A mean old mister named scrooge doesn't like any holiday that is joyful. Especially this one holiday that everyone loves to celebrate called christmas. “ They owe me money and i will collect it, i will have them jailed if i have too. They owe me money and i will collect what is due me. If i could work my will every idiot who goes about with Merry Christmas on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.” In a Christmas Carol Ebenezer Scrooge showed he didn't care about anyone or anything.
His father allowed him one aesthetic subject and he’d chosen creative writing. But he’d barely get anything done. He was lacking inspiration, and writer’s block might just be the worst illness a person could ever get. The mall was crammed with erratic people running from store to store, making the whole scene look like a 20’s silent film. There was Christmas music blasting from the speakers and every note of ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ made Draco want to barf.
Buy why? You ask, because you did not follow your morning ritual. It is easy to see that rituals are historically apart of our lives as a society as a whole and as individuals in our personal lives. In “The Lottery” we see a village where everything seems to stop for this one day, this one yearly ritual. At the start of this story you get this feeling of excitement because everyone gathers and it seems like everyone looks forward to the lottery.
BA HUMBUG!!!!! Was all that Mr Scrooge said about Christmas, but that all changed one fateful night when spirits came to visit him. There are many differences between the drama and movie of “The Christmas Carol”. As a class we read the drama than watched the movie. I realized that there were several similarities and differences.
They had been using that box since they started with “the lottery's” it was a tradition every time they finished with a lottery they were going to make a new box, but they never did. The black box faded and stained in some places. The black dot represents “death” when they get the black dot it means they won the lottery. “Bill Hutchinson went over to his wife and forced the slip of paper out of her hand. It had a black spot on it…” “All right, folks.” Mr. Summers said.
I like Christmas and celebrating the Holidays with my family and friends just as much as the next guy. I can even embrace the ugly Christmas sweater .What I don?t like is the feeling of Christmas being jammed in our face before we even have a chance to finish Halloween, and start the execution of Thanksgiving. To me ?Christmas Creep ?is a personal definition of being impatient buy retailers to make up financial ground too soon and its offensive, and just not right in any way shape or form. It?s upsetting the natural order of celebration and just seems so out of place and to me it?s downright wrong. I mean three really is a crowd, Christmas please wait your turn after Halloween and Thanksgiving.
The world of Charles Dickens "If they would rather die,…they had better do it and decrease the surplus population." - Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol This is a quote from the book A Christmas Carol, said by a character named Scrooge. Scrooge was the main character and was created by Charles Dickens to basically portray what most people during that time thought of the poor and unfortunate people. Scrooge doesn’t think twice about the poor and unfortunate, and frankly doesn’t care, but one Christmas eve night the ghost of Christmas past, present, and future come to visit him and completely changes his mind on the poor and unfortunate and he ends up helping them. This is just one of many examples of how Charles Dickens shows love and compassion through

Nick describes the idea of happiness that Gatsby formed with Daisy. Ever since he lost Daisy to the war, Gatsby never recovered that idea. Because of this, Gatsby finds himself lost and confused.

However, Russians love holidays too much to give up a day of celebration, thus, until this very day Russians still meet the New Year twice according to both old and new calendars. For most Russians the Old New Year is just a great a way to prolong the New Year’s celebrations and wish all the wishes they didn’t have time for on December 31. Following the circular traditions, “on the Old New Year’s Eve TV broadcasts once again all the New Year’s programs, concerts and films, and one does not need to buy another fir-tree – the old one will do fine” (IC Russia). Russians dress up, cook a lot of food, invite guests and give each other gifts, the same way as they do on the actual New Year’s
According to the majority of Americans, the history of the United States begins with the Pilgrims and their voyage on the Mayflower. Author and history teacher James W. Loewen perfectly recreates many of these people’s childhoods in his book “Lies My History Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong” when he talks about little kids making hand turkeys and construction paper Pilgrim hats and putting on Thanksgiving plays every November (399). His books goes much deeper than simply giving the reader a sense of nostalgia for their younger years, he actually tells them everything they know, or think they know rather, is wrong. He talks about the Spanish, French, Dutch, and English settlers that arrived in the Americas
For Thanksgiving we usually celebrate it at my uncle and aunties house. Everyone also takes something to dinner for Thanksgivings. Everyone always tries to make in time and sometimes don 't get there at all. That is the part I do not like about thins tradition. After a while we all leave and we go home.
Christmas is a jolly, time for everyone to visit family, eat, and give presents as well as receive them.

Ham is more moist compared to turkey, which is dry and flavorless. But the world doesn’t all agree on one thing so most people still have turkey for Thanksgiving. Some people don’t want to kill a pig so they would rather kill a turkey or visa versa.
