My personal favorite is volunteering at the animal shelter just being with all the dogs and cats is just amazing. It gives me a warm feeling knowing the animals have found a good home. On sundays we usually give out food to the people who come to mass but if we need money for the youth group we make bake sales or sell other types of foods that people will enjoy . On mother's day and father's day the church members plan a feast for all the families and they celebrate those special moments with them this event is on the closest sunday to
This past week was Thanksgiving of 2016. My family hosts Thanksgiving every year and whoever is able to come that year is more than welcome. This year, we had a lot of people come over including significant others. Everyone arrived at my house approximately two o’clock. I always say the more people the better.
For the most part, the individuals in my family are on top of our rituals. Every year between Black Friday and Christmas time my family and I go to different malls to seek out all of the great discounts. The holidays always have a unique spot in our hearts because we know this is the time of year we can be able to be all together and enjoy the special days together. There are certain ways families celebrate their own rituals and the way that my family and I highlight every holiday (Galvin 119). Lately, this ritual has been slowly dying, but I hope we can have this interest in the future when I have a family on my
It is not just share our victories and struggles, however we find strength and hope. Besides that, different generations brings their significance and purpose to the wealth of their legacy. They brought their old photos and the meaningful knick-knacks, the prayer of Thanksgiving before enjoy their meals are form a legacy in Thanksgiving family. In the thanksgiving day, we appreciate all the gifts that had present in our life, such as family, friends and health). So, we can provide our resources to helps others.
I visit my grandparents and cousins over Christmas break also. Spending time with family and friends is really important to me. Unlike Scrooge, I care for my loved ones. In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge views himself going to a Christmas party hosted by his old boss, Mr. Fezziwig. “In they all came, one after another; some shyly, some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly, some pushing, some pulling; in they all came, anyhow and everyhow” (Dickens 41).
3. Give a deserving family a store gift card to help fund their Thanksgiving dinner.

Every single family has their share of problems.
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.

Every Christmas, we watch our favorite our favorite Christmas cartoons. Whenever I say mom I mean my step mom, but she is the only mother figure I have known. She’s great, though. She helps me with a lot and gives me courage. My sister is very amazing.
The holidays I have celebrated since I was born have been Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. I celebrated these because I grew up in a primarily christen household, and to quote my dad “they were fun traditions our parents did with us.” Not much else to look into. Each year we would run down stairs, be told which gifts where from Santa, they were in a separate pile, and which were from Mom and Dad. For Easter we would go to my aunt 's house and hunt for eggs in her yard. Lastly our Thanksgivings where nothing special just the whole family together to fatten ourselves up.
The snow had the community working on something together. I finally got to play in the snow and use that new sled. Later that day, my father huddled the family up to have a little Sunday service in our house. The storm really made us as a family closer. Not only did we share this experience together, but my parent really took advantage of this time we had and used it as a teaching
Story time was always something to look forward to when going over to my grandparents house. Every time my younger brother and I visited my grandparents, we were in for a treat as my grandpa told us stories of his time during WW2, and even going back further to the Enlightenment Period, the crusades, explorations, etc. “I wonder what grandpa is going to tell us today.” Joshua, my younger brother said- anticipation embedded on his face. After a couple of minutes driving we reached our destination - a brightly yellow painted house, with a big front yard that houses so many family of flowers, and a flag pole with the flag of the United States proudly sailing in the air. Entering my grandparents house made my brother and I even more anxious,
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.
Thousands of people are waiting. Thousands of people are wearing jerseys and talking about their favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers. My family was part of the thousands on August 8, 2015. We had joined one of the many parties where people were excitedly waiting for Family Night at the Green Bay Packers Stadium. I really didn’t care about football at all, but I was still excited to go and watch with my family.
In the morning, the Colonel asks them if they would like to go to his house for thanksgiving, so they they go. After they all eat the meal the Colonel’s mom makes then, Alaska and Miles return to the campus for the remainder of the break. When everyone comes back they all look forward to christmas break, which is right around the corner. Eventually everyone leaves for christmas break to go visit their families, even Alaska. When everyone comes back from the time with their family, they are all happy.
I am just about to have the best Thanksgiving holiday dinner ever. My nearest best friend, geographically, will be here. She and her family are quiet speaking and kind in every way, we love the spirit they bring with them. The other guests, a plump man; boisterous, and outgoing, brought his two young men with him, my sons. I refer to them as my sons because I have known them their whole lives and they need a kind, loving mother.
