For Christmas my family usually comes to my house. We usually make dinner and everyone makes and brings something to the dinner. We usually make tamales for Christmas or menudo. This year we made tamales. At midnight we like to open our presents. After we open our presents we like to say thank you to everyone who gave us something this year. What I don 't like about this tradition is that sometimes people leave early and we don 't get to open
Every year my family decides what to do for the holidays and where to go. Most of the time I have no say in it because my uncles insist on visiting or they invite us over. It doesn’t help that all of my family lives in Texas, California, and Mexico. This year has been the first time that we have spent Christmas and New Years here at home with just my family in a long time. Last year we took a long trip to Chihuahua, Mexico which is the biggest part/state of Mexico where my mother is from. This would be my fourth time visiting Mexico.

What does Thanksgiving mean? Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated to cherish and celebrate everything that you are thankful for, but for some people it may be different. Everyone has a different meaning for Thanksgiving. Some just see Thanksgiving Day as a time to stuff their faces with food for no reason, I am one of those people.

“Yee-haw,” mimics Fred as I turn on 97.3, and House Party comes on. He honestly makes me want to curl in a ball and die when he tries to make fun of my music with his lame attempts especially when he knows not to talk to me.
The majority of my friends love Thanksgiving, and I love it, too! I just love it not so much for the food or because you’re with family; all of those things are nice too. Me and my family love Thanksgiving because of Black Friday Shopping. Oh sure we cook food and say a prayer together and all of that good stuff, but while we do all of those nice things we look at all the sales papers. We write several lists down of the items everyone wants buy for the sales. We map out where everyone will go and what items everyone will be responsible for. This is a family effort; mainly because this is our Christmas shopping together. Our ritual is everyone cook whatever dish they plan on cooking, we pray, we eat,, and after doing all of that we look at sales

The frosty winter air is opening the door for another heavenly Christmas. A maelstrom of love hits every soul, leaving a magical touch of joy and faith. What is the best thing to do in this season? Watch Christmas movies. Two holiday films that will leave something to talk about are A Christmas Carol, a movie adapted to the book by Charles Dickens, and Miracle on 34th Street, a John Hughes production. Both these movies are classics. A Christmas Carol narrates the story about a stingy, old man, by the name of Ezeber Scrooge, who doesn 't believe in Christmas, and his path to becoming a believer. In Miracle on 34th Street, we can watch a young girl who was taught not to believe in Christmas spirits and traditions, like Santa Claus. This girl is shown throughout the movie why she should have faith. Even if the main topic of both movies is Christmas, one is a more of a “scary” type, while the other one a more family appropriate film. They both leave a great message to reflect on, and will make the holidays an even better time. Miracle on 34th Street and A Christmas Carol belong from the same Christmas tree, but are each a particular Christmas ornament.
It is Christmas time! A time where families come from all around the world. I mean from all around the world from Mexico to Texas. I heard that the Christmas carol is the best movie to watch on Christmas. The Christmas carol is about the old guy that does not like Christmas, but his partner said that three Ghosts are going to meet him. one ghost will be past, present , and future. The future ghost is what I think that it was the most influential ghost.
