This is My Typical Way of Spending the Holidays.
The definition of holidays is different to everyone and how it is celebrated is also different. Even though the way we celebrate our holidays may be different there are certain characteristics that are similar. The similar characteristics that we share during holidays involve family, food, and tradition. Families spend most of their times together during the holiday season. When it comes to food and tradition we find ourselves doing the same recipes and doing the same things during holidays. We like the addiction that comes with doing things the same way during Thanksgiving and during Christmas. We find ourselves having the same tastes, smells and same decoration during this time. Another interesting aspect of holidays is the fact that the Thanksgiving parade is washed in our pajamas in dinner served at the same time to allow for food to digest slowly. Most individuals passed through this tradition ever since they were children until now that they’re grownups.
For some of us Christmas holiday can never be complete without a pumpkin spice candle. To a majority, they like to accompany this pumpkin spice candle burning with the old fashioned cinnamon to bring some flavor smell. To a majority of us we maintain the same tradition in terms of decoration that happened with our mothers and we pass it on to our children. The primary event starts on Christmas Eve. Some individual soft to cook a variety of foods during Christmas Eve. While others do the cooking the rest do snacks throughout during Christmas Eve.
Some of the activities that are involved during this festive season include spreading the reindeer food outside. This is an activity that has been passed on from generation to generation came from my mother to me and now am passing it on to my children. This activity is accompanied by a storytelling session about the reindeer. During Christmas Eve each one of us was allowed to open one gift. This helped to reduce the tension that is normally accompanied by the opening of presents during Christmas day.
Christmas morning is the long-awaited day but people wait for during the festive season. The day is reflected in a special breakfast from my mother and with us spending the whole day in our pajamas. The entire day is spent unleashing the wrapped presents and watching Christmas stories throughout. The fact that my sister in law is a great cook we end up having dinner on Christmas day at my brother’s house. The menu is normally the same with one or two changes. Christmas day normally ends with peppermint tea served to all of us while we continue chatting and telling stories as we open up our presents. This is how my Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are spent with very little adjustments.
