This is My Typical Way of Spending the Holidays.
Different individuals view holidays in various ways and also celebrate it in different ways. 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. During holidays we enjoy spending time with our families. For food and tradition this anomaly the same and are done in the same way during vacation. We enjoy the tradition that comes with Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday. During holidays food is prepared the same way maintaining is taste and smell and the house is decorated in the same manner. During holidays we get to watch the Thanksgiving parade in our pajamas and eat dinner early so that we may have a second helping. 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. This is normally accompanied with the old fashioned cinnamon. A couple of people enjoy having the same tradition that they used to have during their childhood and continue to pass it on from generation to generation. The showstopper starts at Christmas Eve. Some people decide to do a variety of menus during this time. While at the same time others opt to do what they call the never-ending snacks session.
Some of the activities that are involved during this festive season include spreading the reindeer food outside. It is one of those traditional activities that have been passed on from my mother to me and now is being passed on to my children. What follows is a storytelling session about the reindeer. During Christmas Eve each one of us was allowed to open one gift. This reduced the suspense and the eagerness of opening presents during Christmas day.
Christmas morning is the mother of all days when it comes to the festive season. During this time my mum prepares a special breakfast for us and is served while we are in our pajamas. The whole day is spent opening presents and watching Christmas stories. During this day we end up having dinner at my brother’s house and enjoy my sister-in-law nice cooking. Year in year out the menu is normally similar with a few adjustments. The day is finished with peppermint tea while we gather together as we compare and enjoy opening our gifts. This is simply how I normally spend my holidays with the same routine and the same tradition.
