The second holiday that my family celebrates in this season is Christmas . This is definitely my favorite for sure.
Every Christmas Eve my parents would let my brother and I open up one gift a year. Each year we would somehow always pick the box that had pijamas in it. We would watch my parents faces as we grabbed the box to see if they were looking to say that that’s the big gift this year. I think they were just trying to trick us so that the gift big gift wasn’t spoiled
Christmas morning is where all the fun really happens. Every year my family holds a “christmas brunch”. It’s a restaurant theme so me and my brother are the waiters and everyone else are the “customers”. My mom and dad stay in the kitchen cooking breakfast food for everyone while my brother and I go around taking orders.
Now that I’m am a bit older this tradition is definitely something I really look forward to. Without the Christmas brunch it wouldn’t feel any different than a regular day.
“The food is my favorite part”, said Senior Briana Hicks
“Gifts aren’t that big of a deal to me anymore. It’s mainly the food. ” , said Senior Jonathan Spencer
It seems to be that for different families, Christmas isn’t always revolved around just religion but whatever small things that happen every year to make it special.
