When it comes to holidays we all have our different opinions and how we want to celebrate our holidays. 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. For food and tradition this anomaly the same and are done in the same way during vacation. We love the routine that is accompanied with thanksgiving and Christmas vacation. Over the holidays we maintain the tradition of the tastes, smells, and decoration. 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. To a majority, they like to accompany this pumpkin spice candle burning with the old fashioned cinnamon to bring some flavor smell. 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 main event is normally during the Christmas Eve. Couple of people decides to do a number of recipes during this time. While at the same time others opt to do what they call the never-ending snacks session.
Spreading the reindeer food outside is one of the activities that we indulge in during the Christmas Eve. It is one of those old activities that we have passed on to our kids and we used to do during our childhood. 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 long-awaited day but people wait for during the festive season. During this time my mum prepares a special breakfast for us and is served while we are in our pajamas. The entire day is spent unleashing the wrapped presents and watching Christmas stories throughout. 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 how my Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are spent with very little adjustments.
