day 23

I know Thanksgiving is over, but I have to got to day 30.

Today I am thankful for Traditions.

Traditions are things that we always, do that really make us who we are. Traditions are a very important part of the holidays. Its a tradition that we go to family’s house on a certain day in November an eat a bird until our bellies explode. It’s a traditoin that we look at adds of toys and electronics after dinner. It’s a tradition that we hang out at Grandma’s house until the sun dissappears on this certain November night. It’s a tradition that on the day so called “Black Friday” we put up a big fake tree in our basement, and decorate it with shiney objects that hang on strings, and tiney lights that we never seem to have enough of. It’s a tradition that we listen to the sounds of the Holidays through our little speakers until a special day in December comes around. It’s a tradition that we go to Grandma’s house on the night before that sepcial day in December and exchange things wrapped in paper and ribbons. It is a tradition that we walk through the park and look at dispays of animals, and airplanes glowing in lights. It is a tradition that I make a fort with my siblings, and we sleep in it this night. It is a tradition that we wake up on this special December morning, and sneak upstairs to wake up our parents. It is a tradition that we offer a prayer of thanks to our Father in Heaven before we head down stairs. It’s a tradition that our parents make all of us use the bathroom at this time. {okay….maybe that part isn’t so much a tradition.} It is a tradition that we run downstairs and find our red socks, and emptie the contents of candie, and toys in a pile. It is a tradition that we go youngest to oldest, and rip open boxes that a large old man with a white beard brought us. It is a tradition that afer we open all these boxes we head to Grandma’s house to open more boxes. It is a tradition that we eat food, and hang out with family all day. It is a tradition that on the day before the new year we spend time with the family again. It is a tradition that we exchange silly presents in a game. It is a tradition that we count down until midnight from 10 to 1, and cheer when it is all done.

The Holidays are a tradition. What traditions make your holidays special?
