Thanksgiving, most Americans celebrate Thanksgiving but not everyone celebrates it the same way as you. Grandma’s house, that’s where i always go for thanksgiving. But that doesn’t mean that everyone else who celebrate thanksgiving goes to their grandma’s house, some people don’t even leave their home. Every person has a unique way to spend their thanksgiving
Every year for me, we head to my aunt's house on my mom's side at 2 o’clock where all the food is homemade. Soon after that we go to my grandma on my dad's side were the food is a little bit worse. Other people often have Thanksgiving held at their house. The whole family comes to their house for Thanksgiving. I thought everyone had two Thanksgiving like me!
Then we go to my grandma's and me and my cousins do stuff like play outside. Some people might not even celebrate thanksgiving. Then we go inside and my dad cuts the turkey. Which some people might just eat ham during thanksgiving or something else. When we had thanksgiving when my grandpa and uncle were still alive me and my cousins would go to the basement and hang out with my grandpa. Then later at night we would hang out with my uncle. Some people might even go out to a restaurant because they probably don't want to cook. My grandma thinks the same thing after Thanksgiving. But
Most Thanksgiving holiday meals include the traditional turkey, ham and prime rib. If you are having a large dinner party, I would suggest making all three. Preparing three different main dishes can be difficult, but as I mentioned above, planning is everything. Remember, if you have a small oven, you can always cook the ham a day in advance, roast the turkey on Thanksgiving Day and save the prime rib for the barbeque grill while the turkey is cooking.
It’s the season of fall, almost winter. The leaves turn into a mix of all types of orange colors and the change of decor your mom brings to the house to advocate the time of Thanksgiving or the foods you’ve been waiting all year round to just smash your face into. That’s what I think of when Thanksgiving comes to mind! Out of all the holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, ETC; my favorite one of all would be Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time where the problems you had with your cousins,fights with your parents, and even the disconnection between your other family members, when it’s Thanksgiving day though, all those problems are left at the door step.
The crisp, cool, and cinnamon air filled the morning of Thanksgiving in 1987. Although I was only two years and eleven months old, I remember the scratchy, fuzzy, purple- footed pajamas that I was wearing that morning. After I woke up, I "helped" my mom make her famous orange- cranberry relish, got dressed in my cream sweater dotted with cherries and my navy pleated skirt, topped off with my favorite cream fuzz- warn tights, and before I knew it we were out the door to my grandmother's house. After an early dinner with my grandparents, mom, and dad, my grandfather and dad left to catch the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day football game, leaving the rest of us to find entertainment of our own.
Heavenly smells in the air, footballs on T.V, family is gathered around, and a comfortable homey feel of my grandmother’s house makes Thanksgiving one of my favorite meals of the year. I will always have memories of thanksgiving at my grandmothers. The smell that rushes your nose as you walk in to the house. So many mouthwatering smells go through the air at my grandmother’s thanksgiving. Her Thanksgiving dinner never fails to fulfill my expectations. With the whole family gathered and the dinner table full of delicious food, I can’t help but feel content.
When we got to my grandparent’s house, my dad’s side of the family was already there, and we had eggs for breakfast, and hamburgers for lunch. Then we played yard games and a bounce house. At the end of the day we had a bonfire, roasted marshmallows and made s’mores.
Every Christmas Eve when we have the party everyone brings an amazing dish and almost everything is completely gone by the end of the night. My aunt makes a ton of food and it is always so good that just the smell can make your mouth water. Also, everyone brings food and it is so hard not to sneak some food before everyone eats. My family and I go to my aunt’s house and our two families decorate enough cookies for everyone to have some. Last year I got to bring a friend and we had a lot of fun decorating cookies. Everyone loves the taste and the design of all the cookies because they are all different and delicious. We all spend time together then we eat dinner and we always leave snacks and desserts out and they are so good. We always have soft sugar cookies with frosting on them and usually we have someone bring brownies and they are so chocolatey they taste amazing and I can’t keep my hands off of them since they are so great.
Thanksgiving Day brings to the airlines of the USA and Canada much more passengers. Millions of citizens are flying to their home and back, this year airlines expect 25 million passengers around Thanksgiving holiday. According to the statistic, all these people will fly U.S. airlines worldwide from Nov. 18 to Nov. 29.
Every year around comes St.Patrick's day we always celebrate we don't go big like they do in Ireland they put on dances and plays and songs on they have fairs and have fun and eat yummy meals. My mom goes big on our decorations and the meals that's the only big things we go on, we invite over some of my friends and family over.
If you were to combine family, friends and food, there are endless possibilities that might come to mind. This to me is the ultimate meal, this is my Thanksgiving. With two freshly shot turkeys laying in front of you in the line of county potatoes, fresh garden squash, and any other garden vegetables that may come into your head. Topped off with a steaming pot of gravy at the end of the buffet. Where could you go wrong with this meal? However, to me the actual eating of the food isn't even the best part of the meal. Having thirty people that are all related and love you in the same house along with, the build up to the meal and the memories that can be taken away is what really makes this meal special. These memories don’t just wash away over time, they’re drilled into my head from years of this tradition. One specific memory of me sitting on my Aunt Sue’s lap learning how to play pitch at all hours of the night is still vivid in my mind. I remember she kept saying “patience young grasshopper,” when I’m about to make a bad move or throw the game away. To now, look back on that when I’m in my own seat and see her playing against me across the table. This is just one memory of many that are made during Thanksgiving time. Whether it's sitting around the table eating some juicy turkey drizzled with gravy. Hearing stories that I have never known about, that blow my mind that they're actually true. Going hunting with my uncle’s, my dad and brother, for a day and
After the house is properly decorated, we sit down with more leftovers and watch Elf, my sister’s favorite Christmas movie. If we have not talked about it already, this is also the time when my sister asks what she should get my parents and younger brother for Christmas. We speculate who will be at my maternal grandparents’ house for Christmas Eve and what my grandpa will have crocheted to give away to each family. Then, we talk about the schedule for Christmas day when she and my brother-in-law come to my house for gifts and breakfast. We usually eat around 10 in the morning and there is no set menu, so we go over what we want and what she should bring.
Eating- Eat together as a family. For a more magical memory, set the table and enjoy dinner at the family table together.
