The Holidays are my favorite time of year. My family celebrates Christmas. I just love the smell of cocoa and hearing the Christmas songs in the background as I do my holiday shopping. My dad is friends with a family, the Kanes. We always go to their house for a party on Christmas day. I get a little bored at the party because I am the only kid my age but I still enjoy seeing the people I have known for about seven years.
The food at that party is amazing. They always have salmon, steak and more. The desserts are my favorite. The guests can bring a dessert to the party. It’s so cool trying all of the ones that look good. I can’t wait to see all of the people, eat food and have fun with my friends and family.
I also celebrate Hanukkah. My Mom, Dad and I always light the menorah and give each other gifts. I like celebrating two different holidays because I get to spend more time with my close friends and family. I know the holidays are not about the presents but I really like getting gifts and I think everybody does. I also feel really good when I give gifts to my friends, family and sometimes people who do not have as much. That’s what the holidays are about – family and giving.
