Celebrating christmas by William
my favorite holiday is christmas! I celebrate christmas by going outside and playing with snow, decorating a christmas tree and getting presents from my mom, my dad and from santa. I hope I get to do these things this year.
I decorate a christmas tree with christmas light bulbs, nutcrackers, and the star for the top.
but sometimes i play the nutcrackers with my older brother. I always want to put the star on the top of the christmas tree. our christmas tree looks so nice.
I really like going outside and playing with the snow because it’s really fun. when you go outside and play with snow, you could play now-ball-fight with your friends. you could also lay down and make and angel. I hope we go to the mountains to play in the snow this christmas.

Celebrating the new year by christina
I know everyone celebrates new years, but mine is a little different. my family celebrates with korean things. we celebrate by going to granma’s home, eating rice cake soup, and going to granpa’s cemetery. i love to do these things on new years day.
my busiest thing is going to grandma’s home. we have to pack foods, clothes, and other things. since we have 5 family members, o we have to reat a lot of times. our family has a lot of members, when we go to grandma’s my cousins, uncles, and other people are already there. it’s a bother to have so many people, but i love to go.
in korea on new year’s, every family eats rice cake soup. that’s one of my favorite foods. we say if you eat rice cake soup on new years you turn older. my sister always eats that a lot because she wants to turn older than me. after we eat that we say “happy new years!” to the adults, and they give children money. uncles say “happy new years!” to grandma and grandma gives uncles the money. that’s how we do it at new years!
our big family always goes to my granpa’s cemetery. it’s snowy so we have to be careful to drive. sometimes we race to grandpa’s cemetery with cars with my cousins and uncles. when we arrive there we have to find my granpa’s cemetery. in korea, there is snow so we could see the wonderful scene. my grandpa’s cemetery is in a very high place, so we can look down on a beautiful scene. we say “happy new year grandpa.” i feel dad sometimes. i love to go to grandpa’s cemetery.
i celebrate new years by going to grandma’s, eating rice cake soup, and going to grandpa’s cemetery. i love to do these things on new years, It’s how koreans celebrate their new years. i hope you can have a great new year! What’s your holiday?
chanukah by izzy
Eight days of chanukah, eight presents, eight candles, one menorah and one shama’sh (the candle that lights the others). Tonight is the first night of chanukah.
Long ago the maccabees were at war with the greeks for three years. one night the maccabees went to a temple. they found a little bit of oil. they thought it would only last one day, but it lasted for eight days instead. That is why we have chanukah today. it is not about the presents. it is about the favor God granted the maccabees. we celebrate by saying prayers opening presents and maybe even eating coins made of chocolate.
Celebrating christmas by will

Personal Narrative- Most Memorable Christmas
Ever since I could remember, I have spent Christmas at my grandmother’s house, a house which is full of comfort, warmth, and happiness. At Christmas, I have always been able to escape the cold and dark real world allowing myself to truly enjoy just several moments in time. These moments have left impressionable memories from my childhood making Christmas a holiday that is special to me and my family. It is a time for my family to get together, share stories, laugh, and even cry.
My most memorable Christmas is one from my past. I was about six years old. I clearly remember sitting in class on the last day of school before Christmas vacation anticipating the bell to ring and signify that the classes were finally over. As the bell rang, I ran out of that class, and once I got home I was ready in an instant to leave for my grandmother’s where I would spend my holidays. It was a two hour drive to my grandmother’s house. I was very impatient throughout the entire drive. I couldn’t wait to see my grandma, my cousin, and my aunts. To make things better, however, snow started to fall filling me with hopes of a snowball fight the next day.
Finally, we arrived at our destination. I left the car leaving my parents and little brother behind and ran up the steps to my grandma’s house. I just had to be the first one to knock on her door, so I did. She opened the door for me, and I went inside parting with the bitter cold and darkness surrounding me. Inside the house I was immediately encircled with the aromas of her Christmas cooking and baking. A real fresh Christmas tree which was already beautifully adorned with old family ornaments perforated the air with more holiday aromas. I went into the kitchen with my mom, and together we helped my grandma finish preparing the Christmas Eve dinner.
Soon, we all sat around the dinner table enjoying my grandma’s culinary specialties. There was one dish that had stuck in my mind though, possibly because it was the last dish served that night.
