A Holiday Tradition

In my family, one of our Christmas traditions is to get the whole family together and play Christmas bingo for small prizes. These are some photos of the event from 2006 and from 2009.

A Memorable Gift

Favorite Holiday Memory

One of the most memorable gifts that I ever got was in 2009, when I got my HD video camera. I had been asking for it for a year, and I was really excited about getting it. It was portable and I was able to make and post videos with its software. I use it often and like it a lot. This is definitely one of my favorite gifts of all time!

My favorite holiday memory was from 2009, when my brother got a piece of paper for his present on Christmas. This was my favorite memory because my brother really wanted a book about Star Wars, and so my family and I decided to get him the book. However, it didn’t show up in time for Christmas, so we had to make do. When he unwrapped it, he was really excited because he thought that we had the book hidden.

Then, when we told him what really happened, his expression was so funny that we all had a good laugh about it. This was my favorite memory because I think his reaction was really funny.

Favorite Holiday Song

Mr. Grinch

You're a mean one, Mister Grinch You really are a heel, You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mister Grinch, You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel! You're a monster, Mister Grinch, Your heart's an empty hole, Your brain is full of spiders, you've got garlic in your soul, Mister Grinch, I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole! You're a vile one, Mister Grinch, You have termites in your smile, You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mister Grinch, Given a choice between the two of you I'd take the ... seasick crocodile! You nauseate me, Mister Grinch, With a nauseous super "naus", You're a crooked dirty jockey and you drive a crooked hoss, Mister Grinch, You're a triple decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich, with arsenic sauce!You're a foul one, Mister Grinch, You're a nasty wasty skunk, Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk, Mister Grinch, The three words that describe you are as follows, and I quote, "Stink, Stank, Stunk!" You're a rotter, Mister Grinch, You're the king of sinful sots, Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots, Mister Grinch, Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots!

A Traditional Meal

My family’s traditional holiday meal is on Christmas. We always have ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, and green bean casserole. For dessert, we always have homemade candy, such as peanut butter balls, chocolate covered cherries, cherry pie, and pumpkin pie. Usually, we don’t eat lunch and have Christmas dinner at 3:00. Christmas dinner is definitely my favorite holiday meal of the year.

Gift of Myself

To: Mom

From: Mathew

For my “gift of myself" (gift of kindness and caring), I will clean the entire house and cook all three meals of the day while my mom can get some hard earned rest.

I wanted to give this “gift of myself” to my mom because she always has to do everything around the house, so I think that I owe it to her to give her a well earned break by doing what she always does.

In 20 Years

In 20 years, I will be a computer engineer. I’ll work for Apple and help them with making new products. When the holidays come along, I’ll probably visit the rest of my family and spend the holidays with them. I don’t think that I could ever spend the holidays without my family, so I would probably visit every year. This is what I think that I will be doing in 20 years during the holidays.
