Word and Color Celebration of Valentine's
February 14th is Valentine's Day. This charming day is for people
who like or love someone. It is a time to show their appreciation
for them. Many times people use this particular time to go with their
husband, wife, fiance, boyfriend, or girlfriend to a fancy restaurant.
I customarily get candy hearts from my dad. My mom and dad usually
go to a fancy restaurant which is most often out of town. This is a very
nice and popular celebration for all of the people in the United States.
I love this holiday almost as much as Christmas because it is so enjoyable!
Halloween is were you dress up scary like a ghost or monster. At Halloween
you go door to door asking for candy. But we go to our church and play
games for candy and toys and get hot dogs for supper there.
You could even win cookies, cupcakes, or a cake! Some of the
games are the cake walk, ring throwing, and sponge throwing. The
sponge throwing is throwing a sponge at a person, the ring throwing and
cake walk is boring. All the kids like dressing up and especially
On Thanksgiving we have a huge feast. We eat stuffing, turkey,
pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, rolls, mashed potatoes, yams, macaroni and
cheese, and green beans. We drink tea, milk, and coke.
We have it, because the Pilgrims came over, and made friends with the
Indians. The reason was for the great harvest from the Indians and
Pilgrims. Today we still have a feast like our ancestors.
Word and Color Celebration of Christmas
We have a holiday in our community called Christmas. This tradition
is celebrated on December 25. The day before, on the 24th, we celebrate
Christmas Eve. The colors that are worn on this tradition are red and green.
We have a man who is very magical and has nine magical reindeer. One has
a very bright nose, which helps the magical man see while flying in the
dark. We call the magical man Santa Claus. There is a tale about
the reindeer that has a very bright nose: Once there was a wonderful home
in the North Pole. Santa Claus was very busy making toys while all
the reindeer where out playing. They all played with each other but
they would not play with Rudolph for he had a bright nose. One cold
winter day, on December 24, Santa had to go and give toys to the good girls
and boys. But he couldn't because it was foggy and he could not see.
Rudolph came to him and showed Santa his bright nose. So from then
on Santa used Rudolph and everyone played with Rudolph. That is the tale
of Rudolph. That is what we do on this tradition called Christmas.
