It’s that time of year again! The holiday season! Christmas is right around the corner. Many people are making plans for the special holiday and creating their wish lists too! Many of us watch Christmas movies, eat Christmas cookies, give and receive gifts, listen to Christmas music, get together with family and friends, and do other fun activities during Christmas time!
What are some of the Morgan students doing on the special holiday?
Freshman Abby Jasinski:
“My whole family gets together, and we all go to either my Grandma’s house or my house. We are having Christmas at my house this year, and we’re going to open presents all together, and have dinner as a family. I really like seeing the happiness in my family’s eyes, while opening the presents.”
Senior Riley Smith:
“Our main tradition is setting up a Christmas tree and giving family members presents. Our plans is to give family members presents while at the same time celebrating Christmas (eve and day). My favorite part of Christmas is having fun with family and friends while at the same time enjoying the gifts that I received.”
“My family would go to my uncle’s house to eat breakfast in the morning
and open presents. Then after that my family would come back to my house and cook food and get ready for my dad’s family side to come over and some family friends. That is my family tradition that my family would do every year. I am having my family and friends coming over for Christmas. My favorite part of Christmas is to have my family get together and open presents. My most favorite part is to open presents!”
“On Christmas Eve, we go to my Grandma’s and open one present. I’ve done this every year of my life, and will probably continue to do this until college. This year, I’m going to my Aunt’s house for Christmas, and I’ll be doing what people usually do; talk to people, eat food, and open presents. My favorite part of Christmas is seeing my family, talking to my family, opening presents, and eating food.”
