What is something that you and your family do every year?

Every year me and my family go to my grandparent and have fun- we sit around eating a lot of food laughing talking and just being together. 

Why are you looking forward to Thanksgiving? 

I’m looking forward to hanging out with my cousins that I haven’t seen in a while since they stay in New Mexico.

What about Thanksgiving is important to you? 

Thanksgiving is important to me because I get to be with my family and grandparents that I never get to see. 

 

Britney Tejada-12

What is something that you and your family do every year?  

Something that my family and I do every Thanksgiving is that we go to my sisters house every single year and we eat a thing called panes which is a traditional dish in El Salvador which consists of a piece of bread with cabbage inside of it and a piece of chicken. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving like everyone usually does but even though we have different traditions we still have something in common. We eat pie , green bean casserole and we all give thanks for having a wonderful family.

Why are you looking forward to Thanksgiving? 

Something that I’m looking forward to is eating all that good food and having a good time with my family.

The important thing about Thanksgiving is to give thanks for all the stuff we have , not everyone is fortunate enough to to celebrate it with there family.
