Descriptive Grandma's House

Improved Essays
On this intensely brisk night, I ponder the evening 's activities that I plan to attend tonight. It 's almost pitch dark outside, but I choose to walk instead of taking a cab to my destination: Grandma 's house. It 's only a couple of miles and I know I can manage the weather for the time being. I stride along the perfectly paved cobblestone path that snow shovels have conveniently made for me. I take keen glances at every detail I see, as far as my eyes can wander. On my right, there are children in the city park building sideways, clumpy snow forts to protect themselves from incoming snowballs. To my left, there 's a little bakery with aromas so heavenly, the wafting scent travels its way through my nostrils; my stomach begins to produce a low growl in response. I know Grandma has cooked me her famous holiday feast and I can hardly wait. Walking through blankets of pure white snow on this merry eve, I realized how much I adore this time of year. After what seems only like a short trek, I stumble upon my Grandma 's house. The path leading up to her front door has bright red and white lit candy canes as if they were handrails on a bridge.

I throw my paper plate away and down an entire glass of ice water to replenish the drought in my throat. As the night rolls to an end, I find myself baking cookies with my Grandma into shapes of reindeers and Santa Claus and decorating them with red and green icing. I thank my grandmother for another wonderful Christmas holiday and it 's because of her why I adore this time of year immensely. Nothing will ever amount to the ultimate Christmas spirit and holiday cheer that every holiday lover will spread this

    I still remember all the fun adventures Chase and I would have while sledding in the hills of my farm and in the town of Culbertson. One of the days Chase and I went sledding together we made the coolest snow fort I have ever seen out of sticks, snow, trees and we even had a flag. I also remember making cookies for Santa and seeing my family members dressed up as him. They would attempt to persuade us that the real Santa Claus was amongst us when in reality it was one of my uncles. I also remember all of the Christmas programs I used to have at church and school.…

    The same night she orders half the oompa loompas to make the candy and the other half to lay a trail of vibrant colored sweets in the snow in front of every household to lead it to the chocolate factory. In the morning, the warm rays of the sun caused the candy to melt and dye the snow, creating a colorful pathway to the chocolate factory.

Within each box was an assortment of sweets, each designed with its own unique pattern of swirls and colors. On the bottom of the candy box was a silver ticket, identical to Wonka’s original golden ticket, which read: “Hello, people of the world, you may refer to me as Wonka 2.0 for I shall not reveal my true identity.…
