My Family Traditions

Decent Essays
I wouldn't say that my family has traditions when it comes to holidays because its nothing special. For example for Thanksgiving, every year, most of my family agree's to go to one house. From there, we usually just hang out and wait to eat. For dinner we usually have a turkey, tamales, mashed potatoes, ham, etc. Nothing really special happens on Thanksgiving because all we do is hang out with family and that is basically it. For Christmas, me, my brother, sister, mom and dad always do secret santa.I like keeping who we got a secret but my mom and dad always ending up telling eachother who they got and my brother and sister always tell eachother so it's not that much of a secret but we still like doing it. I guess that is basically our only tradition. Then on …show more content…
Then very late at night, everyone left and we woke up the next day. On Christmas day, my whole family came again but in their pijamas. My family were matching then when night reached, we played loteria and I ended up winning most of the games. Then came New Years' Eve. My whole family came over to my house and my sister cooked most of the food. It was so delicious. Like before, we hung out until 12:00 hit. I had bought for confetti cannons for my three cousins and me. At 11:00pm, I set my gopro up in a corner of the living room so I could get everything on video. New Years hit, we all went crazy and when I went to go look at the footage, I realized that it was on picture mode and not of video. Then everyone left my house really late and came back next morning On New Years day, me and my six cousins went to the mall in San Francisco. We got back not to late and played loteria again. That night i went to sleep around 2:00am and had to wake up at 5:30am to go fishing with my cousin and uncle. I got back around 1:00pm and went to sleep until 6:00pm. These holdiays went by awesome and wouldn't change anything. I can't wait until the holidays come around

    After two hours of being there we left and hit up a 24 hour Dairy Queen got a few ice cream cones then headed back to the house after a long day Within that month in a half of being in Alabama and hanging out with the family has been interesting. My mom, sister and I had seen and experienced quite a few things. One day when we were at the park, I had spotted out two guys wearing a Cookie Monster and a minion’s costume suit. I can never go to a public place with one of my cousins because he acts a little goofy laughing and pointing at people trying to get attention. Sunday evening I went to a Bowling Alley with a few people but, I never did play a game of bowling.…

    Christmas was smaller, the siblings would come by to collect gifts and grab something to eat but there was still a tremendous sense of family, those were the best times of the year. During Christmas I would be allowed to stay up all night watching my mom bake cookies of every kind, coconut, sugar, lemon, chocolate chip, oatmeal, cut out cookies, and peanut butter. She made cookies that lasted from the middle of December through January but I was only allowed to watch because “children don’t belong in the kitchen”. We didn’t have conversations about building or creating traditions so I didn’t exactly know that these were our family…

    It always seemed like the night took so long, but we’d usually get up at 6:00 am. A final tradition that happens every year in the Fullmer family is breakfast at my Grandma’s house. After we opened all of our presents and it is the time my grandparents usually get up, we all pile into the car where we cruise to my grandparent’s house and eat a yummy breakfast. Grandma usually makes golden hash browns, glazed cinnamon rolls, and juicy sausage. That is one of the many things I look forward to when I get up on…
