Thanksgiving is just a few days away! I love getting together with my family and eating a lot of food. We have many traditions in our family. The day before Thanksgiving all of my sisters (I have 3), my mom, and my nieces (4) get together and make holiday and winter cookies. We do our cookie day each year as a way to get everyone together who can’t be there for Thanksgiving. We always make cookies from recipes that have been passed down through the family. On Thanksgiving, it is difficult to get everyone together at a certain time. Most of my siblings have a spouse that they have to spend part of their time at their family’s house. Once we all get together we eat (even more) and drink and have a good time. One Thanksgiving tradition is that we pick a “Secret Santa” to buy or make a gift for Christmas. It is a much easier and cheaper way for everyone to buy presents since we are all on a budget. Another tradition is that we look through the ads for Black Friday shopping. We plan out what time and what we want to buy for an awesome deal! What are some of your family traditions for the holiday season?
