The 28th of November could be full of friends, food and fun. Several Warriors say that for them, Thanksgiving is important to spend with the ones you love.

Judy Morales, 10th grade, said, “I like to spend Thanksgiving with my family because I am grateful for all the things they do for me.” Gianna Martino, 10th grade, said, “I enjoy spending Thanksgiving with my family especially because I get to see my sister who lives at her college in her dorm.”  

Traditions are an important part of Thanksgiving, and many students enjoy going through their yearly traditions during the fall season.  Mikaela Ghiena, 10th grade, said, “Some traditions my family and I do is after the Thanksgiving meal, we make a fire outside and roast marshmallows.” Her friend Viviana Deniculi added on to that, and said, “Before we eat our Thanksgiving meal, we all play a fun family game, Thanksgiving inspired.”

Along with traditions, Thanksgiving revolves around food. Different families from different cultures enjoy their Thanksgiving in different ways, but the basic turkey along with many sides is common. Judy also talked about her absolute favorite Thanksgiving food, and said, “My favorite Thanksgiving food is mashed potatoes.”

And lastly, the meaning behind Thanksgiving varies. Along with what Thanksgiving is all about, Mikaela also said, “I am most thankful for my friends and family, because they bend over backwards for me and would do anything to support me and make me happy and that is why I love and appreciate them.”
