Three Days of Fluctuation- Hanukkah, Christmas, and Deaths

Now this may be an unusual week for me, but my mom has been in this situation before.  It was July twelfth, and my grandma had died! The irony was that my mom’s birthday was two days before the death, and my birth was two months later! What a turn of events.

December 24th-     Today is Christmas Eve, or the first day of Hanukkah for me.  It doesn’t matter to me because I celebrate Christmas  and Hanukkah. The reason I celebrate both is that my mom and dad’s religion are different. So I celebrate both because I can.  At 8 o’clock on the dot we start our festivities. ”  Ba-ruch A-tah Ado-nai E-lo-he-nu Me-lech ha-olam a-sher ki-de-sha-nu be-mitz-vo-tav ve-tvi-va-nu le-had-lik ner Ha-nu-kah.” That is the prayer we say after lighting the candles. Then my sister and I played a game of dreidel, and I won because I got a gimel on my first try!

December 25th- Today is Christmas day! I race towards the presents with my sister trying to figure which present is mine. In less than a heartbeat we woke our parents at 8:30. I got a sudoku cube, a shirt and pants, and a Nintendo 3DS with Mario Party and Pokémon Sun.  My family then had a fantastic meal which had a juicy plump turkey.  It was absolutely spectacular! My Christmas was a blast this year!

December 26th- The day was starting off great. I had a nice breakfast , and the Miami Dolphins had made the playoffs. It seemed the world was on my side until we heard the call…. Ugh once I heard the news I got so mad. My grandfather had died. He just died of old age.  He died at ninety one. Which is a pretty good age in my opinion. I was depressed that he died. He was as cool as a cucumber! I hope goes to a better place.

I think these three days pretty much went up and down. From good to bad; bad to worse.  Comment down how your holidays went!
