Activity 1 was the FreeRice.Com sign up, and I’ve already done that, so here is Activity 2: writing about celebrations I have taken part in since Christmas 2014!
Some of the events I have taken part in (actually participating, other than a day off from school) since Christmas 2014 are:
New years Eve- This celebrated the beginning of the new year (2015). During New Year’s I was at my Uncle’s house hanging out with relatives until around 10:00 pm. My family then went to my grandma’s house to watch the New York ball drop thing that airs every year on that day. After that I stayed up a bit past 12:00 pm and texted all my friends “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!” To which only a few of them actually responded.
Ash Wednesday- Where us Christians give up something (candy, electronics, something that you have or use that is bad for you or something you think you should stop doing) for 46 days (until Easter). I had said that I would eat LESS snacks between meals which I believe that I have done a good job with.
St. Patrick’s Day- This celebrates St. Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. To celebrate I went out of my way to wear green so that no one would pinch me.
Since there aren’t very many holidays after Christmas 2014 until now I don’t exactly have a lot to write about, but the ones I just listed are the more memorable ones; excluding most of the holidays when we had a day off between Christmas and now because I didn’t exactly “celebrate” those. Thanks for reading!
