Since Christmas 2014…

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:

Epcot - Reflections of a New Year

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!

 

 

 

Winter Break

 Winter break (2014) was so much fun! My winter break was spent in Texas, not out of state, but it was still awesome. The majority of the time was spent at home, but my family and I also visited my cousins for about 5 days, and we also went hunting.

 

Some of my winter break was spent watching the BBC version of Merlin, which I have now finished (THE FEELS!!!). On Christmas I got a bunch of stuff, but I think that my favorite part about Christmas day was the new Doctor Who episode. It was awesome but a bit messed up for a Christmas episode because, well, I could say, but that would spoil it.

 

I also went to my cousins house, which we (again) played hide-n-seek in the dark. It was much more fun than last time because one of my cousins hid somewhere (I would tell you, but I was sworn to secrecy) and no one could find him. He even switched spots so that it was possible for someone to find him.

 

We also went hunting on an exotic ranch. Even though we weren’t allowed to kill most types of the exotic animals, my brother and I had each killed a good sized deer in the first 3 hours. I shot the deer from 175 yards away, which is equivalent to 1.75 football fields, straight through the heart. Both deer that my brother and I shot are currently being processed into different types of meat.

 

So how was your winter break?
