I am sorry I have not posted in a while; I have spent the past few weeks celebrating Christmas with family and friends! I enjoyed being home for my family’s holiday traditions!
After Mass on Christmas Eve, my family went over a family friend’s house for dinner- a tradition we’ve had since I was little. We had ribs, pizza, salad and cookies, all of which were delicious!! At home, everyone in my family opened one of their presents, and my siblings and I received new pajamas, like we have every year since I was in elementary school.
The next morning, my family opened the presents we gave each other, and had cinnamon rolls for breakfast. My grandmother, aunt, and godfather came over later for Christmas dinner. My family always orders Chinese food on Christmas, so we ate and then exchanged more gifts.
I hung out with some friends the next day to exchange gifts for our Secret Santa. It was great to hang out with them; my friend Caroline got my Bath and Body Works products, and my friend Brittany enjoyed the gift I picked out for her. Later that night, I went over another friend’s house and got to see friends from my high school drama club!!
Overall, I had an amazing Christmas!! I feel so grateful that I was able to celebrate at home with loved ones! Christmas made it feel like I had never left for school, since we still kept all of my favorite traditions!!
Thanks for reading!!
