Thanksgiving Traditions


     Thanksgiving marks the time each year when leaves begin to fall, the air becomes brisk, and an endless supply of food is paramount.  GLHS students talk about their various Thanksgiving traditions for their families.

            “Every year on Thanksgiving my mom gives us a gift. It's always festive Christmas socks to get us ready for the holiday season. I don't know why, but I love getting them every year!” junior Tara Smith said.

            “Half way through our meal, once everyone has quieted down, we go around the table and share what we’re thankful for during the past year.  Usually it’s a very funny and tearful experience,” junior Sana Selemon said.

            “Every Thanksgiving, my brother and I dust off the old NES and play Mario.  Our gaming session is followed by a nice James Bond movie marathon,” junior Stephanie McCann said.

            “My grandparents always come over and together we all watch the Thanksgiving parade.  Then we stuff our faces with delicious food and fall asleep watching the end of the dog show,” sophomore Stephen George said.
