Thanksgiving is coming up fast and NHS families are getting ready to carry on their family traditions.

“The night before thanksgiving my mom starts cooking so she doesn’t have to all day the next day,” NHS student Richmond Chandler said. “Then she wakes up early the next morning to make the easy stuff like mashed potatoes.”

Many families prepare differently on Thanksgiving. Some might eat dinner at a restaurant, and others might have a home-cooked meal.

Families get together to celebrate and connect with their relatives on Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving meal is a big part of the day too. According to some people, the meal is the most important time of the day.

“My family all meets up at my house and we eat together,” Sam Kodak said. “I believe that the Thanksgiving dinner is the most important piece if the day because i love to eat.”

The traditions of NHS students are interesting with the differences in culture and religion, but at the end of the day Thanksgiving is about the dinner and spending time with your family.
