Today is all about parameters and staying within them. On our personal blogs we control the word count, but someday you may need to craft within the framework of certain parameters and this exercise is designed to help you practice that. So, since Easter is coming up and that makes me think about holidays, I want you to write about your favorite holiday and why it’s your favorite. Be creative. I know you all are super creative! There’s a catch, though. 300 words. Max. I know, I’m such a party pooper. Okay, what are you waiting for? Write! Now! Right now.
We all know what Christmas is, right? Right. Celebrated on 25 December, Christmas is the celebration of Jesus’ birth.
In my family, we exchange gifts. On Christmas Eve, we exchange gifts with each other, and on Christmas Day, we receive gifts from ‘Santa’. But before we open the gifts, we read about the story of Jesus’ birth. Because that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
We have a Christmas tradition that the youngest pass out the gifts. Thought, the youngest in the family is 3-and-a-half month old Wyatt. At Christmastime, he wasn’t even a month old. Therefore, he couldn’t exactly pass out the gifts. Next oldest is Lola. She doesn’t know how to read yet, so next oldest is me. At Christmas, we had a lot of fun. Lola wanted to pass out the gifts but she couldn’t read, so she would give a random gift to someone, and most of the time it wasn’t who that gift was supposed to go to. It took a while to get all the gifts passed out.
Christmas isn’t my favorite because of the gifts. It’s my favorite because everyone’s together. There is usually no fighting and everyone is just laughing and having a good time. I love Christmas because it’s just so fun.
