‘Tis the Season

December is arguably the most iconic and lustrous season of them all, it is a time where children and adults all around the world gather to celebrate and come together during a time of serenity. For many Canadians like myself this is called Christmas, but not for all, millions of people celebrate it as Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, and for some it is just a season for hot chocolate and snuggling next to a fire. 



Task 1: Family Celebrations

December is a season that I hold dear because of the endless memories and celebrations with my friends and family. An annual celebration that is infamous in the Zanker household is the Christmas Eve. feast. This event takes place with my dads side of the family and is orchestrated by my beloved Papi (my grandfather), he was an executive chef at many restaurants and can cook anything and everything. This feast is very much the marathon of meals that involves incredible sacrifice and commitment. This meal brings family from across the globe together and helps us reunite and connect. This is a very important event that holds countless memories and is a important part of Christmas for me.

Task 2: Photo Spark

These are pictures that represent amazing memories of fun times with family!

Task 5: Fun and Games

This Christmas themed game called Christmas Chains is extremely fun and would recommend. Identify and match Christmas baubles against the clock!

My Rating:  ☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️ (5/5)

  1. Hi Kai,

    You’ve been super busy with these three tasks. Well done! I’m going to share your post in tomorrow’s STUBC post for week 9.

    What lovely family photos. It’s funny because our Christmas in Australia is usually hot. Today I think it is about 31 degrees celsius. I can’t image having Christmas on a cold day! I bet you can’t imagine it on a hot day?

    Best wishes,
    Kathleen Morris

  3. Hi my name is Pierce and I think it’s really cool that your grandfather was an executive chef. Also, I want to know where you found a Christmas game like that because the ones I found where not nearly as good. I also think it’s nice that your family members from all over the world come to your house (most of my family lives within a couple of hours or so away from each other). I hope you will come comment on one of my blog posts at 2024pae.edublogs.com
