Hi, it’s me again. Today, I’m going to be talking about holidays.

A holiday I like is Canada Day. It’s a statutory holiday, which means that stores and schools are closed. There aren’t many festivities, which means that I can just sleep in all day and do nothing. With COVID-19, there isn’t a parade, so on Canada Day, I can spend the entire day relaxing. This is especially nice when Canada Day occurs on a weekday. I wrote a poem about how much I like Canada Day.

On Canada Day, I sleep all day. I go outside maybe once all day.
For around five minutes, I’ll get out of bed, but I’ll change my mind and go back to sleep instead.
I’ll go to the park to see the parade, but as soon as it ends, I go back home to the shade, back to my bedroom, which is basically a cave.
Not, to say I don’t like the day. It’s a pretty fun time, but that’s all there is to say.
I hope you enjoyed this short little poem about a cool little holiday called Canada Day.

It goes without saying that another favourite holiday of mine is Christmas. I’m not religious or anything, but I still like the other aspects of the holiday. My grandparents always come over and my grandmother always bakes shortbread cookies. They come over in the morning and we eat breakfast and open presents together and have a great time. I honestly don’t really like the excess of decorations everyone puts up and the almost intrusive amount of Christmas music played over the radio. It’s just a little… much.

Later in the day, we usually go to my grandparents’ house and eat dinner there. We have a lot of fun and it’s always something I look forward to.

I don’t have a singular favourite holiday, I like them all. I have some that I prefer more than others, but I don’t have one that I like over other ones. It’s fun to have a few days a year where everyone celebrates because of a certain number on a calendar. It’s kind of confusing and funny if you think about it.

Lastly, I don’t think I can feel like I wrote a blog post about holidays without talking about Halloween. Dressing up in uncomfortable costumes, staying up too late and feeling terrible in the morning, and eating an ungodly amount of candy and instantly regretting it. What sounds like more fun…?

My parents and I usually go pick out a pumpkin around Halloween and we take it to my grandparents’ house to carve. My grandparents also take the seeds from the pumpkin and roast them, which makes a really good snack.

Well, that’s pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed all 479 words of this blog post and I’ll see you next time!
