Personal Narrative: My Thanksgiving With My Family

Satisfactory Essays
My favorite holiday memory was Thanksgiving with my family in 2010. As soon as I stepped foot into my grandmother's small townhouse I said hi to everyone shaked my uncle's with a firm grip, kissed my grandpa and grandma's hands, and my aunts all left a huge red spot of lipstick on my cheek acting as if I was still a kid. When I was done doing with business I gave my four other cousins around my age that look, which was to run to the basement and wrestle or do other wild things until my grandpa would come down stairs screaming at us. After a couple of hours when my cousins and I were done fooling around, we would all ask our parents for a dollar or two.

It was my most memorable holiday for me because all the members in my family were present. During that time everyone was laughing, having fun, and enjoying spending time with one another. The best part of Thanksgiving dinner was food which was turkey and the gravy. The worst part was when one of my uncles took the whole entire turkey leg just for himself and everyone was staring at him with a frown. Later I stood up to get a bottle of water. I came back my and my spoon was missing, I looked to my right and the same spoon I was using was on my uncles plate. My family is very strict on respect, so if I even said anything then they would of looked at me and would of been like look that disrespectful boy so I did not even bother. Despite my uncle doing that I still love and miss him. That was my favorite holiday memory because my grandmother was still alive and all my family still lived in Chicago. Thanksgiving is the best holiday because you notice how thankful you are and how many times in the year how most people are not grateful. How in the blink of an eye one of your family members could be gone just like

    My Thanksgiving break was pretty good. On Thanksgiving, I went to Indiana to my cousins' house. It was a two-hour drive, so it wasn't that long. All of my cousins are older than me- literally, all of my cousins even from I don't know where. The only people younger than me are my siblings so I'm not the youngest of ALL the people. Anyways, we had eaten all of the thanksgiving things you can possibly eat. I loved thanksgiving this year and I can't wait next year. Over the weekend, I also got a new…

    During Thanksgiving, there are so many amazing sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feelings. There is mounds of delicious food and friends and family. The table is set and all of the delectable food is on it. I can hear people talking and arguing about if apple or samsung is better. When I eat, I can feel the mashed potatoes on my tongue and taste the sweet pumpkin pie in my mouth. I can smell the salty green beans and the fragrance of the turkey cooking in the oven. We all feel very hungry and thankful…

    The disappearance of my dad changed everything. It all started with a phone call. The message, echoing in my ear like a gunshot, was clear: my dad will move to China without us. At the time my father did not tell me the exact reason for his departure, but I read recently in a magazine that he was escaping from a group of lobbying businessmen, or more specifically, a group of gangsters. He was gone for a year, and, my seemingly perfect life was completely destroyed. At least I thought that was the…
