I hope that everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving and a week off from school. I got to go home and see my family. My brother for the first time in three months and my sister for the first time in 5 months. It was amazing to see them both and I hope that others got to see their loved ones as well. My sister came home unexpectedly and surprised all of my extended family at thanksgiving on the day. They were all so surprised and loved getting to see all of us home this thanksgiving. I also had a friend come to my family thanksgiving this year and it was great to show someone else some of the traditions we have. It also makes me think about what other people do as well. We all think that the traditions we have with our own families are so normal but everyone has so many different ones. It is so interesting to hear what others do with their families on holidays and what helps to make them feel better when they can't be with their loved ones.
