Wildcats share their favorite Thanksgiving traditions


Averie Hernandez, Staff Reporter

At this time in the school year it is very easy to get caught up in the work load before finals. Students tend to become less motivated and dread the school days. With Thanksgiving break just around the corner, looking forward to family traditions and just a break from school in general can lift everyone’s spirits. Wildcat staff and students share their responses of their favorite thanksgiving traditions and why.

“I love watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade every year. Now that my kids are older I enjoy it. I have done this tradition since I was younger.” – Mrs. Bach

”My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is playing family games. We are wicked competitive in our house. Someone always ends up getting mad and pouting because of how competitive we are. But it makes us all giggle.” – Mrs. Nichols

“For the past 20 years we have picked out our Christmas tree during break. We take the whole family out to pick it.” – Mr. Peterson

“Since I was about 13-years-old my mom and I have made cranberry fluff and it’s so good. I enjoy making it with her every year.” – Addysen Clark (12)

”Going to my grandparents house is my favorite Thanksgiving tradition because I’ve been doing it since I was younger. I love seeing them and eating with them.” – Hannah Edwards (11)

Taking time to reflect on the things we are looking forward to in life, such as Thanksgiving traditions, can help us stay positive during the long school year.
