It’s that time of year again! The time of lights, reindeer, and holiday cheer! Christmas is back in town, and along with Christmas comes holiday traditions. Let’s see what the students of New Haven High have in store for their holiday seasons!
Freshman Kamryn Poe says her family’s favorite part about Christmas is spending time with one another. “Every year, my family and I, on Christmas Eve, hang up ornaments we’ve made throughout the years. After that, we have a bake off,” she adds.
“During Christmas everyone in my family gets together to sing Christmas carols and the little kids meet Santa. We enjoy yummy food and open presents from each member. All of my aunts, uncles, and cousins attend. In a small house filled with about 60 family members, we enjoy the holiday!” exclaims freshman Makenzie Munsinger.
Jenny Alvarez’s traditions don’t start until the sun goes down. “My family doesn't really celebrate Christmas on Christmas day, we celebrate it on Christmas Eve. Instead of waiting to open presents on Christmas morning my whole family stays up till midnight on Christmas Eve.”
As one can see, there are many different traditions during the Christmas season. Whether it be a bake-off, a Secret Santa exchange, or staying up til midnight, everyone has their own way of celebrating! Have a safe and happy Christmas, and enjoy time with family and friends!
