OVer the holidays for my family and I was a great time. We celebrate New Years and Hanukkah like said on the blog below. For Hanukkah because of the fact of it lasting 8 days we get 8 days of presents! Not to be greedy but man the awesome! Also we celebrate NewYears which we get one present on NewYears day. For Hanukkah which comes first, except the last day we got cash and chocolate coins. My little brother once he found out there were chocolate coins in the morning he woke up early so he could take everyones and eat them before anyone woke up which was pretty funny when we first found out. Anyway on all the days of Hanukkah every night we light one more candle than the night before. On the first night we had 2 candles: the one that mattered and the one we used to light the one that mattered. so at the end we had 9 candles. On one of the last day of Hanukkah we had a party with 20 guest! I don't know how everyone fit in the house but they did. We had a buffet sort of dinner (if you don't know what a buffet is it's a meal of the day where all the food is laid out on a table or more and everyone takes what they want). It was fun. Than in the basement we had a disco thing were I flashed lights on a disco ball we had and placed cellophane strips of different colours over it to make cool different lights. I also was the DJ so I chose a lot of upbeat music for people to dance to and My little brother was rolling around making guitar moves and going nuts because he had a lot of sugar. It was hilarious. After that we went to a friends house for the last day of Hanukkah and played a lot of games and lit the last candle. But before we went to our friends house we got our presents. They are bigger and better than the first 7 days presents. I got a Clarinet mouthpiece which is really nice. It is blue and see-through and it makes a really nice sound. But the way you hold it with your mouth must be stronger. My brother got headphones which is kind of unfair but I have a headset which i am happy about so its not so bad. My even younger brother got a new transformer. Than a few days later it was NewYears! For new years we did not want a tree in our house so we made one. My mom hung ornament from the ceiling in the shape of a tree. Thats was our "tree" For the holidays. That was my holidas pretty much.
