Give thanks for Thanksgiving break

Turkey Day this year lies on Nov. 27th. Although everyone celebrates Thanksgiving differently, most people’s ideas of the purpose behind the festive day remain the same; Thanksgiving is meant to give thanks for those you love.

A CPHS student who enjoys Thanksgiving break is senior Kaleb Sindac.

“Thanksgiving is for families to gather and spend time together,” Sindac said. “I love cooking for Thanksgiving. During the break, I watch movie marathons and hang out with my friends.”

Another Thanksgiving-lover is freshman Reagan Stephenson.

“The purpose for Thanksgiving is to be thankful for what you have,” Stephenson said. “Thanksgiving is a time for families to come together and celebrate what they’re thankful for. For break I’m going to San Antonio to spend time with my family,” Stephenson said.

Stephenson appreciates spending time with his family.

“I love sitting down with my family for the feast and playing football with them, too.”

CPHS junior Zach Garcia also enjoys family and football traditions.

“Thanksgiving is really a time for family to come together,” Garcia said. “During break I’m going to Corpus to be with my family. My favorite activity on Thanksgiving is playing football with my cousins.”

Although football may be a tradition for some families, it’s not for all. Sophomore Macalah Thomas enjoys riding her motorcycle during breaks from school.

“Thanksgiving is meant to give people a sense of togetherness and to help you think about what you’re thankful for,” Thomas said. “My family is coming to Texas for Thanksgiving and I’m going off-roading with my dad on Friday,” Thomas said. Although Thomas’s traditions aren’t necessarily normal, she has a lot of fun during the break.

“I really love sitting around and reminiscing old stories and memories with my family during Thanksgiving.”
