She was the first of all the grandkids to get married, leaving poor Matt as the guinea pig for the family’s teaching skills. We started with a comical and relaxed game of “chicken foot” which Matt caught onto with ease (and he very nearly won the game!). Next, we played “catchphrase” for a good 30 minutes. Matt impressed all of us with his speed and skill in the game, but Sabrina later revealed to us that Matt was practically addicted to the game; that was all he and his friends had done at his bachelor’s party in late June. We waited until the Cowboy’s game started before we dragged out the “clue” game board.

Since the weather in Brazil during the Christmas holiday is usually hot, some families celebrate by going to the beach during the day. At night, it is customary for Christian families to eat dinner consisting of pork, ham, turkey, Panettone, and Brazilian nuts at around 10pm. When dinner is finished, families will attend a midnight mass, or Missa do Galo. Since pine so hard to come across in Brazil, houses are usually decorated with artificial Christmas trees which will hopefully be filled with gifts from Papai Noel, or Santa Claus. Children will often leave a sock on their windowsill before they go to sleep on Christmas Eve, and wake up to the sock being gone and a present being left by Papai Noel.
It was as if we were destine to be friends too because of family genes. Every Sunday afternoon, after church, me, my parents, my grandparents and my brother along with Josh’s parents, grandparents, and brother, would all go to Josh’s house. It was a ritual that started back as early as I can remember and still is carried out today. The parents would chat over coffee, our older siblings would ride their bikes and Josh and I would play in the sandbox. “Let’s play house.” I would always say.
We had our own bathrooms, yeah, as sixth graders, passing the eighth graders was scary enough. We also had our own lunch period, which allowed us to get better aquainted with our new friends and talk about how mad our mothers would be if they knew we were eating french fries for lunch everyday. Best of all, we could attend the school dances, which always brought up the conversation of who was going and who wasn't. And every Friday we got to participate in the Fun Friday activities. The first year was great, but that was only the start of many better ones.
For my final topic I decided to research and attend a cultural event. During spring break I was at my friend’s house. It was a Friday morning and I decided to just hang around his house. As the day went on they asked me if I was doing anything for the rest of the day. As I said no they invited me to attend their Shabbat dinner, a day where the family comes together and unleash stress and enjoy company.
We always say we are gonna beat each other in every playstation or xbox game we play. We also discuss what we are gonna do why we are together. We usually just play playstation or xbox but sometimes we switch it up and go outside and play basketball if it is nice outside. We talk about the new games we have gotten recently or what games we hope to get for Christmas. My cousins from Nebraska always open their presents on Christmas eve because the next day they are traveling to my grandma and grandpa’s house.

On August 17, 1977, he was due to fly out to do a show that night, and then continue to tour.
One major difference was that is was decorated as his sister’s birthday celebration was the previous day. His grandmother was in the kitchen a few feet away just checking to see how we were doing. Alex was watching a similar show as last time through youtube. Throughout various points, Alex went through channels and told me about the cartoons he liked. Also, there was a toy oven/stove I saw that Alex would later use while we were talking and he wanted to show me how to use it.
“Quang come here,” one of my cousins said as he came to get me. “I want you to play with us,” he kept saying repeatedly. Eventually I gave up and played with them. Are families were having a party tonight. “Today was suppose to be a great day,” I thought when I woke up this morning.
