My favorite Holiday.

Of all the holidays throughout the year, New Year’s Eve is by far my favorite. I like New Year’s Eve because I always get travel to my hometown in Casablanca, Morocco for a week or two. Therefore I get to spend time with my big family which includes my grandparents, my parents, my aunts, uncles and cousins. We get to share an amazing time together and welcome a great a new year. What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than to celebrate it with the ones you love.

First of all, my grand-mother cooks the best Moroccan and French food on that special day, she usually makes a big buffet to feed everyone in my big family. She always cooks a couscous which is a traditional Moroccan plate that consists of semolina (tiny granules of wheat) which is cooked by steaming and served with meat and vegetables spooned over it. The second best traditional plate is Mechoui which is lamb roasted on a barbecue, really delicious.
And for the French cuisine she makes the best fondue in the world which consist of different types of cheeses melted together and eaten by dipping long forks with bread. She also makes a plate of different types of cheeses like “fromage bleu” which is blue cheese, Camembert, Brie and she adds on a little bit of “Pate de froie gras” which is French for fat liver, it is made of the liver of a duck or a goose that has been specially fattened. Then, next to that plate you will find a basket of French baguette. And, for the fish lovers she makes this exquisite plate of fresh salmon with sour cream and mushrooms, then next to it you will find fresh oysters, clams and mussels. The mussels are my favorite. She cooks them in this special sauce with white wine, herbs and sour cream. For desert she makes “crème brulee” and a “mousse au chocolat”. For the drinks menu she has a full bar of anything you would like from champagne, wine and…...

They were imagining / thinking of the sea, the sand and of course, the sun. Shroich siad Tenerife faoi dheireadh agus ar aghaidh leo chuig an t-óstán.

...During my last school holidays, I spent a few days at my cousin’s house at Morib, a well-known sea resort. I shall never forget that visit.  On the day I arrived at Morib, my cousin told me that he would do to make my stay there a very interesting one. He said that he would make a raft to use it in the sea. Then he would buy fishing net to catch some fish in the shallow water near the coast. When I heard all this, I was very delighted because it was one of the reasons that I had decided to visit my cousin. We then walked up to the beach which is near his house.  While we were there, sometime in the evening, the sea looked extremely beautiful. I saw the islands and hills in the distance, the birds in the air, and a few boys and girls playing on the beach. I also saw some fishermen coming out of the water with their catch. All this was indeed very interesting to look at.  On the next day, my cousin and I collected some tree trunks from the forest nearby. As my cousin’s house is close to the sea, we decided to make the raft on the beach itself. It took us almost the whole morning to make the raft. We then had our lunch and went to Banting, the nearest town, to buy fishing net. After that we returned to my cousin’s house.  In the evening we put the raft on the sea. The water was still high, but the raft floated quite well. My cousin and I sat on it and began to row it by using the oars that we had made ourselves. We felt very happy indeed and continued to row it. We......

...Holidays “All work and no play makes jack a dull boy” Just as water and food is necessary for our body similarly holidays are also important for a healthy mind and physique. They provide relief from monotony of our daily routine. They are important for our mental and emotional well being. They are not only meant for enjoying but also for pursuing our hobbies and interests. During holidays, leisure replaces work as a priority. You are filled with the enthusiasm to explore, travel and learn. There are no rules for getting up in the morning and going to school. We are our own rulers as we manage our time according to our own wish. We play, visit places, pursue our hobbies and are relaxed. Holidays bring back to us natural vigour and cheerfulness. They relieve us of mental worry. Holidays are essential for workers in every department of life. They enable us to resume our work with renewed zeal and energy. Rest is enjoyable when it follows hard and strenuous work and hard work becomes easy and enjoyable when it comes after holidays. Holidays donot mean idleness. They donot mean sleeping and gosssiping. Idleness is not a thing of enjoyment. It is the root cause of all sins and evils. It is truly said, “An idle man's brain is a devil's workshop”. Wish to explore nature is in everybody's heart and holidays are best time to fullfill this desire. God also encourage us to travel. Holy Quran says, “Travel through the earth and see how He began the creation” (29:20). During holidays......

...Ariel O’Brien 10/23 Every once a year, someone always has that one tradition they like to do on a holiday. Well, mine so happens to be on Christmas. Every year on Christmas, my family and I like to play fun games after opening our presents and done having dinner. Some may have the same thing every year just like my family, but in my opinion, I don’t think it’s the actual same. My family and I like to be different every year. Even though we still buy each other gifts, there are some things we just buy for the fun games! Every year we try to come up with a new game, sometimes we play cards to win a gift. The fun about winning one of those gifts is that it’s not something that you expected, for example, a tissue box or maybe even a candle because it can be random. It’s the best to have a random gift because later on, we actually might just use it, which makes the fun out of the random gift. People also have their own types of recipes, mine so ever tries different things every year because my family and I like to switch up things every once in awhile and try something new. We usually look up recipes in a cook book or the internet and would bring it to each other’s houses. My family and I like to try new things every year because we wouldn’t want to get bored with the same thing every year something new is also exciting! My family and I also like to visit each other’s houses so we wouldn’t get bored going to the same one house every year. Before......

...gifts today for birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc. to friends and loved ones. A few reasons we give gifts is for peace, protection, love, or because of social obligations. Holiday gifting is a special occasion going back to the beginning of Christianity where the Three Wise Men brought gifts for baby Jesus. This gesture has now turned to giving gifts to our family and friends. The holiday season of 2014 is shaping up to be a prosperous year for retailers. With an estimated 4% increase in holiday sales compared to 2013 and consumer confidence is at its highest because of lower unemployment, higher wages, salaries, and disposable income. Consumers this holiday season are expected to spend approximately $804 on gifts. Along with lower gas and energy prices, consumers are more likely to spend more this holiday than the last on gifts like Disney Frozen Snow Glow Elsa Doll, Apple iPhone 6, and jewelry. Key promotions like Wal-Mart’s price matching policy, Kmart’s layaway service, USPS delivery service schedule hours expansion, the holiday season looks to be headed in a positive way. There are other ways to improve this holiday seasons like online retailers providing free shipping on all purchases or discounting newer products instead of outdated items. The holiday season will be promising! Even 2015 holiday season will be a good one as long as consumers are confident that the U.S. economy is recovering from the recession! II.

...During the holidays, we had plenty of time to do whatever we wanted. Some may apply for part-time jobs whereas others may be busy with their own CCAs. As for me, I went to participate in different marathon volunteering work. I volunteered for different races such as, Sundown Marathon, Great Eastern Women Run and the SGX Bull Charge Run. During different runs, I gained new experiences and realized that working and organizing such runs may not be an easy task and it requires a lot of team work to get this moving smoothly. At the end of the SGX Bull Charge Run, we were told to help disperse the crowd at the floating platform of Marina Bay as the event is over. Two aunties came up to me and told me they did not manage to use a single coupon as they came back too late. They asked me to allow them to join in the last queue at the Ice-Cream booth so that they could at least use two of their coupons. Taking pity on them, I reluctantly allowed them even though I had instructions not to allow anyone to queue anymore. After that, another two ladies came up to me and requested for the same thing, only they wanted to finish using two of their coupons. While my friend heard the conversation, she came up to the two ladies and told them no. My friend rolled her eyes at the two ladies which resulted them getting into an argument. I stepped in and explained to the two ladies while my friend went to cool off. I told them that we are not supposed to let anyone queue anymore and after a long......

Favorite Brand

...Favorite Brand Paula Plattner MKT/421 Nov. 23, 2015 Stephen Grothe Favorite Brand Coca-Cola, the real thing. I have been a fan of Coke since I was a kid, when everyone else was drinking Pepsi, I wanted Coke. This may not seem like a big deal in more populated areas of the United States east of the Mississippi, however in rural Montana, Pepsi is everywhere. I cannot tell you why I am obsessed with Coke, perhaps it’s the iconic red can, the bottle shape, or even the Coca-Cola bears, but I can tell you that if I am in a restaurant that only has Pepsi, I will just have water. Coca-Cola is the original cola and was developed in 1886 by Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton and was one of several carbonated drinks, Dr. Pepper, for instance, that were created during that time. What set Coca-Cola apart from others, was the vision of Asa Chandler, who run the company from 1888 to 1918, to take the company national. The reasons I like Coca Cola are simple; I like the taste, the packaging and the idea behind sharing a coke. First is taste; I simply think that Coke tastes better than Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. I am particularly fond of Coke Zero because it does not have that diet pop aftertaste that you find in other diet sodas. Second, the packaging, from the classic bottle shape to the distinctive logo, they both are visually appealing to me. I also love to collect Coca-Cola memorabilia. The Coca-Cola Polar Bears are synonymous with the holidays that are my favorite time of the......
