They end up having to throw together a party in 4 hours. Luther also ends up having to put up all the decorations that would have usually taken at least 2 days to complete. While he is putting up Frosty on the roof, he falls off the roof and ends up hanging in mid-air by Frosty’s wires. Luther is saved by the same neighbors that were protesting him. The party still goes on and Luther has to celebrate Christmas.
One of the McCourt twins, Oliver, dies and the family moves to a new house. Frank and Malachy Jr. begin school and are laughed at because they’re both from America and talk funny. Six months after Oliver dies the other twin, Eugene, also dies. The family moves to a new home where there is one bathroom for the entire street and the bottom floor is flooded for part of the year. Their first Christmas in Ireland the family can only afford to eat a pig’s head and the children need to go pick tiny pieces of coal off the road for a fire.
I grew up in a small town in Montana; the furthest I have ventured was on a family vacation to Disney World in Florida. Someday, I hope to explore and see the most famous and beautiful destinations in the world. Going on a Caribbean vacation to the Bahamas would be a dream come true “The Bahamas is comprised of 700 islands sprinkled over 100,000 square miles of ocean starting just 50 miles off the coast of Florida. The archipelago is an ecological oasis featuring 2,000 breathtaking islands and cays and boasts the clearest water on the planet—with a visibility of over 200 feet. You can see your toes as easily as you can the world’s third largest barrier reef” (The Island of the Bahamas, 2014).
I loved sunbathing, building sand castles and picking up sea shells. Every day while we were at the beach my family went for walks. We always cooked dinner together and watched movies. I loved being with my family. I was also able to go to Pennsylvania to visit my best friend.
When Tan’s parents invite the boy and his family over for Christmas Eve dinner, she was on an emotional rollercoaster, she stated “I cried”(pg 349) and acknowledging the event as being a “shabby Chinese Christmas” (pg 349). Tan’s actions and emotions throughout the dinner was concentrated to only impress Robert. Tan makes it very clear of her newfound embarrassment of her family traditions and customs stating “my mother had outdone herself in creating a strange menu” (pg 349) because of Roberts presence she continued describing the menu items with disgust contradictory of what she would have said had Robert not been there. As the dinner progressed she threw herself deeper in despair when her mother brought out the whole steamed fish and her father offered her the fish cheek saying “Amy your favorite” (pg 350) and she “wanted to disappear” (pg 350). The shame of her customs did not end with that as the dinner grew to a close her father belched loudly stating “its polite Chinese custom to show you are
There are very specific details that show how miserable her life is. For example, "Besides, the invariable squabble for money on Saturday nights had begun to weary her unspeakably” (Paragraph 5, line 11). Her father would never give her money so she always gave all of her money and Harry sent what he could as well just to help. Her father said she used to squander the money and that he wasn’t going to give her his hard-earned money to throw about the streets. In the end, he would give her the money because he wanted Sunday’s dinner.
When I was young, I could think that people have gone mad since most of them used to do their shopping even before the sun would rise on Black Friday. It appeared humorous to me. In my viewpoint, stores should not remain open on this day. It should be the day when families and friends gather together as one and give thanks to God as they celebrate. Some retailers are always open on Thanksgiving Day, for instance, Wal-Mart and Best Buy amongst others (Millard n.p.).
Its warm and sunny just about everyday. You can smell the water and salt of the ocean everywhere you go. You never have to wear pants or big heavy coats, just shorts and tank tops all year long. Can you imagine going to the beach for a swim on Christmas? Wouldn't that be the greatest?
My sister and I spent every weekend at our father’s house. During the day we helped our dad and step-mom run the family restaurant. My father had still been sick at the time and my step-mom was portrayed more as a nurse than a wife for my father. After the long working hours my sister and I grew antsy for the usual evening fun to begin. When pancakes for dinner ended, the words that clouded our minds the whole week flew out, “Can we go to the park now?” Dad was normally in bed by now, watching his Bollywood films and kicking up a notch on the heating pad while we got ready.
