According to Lowry High students, Christmas is celebrated in different ways with different traditions within families. Some families get together on Christmas Eve and have their dinner that night while others get together with family members and have dinner Christmas day. Also, not everyone eats the same foods for their special dinner.
“So what my family does is we celebrate Christmas Eve with my dad's family then on Christmas day I spend the day with my five family members and open presents,” said sophomore Anayeli Huerta. “ The dinner we eat is usually the food we eat on Thanksgiving and we have dinner both days.”
Sophomore Frankie Baumeister stays home and opens presents on Christmas Eve.
“We eat our special dinner on Christmas day and we go over to my aunt's house and spend time with family,” said Frankie.
“On Christmas Eve we go to my grandmas house. We have a dinner and a gift exchange. On the 25th we open presents and I spend the day with my family,” said sophomore Lucy Diaz.
