Looks like I have a lot of hard work ahead of me. It seems like this will be a difficult, but fun project. I will make sure to refer to this blog post every once in a while just so I am reminded what I should be doing. I think that could be helpful.

It seems like you really enjoy Christmas for the pure spirit and togetherness of it which I think is a great thing. I completely agree with the part where you mentioned tons of people coming to your house and it being overwhelming. I also found it relatable and funny how you get kicked out of your own room to sleep in your brothers room. You did a great job on this and conveying why Christmas is important to you, and you can clearly see past the joy of presents and dig deep into the thought of family.

Jack, by after reading just the first paragraph I was impressed. You used words to describe the book which I would have not thought of. You are a master at muscular verbs, a skill I wish I had. Great job overall, you seemed to enjoy reading the book based on how much you took away. Great job.
This piece stood out to me, you explored a different area of traditions. Most of us, including me, talked about some family tradition, but you stuck to something you do yourself which I really liked. It’s great that every morning you go outside and run, I would be to lazy to do that. Great job with this assignment, I enjoyed reading your piece.

Finley, your piece was relatable and interesting. I thought your part about the Christmas Eve Mass was humorous and added som effect to the story, although it does not sound fun to go to, it added to the story and made it even more interesting. One specific line which I really thought was great was when you said “these traditions will keep on going, they might change a little through the years but the spirit behind them never will” that was a great line that finished off your piece well. I completely agree with it too, traditions last, and the spirit does no go away even if the tradition changes a little.
