Macy Manchester ‘18: As Thanksgiving approaches, people get excited about the upcoming season and start to plan their Thanksgiving dinner with their families. Afterall, Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks to everyone and everything you’re grateful for, while coming together as a family to eat a huge dinner.
Hours before, even nights before, the preparation for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner begins. The most important part of the dinner is the turkey, along with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, ham, cranberries, squash, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, and so many other dishes to guarantee a food baby by the end of the night.
Thanksgiving is different for every student at Romeo High Schools as far as traditions and plans go for the day.
Freshman, Adrianna Lulati, looks forward to the dinner she gets to eat with her family.
“I starve myself all day and don’t eat anything so I can eat a lot of food for dinner,” Lulati ‘21 said.
Not only does eating excite many students, but so does watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City on TV right when they wake up in the morning.
Sophomore, Sophia Romine, enjoys waking up to watch the parade Thanksgiving morning.
“I love watching the parade because I love New York and the floats and balloons are so cool because they are so big, “ Romine ‘20 said.
Kaden Stively, a junior, looks forward to getting together with his family to have fun in a friendly football game.
“I love to play football with my family on Thanksgiving day because it’s the one time a year I’m allowed to tackle my brother,” Stively ‘18 said.
If in need of Thanksgiving plans, consider going down to Detroit to watch their Thanksgiving Day Parade and then get your game face on, and prepare for a night of exhilarating black Friday shopping.
Although there can be an endless amount of festivities, most students can’t wait to sit around the table, gives thanks, and eat a wonderful dinner with their loved ones on Thursday, November 23.
The Romeo News staff wishes families a safe and fun Thanksgiving.
