In just a couple of days, families across our country will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday by stuffing themselves full of turkey and pumpkin pie. However, there are many other fun activities that students can participate in on the days between the 23rd and the 27th. Here are the top five things that North students can do over this five-day break.
5- Catch Up on Homework: For those who are behind on their classes Thanksgiving break is an excellent time to do makeup work or talk with teachers about extra credit. These five days can also be used to get ahead in your classes so that there is less work to do between then and Christmas break.
4- Go Black Friday Shopping: The day after Thanksgiving (and sometimes the night of) is a great time to find sales on clothing, appliances, and electronics. Nowadays ,with the help of technology, you don’t even have to leave you house to find good deals. However, it’s good to remember that this day is not only a good time to find things for yourselves but to get a head start on Christmas Shopping.
3- Watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: The parade is located in New York and televised every Thanksgiving morning starting at 9 a.m. This humongous event is highlighted by giant balloons, musical performances, and themed floats. Everyone is sure to find something that they love in this remarkable parade.
2- Binge on a new TV show: With five days off, you can start or finish up a TV show (after you have finished your homework). There are a variety of shows and movies you can watch with friends and family over the break. Some recommendations are Stranger Things, Grey’s Anatomy, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, or the classic A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
1- Eat: Thanksgiving is known for eating a lot of food with friends and family. With turduckens, casserole, mashed potatoes and pie, there is going to be lots of leftovers. Eating is one of the best things to do over Thanksgiving break!
