It’s that time of the year again! As the weather grows increasingly frigid and the holiday songs play with increasing frequency on the radio, most people don’t need a calendar to feel what time of the year it is.

Many would agree that people’s happiness levels go up this time of year, as it is a great time with family, on a long break, celebrating what are widely considered the best holidays of all. 

Some teachers at WHHS told us what their favorite tradition is come holiday time, and how they celebrate the holidays with family and friends.

Ms. Caamano told us what her favorite tradition is. “When I was a kid, my siblings and I used to fight over this one Christmas tree ornament- it was this mouse, with cheese on a string attached to it- we all used to fight on who used to put it on the tree, it was really corny. Even now when my brother comes over, we look for it and try to put it on before the other does. It’s just something that reminds me of how my whole family used to get together and decorate the Christmas.

Mr. Saperstein told us about what he likes to do when the holidays roll around. “Generally speaking, I usually spend time with family. I travel to different states to see family that I don’t get to see a lot during the year. I also like to make sure other people have a good holiday season by giving back to the community.”

Ms. Occhipinti also told us about what her family does around the holidays. “The day after Thanksgiving, my family and I go and cut down a Christmas tree, and then we bring it back to the house and spend the next two days decorating the tree and our house.”

As the holidays near closer, be sure to take part in your family’s traditions, as it will make memories that last forever.
