The sound of the last bell rings throughout the school’s hallways. Kids ran out the school’s front doors in masses and sat in their favorite spots until their parents came to pick them up. The noise of everyone’s talking was so loud you could feel it around you.

She sat with her friends waiting for Matt to walk by and pick her up. She listens to what her friends are talking about until she realizes that she has no clue what they are saying. Talking about that same show they have been begging her to watch.

She spots a tall boy coming to her school and jumps up, grabbing her bag she waves goodbye to her friends and walks over to Matt.

“Hey,” he says beginning the journey home.

“Why were you so mad about Thanksgiving?” She asks bluntly, following behind him.  

She sees the corner of his lip twitch with a secret smile before he says, “People forget that holidays are here to celebrate something great as a family, or something important, and only care about what they get. Not what they give. I just believe that’s sad.”

For a long time she’s too stunned to say anything. She tries to come up with ways to deny it or say she doesn’t do that too but, it’s true. She only cares about what she can get, not what she can give. So, she stays silent for a while thinking, “I probably should be more considerate, right?”

“Don’t let what I said upset you sis, it’s just my belief,” he says noticing her sadden expression. She nods and jabs him in the side.

“Ouch! What was that for!” her brother exclaims holding his side.

“I just felt like that comment was an underhanded jab at me so, I underhanded jabbed you too.”

“It wasn’t a…never mind!” he says making wide gestures with his hands. She laughs remembering that her brother is such a drama queen, with a little bit of common sense. So she starts to tease him about being such a drama queen, all the while she thinks of his belief on holidays, thinking, “darn he’s right”.

(Hi Falcons! Remember this holiday break that there’s are many things to be thankful for, and that it doesn’t matter about the gifts you get but the gifts you can give. Well have a great Thanksgiving!)
