JCS Thanksgiving Traditions

JCS Thanksgiving Traditions

JUPITER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL – Thanksgiving is the holiday everyone knows and loves for being able to spend valuable time with family and friends, but the traditions that one develops are really what connect people together. 

As Ryan Lutz talks about some of his family traditions for thanksgiving, he includes fishing and playing football with his cousins. These traditions are very meaningful to him as it is a time when he can connect with the part of his family that he does not spend every day with. Whenever some of his family are not there for Thanksgiving, Ryan says, “We do it without them and still have fun” which is an important aspect in maintaining the spirit of the holiday.  

Ryan explains how vastly his traditions have changed over the years and how, “We have added more stuff onto it.” These changes go all the way from things such as food to sports and activities his family participates in during the holiday. But Thanksgiving is never complete without the famous turkey dinner that everyone loves. Ryan’s family is no exception to this country wide tradition. As he explained, some of his family’s specials include stuffing, turkey, and brownies for dessert.  

All these dishes, traditions and more are what keep this holiday together through the many hardships that one will face. Reflecting on the yearly holiday, Ryan says, “I am grateful for my family.” He is also grateful for the traditions he has developed with meaningful memories, which he will hold for the many years to come.

Thanksgiving is the time to not just appreciate what we have, but a time to recognize God’s everlasting love which he bestowed upon us. Because without his love, none of us would get the opportunity to spread his wonderful message to the people who never got the opportunity to experience it themselves.

About the Contributor
Julian Trzesniowski
Class of 2027 Student Journalist
Julian Trzesniowski is a journalist, a part of the student publications here at JCS. He moved here to the US from Poland 6 years ago and from then has been at work persuing a better education than he could have ever gotten back home. Living in Poland, he experienced the good and the bad of the community, and seeing how people can end up if they choose to go down the wrong path, he became aware of his friends and the ways they could lead him. Moving from Warsaw, Poland was very difficult for Julian, as he knew little to no English and was used to the culture that he was surrounded with in Europe. Seeking to fit into this community, he has been drawn closer to God through the many great teachers and staff at here at JCS. But as years passed, he began to miss what life was like back home, not knowing the reason why this change was for the better of his future. Over time, he saw all the great opportunities he had ahead of him and became grateful for what his parents had done for him. He then became known to this culture and soon grew into the great journalist he is today.
