My Christmas Break Power Write

Posted on Updated on

Some of us had an exciting holiday break, others, maybe not so much. However, I would like you to give a minimum 3 paragraph recount of your breaks highlights. Make sure that the majority of your writing is power 3’s! Details rule.

    White Christmas? Yeah, if you count white sand beaches! I was lucky enough to spend Christmas in the Caribbean on an island called Curacao. One of the things this island is famous for is its crystal clear waters for diving and snorkeling. We did an abundant amount of snorkeling everyday at our resort. Because the waters near these islands are so warm (25 degrees), you can swim for hours without getting cold. And swim is what we did. Everyday we would snorkel around the reefs inside our break wall. We encountered many different sizes and species of fish of many different colours. Lucky for us, they weren’t man eaters, just bread eaters. We would bring in bread and feed the fish with our hands. We saw trumpet fish, groupers, eels, parrot fish, needle fish, and many fish I don’t know the names of. The best part of it was that they weren’t scared and were often curious, coming right up to you in the water. I even managed to film this with my Go Pro.

    Another real cool thing we did in Curacao was go Deep Sea fishing. On our first full day Sam, my friend Shawn and myself set out with Capt. Gordo to catch some fish. We were lucky immediately as within 10 minutes Sam had caught a 4 pound tuna. However, that would be the last fish he’s reel in. We ended up catching many more fish, but Sam got quite sea sick. In fact, my friend even got sick. The swells we started to fish in were only about a meter high, but soon were close to 3 meters! Even I felt a bit queasy. In the end, we caught 3 wahoo, 5 tuna, and 3 barracuda.

    Lastly, a recount of our trip would not be complete without mentioning the fireworks on New Years. I’m not sure what it is, but the people of Curacao continuously set off fireworks day and night leading up to New Years. Nothing made this as clear as when we took the bus back from town to our resort on the night of the 29th. As we passed through the neighbourhoods we saw people all over setting off fireworks on the street. It seems that they take this seriously and are in competition with each other. Personally, I’ve never witnessed fireworks during the day, but that doesn’t bother them if they can’t be seen. It’s all about the “BOOM”! On actual New Years Eve the fireworks were continuous from dark till 4 am. Obviously sleep was not possible. I’d say overall that our trip to Curacao made Christmas a strange holiday, but what a beautiful change it was.

    New Year’s Eve
    Did you have a boring New Year’s Eve? I didn’t. I had fun!
    First, I slept over at my gg’s house and we watched a little bit of tv and talked for a bit and we got to blow up the inflatable bed’s so my cousin and my mom could sleep over. In her house there’s not much to do but it’s still fun!
    Next, we watched the ball drop. When the new year’s show came on and the ball was ready to drop we all counted down with the people on the TV in New York City. One day I would like to see the ball drop in New York City.
    Lastly, we all yelled happy new year’s when the ball finally dropped and then we all went to bed. After that I was tired.
    But it was worth going there!

    What do you get when you cross water and the cold? Ice! I slipped on it a couple of times here’s what happened. First, Troy slept over the first thing we did was played video games on my Xbox 360 by Microsoft we played a couple of games including Call of duty black ops 2 it was fun but after we got tired.
    The second thing we did was played with my dog it sounds fun right? Well it’s not as fun as it sounds the things we did was we would grab a thick blanket cover ourselves completely with the blanket than lay flat on the floor and call buddy (my dogs name) and he would bite and try to free us. It did hurt but it was fun.
    The final thing we did was when we watched a movie it was Drillbit Taylor. It was a very funny and good movie all night we kept going downstairs to get a snack. One of the times I got a piece of chicken it was really good, The only bad thing is that we couldn’t eat popcorn or chips. Overall, it was a really nice and fun sleepover.

And if someone went to the bathroom because two of my cousins were there Noe and Creann we would hind in the dark and scare the person coming back form the bathroom. Also we ate some cookie pizza. We also played some very scary games. Noe and me and watched some different youtubers together.
      Another thing I did was watch movies with my family. We got 30 new movies and we watched them all. Some of them were all the Saw movies. Also we ate snacks. And we played the card game hockey while we watched House of wax, but I call it Wax face.
      Lastly, we went to Home Town Hockey, when we got there it was really, really loud. There was very loud music. We got fee hot chocolate. I also got a mini hockey stick, there was a band playing on stage. Also there were famous hockey players signing autographs.

    Winter Break
    Boring Christmas vacation? Not me! Christmas was fun and exciting. One thing I did was play hockey. I went to this hockey camp, we practiced stopping, battling, tight turns and puck handling. For the puck handling we had to puck handle around 11 other people and coaches. There was kind of some pressure. The other thing I did was play against my friends. We tied. The second goal they got shouldn’t have counted because it was interference. When I went to pinch in this kid hit so I hit him back and I won the battle. It felt good after.
    Another thing I did was Christmas. I went to my grandma’s house to open presents and to go see family. We ate Finn pancakes, potatoes, eggs and bacon. Later went to go open presents and I got speakers, gift cards, pants and other stuff. After we went to my cousin house for supper and there was mashed potatoes, turkey, ham, chicken and other kinds of food. When we were done eating we played a board game but I kept losing.
    Lastly, I went to my friend’s house and we did challenges, like the flour challenge, its where you dump your face in water then put flour on your face then you just laugh at each other. The other challenge was “what’s in my mouth” challenge, it’s when you grab 10 things and you put it in someone mouth then they got to guess, so I put scissors in her mouth. Even though I didn’t go out of town, I still had a good Christmas break.

    The worst Christmas? Not for me! I had the most amazing Christmas break ever! It was extraordinary! One of the things we did this Christmas break was go skating. It was so much fun. It was my third time skating. Apparently my dad was amazing at skating when he was younger, but when we went skating, my dad fell twice! And when he got up he kept on nearly falling again. My sister Isabelle was really good at skating. She needed a little bit of help from my mom and dad, but she was pretty good for her second or third time skating. I was a little bit scared to fall, but my mom and dad helped me a bit, and I was a little bit better. But none of us were the greatest!
    Another thing that my family and I did was watch Christmas movies! For my family, watching movies is so much fun, because we love the Christmas themed everything! My family’s favorite movie has to be A Christmas Story. Our favorite part is when the kid sticks his tongue to the pole, and it gets stuck.
    And the last thing that we did was go to The Tour Of Lights. The Tour Of Lights was amazing! There was a lot of great houses. One of the houses we saw, was all lit up with tons of blue lights! They also had blue reindeer. And then another house we saw had a whole bunch of lights that lit up and were blinking, and there was music on, and the lights blinked to the music! It was pretty incredible. So this Christmas break was definitely the best Christmas ever!

    Have you ever spent a night at your relative’s? I have because I spent it my Uncles house. The first thing we did was we (me and my Uncle) played on his X-box. We played a game called NHL 15. It was fun, I was the Ottawa senators and he played as the Montreal Canadians. I beat him because it was 4-3.
    Another, thing we did was we went to go and play hockey at an outdoor rink. First before we left we had to go and find goalie armor and some sticks to play with. First he was goal and I was player. I scored 2 goals. Then I was goal and he scored 3. So I lost.
    The last thing we did we went to Tim Horton’s for some hot chocolate. It was delicious! But, my Uncle just had his coffee. Also we had donuts with.Even thought I lost in the hockey game it still was fun.

    My Christmas break
    I had the BEST Christmas break of my life. Not this year. Anyway this is my Christmas break. First I had Christmas dinner. Me, my brother, my mom, and my dad went to my aunt’s house for Christmas dinner. One thing I did there was play with my cousin, it was kind of fun. After we ate food like turkey, pierogis, ect. We also played a Christmas game where you take gifts. And then we went sledding and had hot chocolate.
    Another thing I did was play/hang out with my friends (Lucas, Connor, London, and Tristen.)We played on my outdoor rink, I played goalie and player. Then Lucas slept over for New Year’s, and when we woke up we called Connor, London, and Tristen and played mini sticks and hockey.
    Lastly, I went to go see Star Wars 7 (The Force Awakens) with my friend Troy and then go to the mini sticks tournament. I saw Star Wars on opening day. It was REALLY good, I like 4, 5, and 6 better but I like 7 a lot to. Then I slept over at Troy’s house and that morning we had the mini sticks tournament. We did not do good I think we came in last place but I still had a lot of fun. I my Christmas break was pretty boring except for this stuff.

    My Christmas holiday
    Hope you had a merry Christmas speaking of Christmas for my Christmas I went to a little town called Sioux lookout. Right when I got to Sioux lookout me and my cousin went for a walk. When we left for our walk we took a sled and started to slide down the road we did that a couple of times we got tired of doing that so we walked to Tim Horton’s. After we went to Tim’s we went to the park at the beach and I was on the swing and she was going to push on the swing and then I went flying off the swing we ended up laughing it off. After that we were hungry and we had like 40 dollars left so I and she went to a Chinese restaurant you eat then we went home and my aunty was freaking out because we were gone for like 3 hours then we told her everything that we did.
    Another really fun thing I did is the day after I got to Sioux lookout my aunty took me and my cousin to Dryden for the day. In Dryden we went to Walmart and in Walmart we bought presents and clothes after we were done that we were hungry so we went to pizza hut then we went back to Sioux lookout.
    Lastly, on Christmas day we went to my uncles for a feast and we opened our presents. When we were opening our presents my uncle dressed up as Santa clause and his beard was funny because all it was a white plastic bag with a hole at its mouth for he could Christmas was fun and I loved it I would go back if I could.

    Christmas break

    On my Christmas break there was Christmas Activities than I went sliding with my friend and other people. Than after I went sliding we went in the Community Center and some of us played hide and seek and some of us played board games.
    When I went on a ski-doo ride with my uncle and my cousin we went ice fishing. Then I caught two wall eyes and my uncle caught two pikes and three wall eyes, my cousin didn’t catch any fish.
    Lastly, my friend slept over. When she slept over we went outside and ran around with my aunties dogs until a lot more dogs came than we ran inside my aunties and watched a movie.

    My Christmas Break
    Hope you had fun over your Christmas holidays, because I didn’t. I had to spend the night at my auntie’s house we watched movies together ate chips, and played video games. It was boring because we didn’t do any baking and because my cousins we busy.
    Another boring thing was that we watched scary movies like Sinister, Insidious 1 and we ate dill pickle chips during the movies. While we were watching Sinister I thought it was stupid because their daughter hanged her Mom, Dad, and brother on their tree in their back yard where another family got hanged. When we were watching Insidious I only got scared at one part, when that demon was standing behind Daltons dad when they were having that meeting with Daltons grandma I think it was. When we were done watching both of the movies it was 3:00 in the morning.
    Lastly, we played son video games on her sons X-Box 1, we played Call of Duty Ghosts for 20 minutes then we played Minecraft for 30 minutes and when we were playing Call of Duty ghosts my auntie kept on killing me and I kept on getting mad at her and I seemed like she won all of them matches but I won 4 of the matches. When we played Minecraft we went into survival mode and we built a huge house together out of wood and it was kinda fun but the only bad part was that I kept on getting headaches so at 4:00 in the morning we decided to go to bed. So that’s how my New Year’s Eve went. Hope yours was fun.
