With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the anticipation for delicious meals and tasty desserts grow with each passing hour. I’m sure you can perfectly picture your grandmother’s famous pecan pie or your aunt’s mouthwatering green bean casserole. Now your stomach is most likely growling and you realize we still have another week until you can indulge in all-you-can eat turkey and mashed potatoes. Luckily for you, we have our very own Thanksgiving feast here at Ascension and it takes place the Friday before break. What better way to celebrate a week off from school stress, homework hives, and sleep deprivation than having a giant feast?

For the past few years, the parents volunteer to bring various dishes ranging from bread rolls to ten different kinds of casseroles. Don’t even get me started on the multitude of heavenly desserts that are provided. However, this all changed last year when Imonelli’s graciously agreed to cater the feast. With this new change, there were mixed opinions about the preference of who’s should cater our future feast. Coach McCullough expressed that he favored the parents providing the meal rather than a restaurant. He said, “The true meaning of Thanksgiving is the coming together of people over a shared meal. With the parents providing the food, there is a larger variety of food that everyone can enjoy.” On the other side, senior Isabel Frederick disclosed that she preferred Imonelli’s because of the “different variety of food” and its efficiency since “all the food is coming from the same place.” It is unknown whether this year’s feast will be provided by parents or by a restaurant, but I believe we can all agree that good food is appreciated no matter where it comes from.

As each day passes, the excitement for the feast and upcoming break continues to increase. Unfortunately for some (seniors especially), it seems like we will never make it to the weekend. However, keep in mind, as you turn one assignment in, the closer you are to having a week to relax and recover. So, regardless of if you feel like you’re drowning in essays, tests, and projects or this week has been a breeze, remember the thought of the wonderful Thanksgiving meals and sleeping in to help you make it through these last few days.
