Winter is coming
Nov . 2016
It’s getting colder in Canada, leaves are falling from free and winter is coming!!!

I’m afraid of December, I might be freeze. This month had a lot of event, so I’d like to talk about that. First, had a big holiday in Canada on October 10th, It’s called “Thanks giving day”. It celebrate as a day of giving thanks for blessing of harvest and preceding year, so held on every year. The festival originated in 1621, the Plymouth Colonists and Wampanoag Indians shred an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. Therefore, this day has no class every students and spend holiday with family. Main dish is of course Turkey, it’s very essential dish. I ate with cranberry sauce, gravy sauce and stuffing. Stuffing is kind of mix dressing such as including dries breads, vegetables and some herbs. Side dishes were mashed potato and boiled vegetables, desert was apple pie. It was really good time, and also I could gain precious experience of Canadian culture.

As you know, October 31th was Halloween! Its more popular event than Japan. Almost houses was decorated such as making “jack-o-lantern”, ghost, and cross and also children and adult dressed up Halloween costume. At the night, Children said “trick or treat “and they received some chocolates and candies. Some students were wearing the costume to the school and bus driver were making up Skelton face. I thought it is real event. In the class, I learned about story and history, how it started such as watched Halloween movies and compared some countries. It could know about origin and what is difference of another countries.

By the way, this week was big news, finally United of America president was chosen. Everybody was surprised the result and afraid of the future. All time the class, I discussed with classmates about why was he chosen? , compared the Obama and Trump and what will happen the future. Canada is close to the United of America, so after result everyone accessed habitant site and it became an abnormal shutdown. And he might be built the wall between United of America and Mexico. I could not believe result , everyone thought.
