He is about 5’6 dark brown curly hair and green eyes with glasses. Dylan has a pretty good sized friend group trayvon, jace, chloe, alyssa, lexi, and tiyana. Trey, Alyssa, Chloe, and tiyana are some of his friends that he met this year. Jace has been one of Dylan’s closer friends since he was a kid.

Dylan has two dogs one named toka which is a really tiny dog and the other named gismo who is a bigger pitbull. He also enjoys listening to music he is more into oldies rap and newer rap. Dylan is the type of person who will always be there for someone no matter what he tries to keep everyone happy. He has always been interested in sports even as a little kid, the first sport he played was soccer. Once he was a little older in 5th grade soccer was still his sport but one of Dylan’s closer friends told him that he thinks he would be good at football too. He started watching the NFL and playing little to see what type of sport it was and said he “fell in love with it”. At 12 years old he joined the jordan football team which he is still on the team today in 9th grade. In Dylan’s first game he was scared to play “I almost started puking because i was so nervous”. The more he played the better he got “i definitely feel more comfortable, i’m more familiar with the sport and comfortable with the people around me.”. Though Dylan’s interests are completely faced towards football but if he had or wanted to play any other sport it would be basketball or boxing. Dylan says other than sports his life is pretty “boring” which is highly doubtable. Bases on his obsession with shoes if you ever see Dylan he always has a different new pair of shoes or they are always perfectly clean. Dylan won’t just wear any type of shoes though “My favorite shoe of all time is either Air Force 1s or Jordans”. Dylan didn’t always care about shoes so much until some of his friends started showing him jordans and he started to get interested and fell in love with shoes. According to dylan “that’s the most important part of the outfit.” every shoe has to match with the outfit. For example if he is wearing a black shirt and dark pants he would have to wear white shoes or black shoes. Dylan as of now owns 18 pairs of shoes overall.
Thanksgiving is coming up very soon and it is a national holiday which means it is only celebrated throughout the nation. It is on the 4th thursday of november and it has been a holiday since 1789 and was created by the Pilgrims it was a celebration for their first successful harvest in the “New World”. Their celebration lasted about three whole days it included about 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims. The English colonists or called Pilgrims would celebrate the days of thanksgiving as their religion and instead of feasting they would pray. The actual “First Thanksgiving” was held in 1621. Today for thanksgiving most families eat the traditional turkey as a main part of their meal. This was because the colonists had hunted wild turkeys during autumn of 1621 and used it as a part of their traditional meal. Ever since then turkey’s gained its traction as the thanksgiving meal of choice. They didn’t just eat turkey though there were many other things that were included clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, squash, ham, lobster, venison, turkey, and waterfowl. Their has kinda been a change in the meal that they ate compared to the meal we eat for thanksgiving now. The most popular things that we eat in our thanksgiving meal now is turkey, stuffing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole. In other countries thanksgiving might be a little different, in sweden they worship the sun and they dance and drink and eat they eat boiled potatoes, pickled herring, cream and dill, and wash it down with schnapps. In iceland the festival honors the Norse god Thor and they eat cured meats and fish, a dense, sweet rye bread called “rugbraud”, and a icelandic aquavit infused with caraway called “brennivin their main dish though is greenland shark that is buried in a hole for several weeks and then hung to dry for 4-5 months. In Hong Kong they try to stay warm in the winter nights by eating a bowl of traditional snake soup, it is so pose to be a “warming” food that heats the body and properly known as “yang” in chinese to counteract the “yin” of the cold season. Bermudians don’t necessarily have to worry about keeping themselves warm during this time but it does not mean they don’t celebrate the bermudians eat a meat pie called cassava pie as their celebration. The russians worship the sun during this time eating crepe like pancakes served with caviar, mushrooms, jam, sour cream, and of course, lots of butter. So as you can see everyone can celebrate the same holiday but in their own religion or way. Some people can celebrate these things in similar or completely different ways than others. It all depends on who your family is and what you believe in to celebrate a holiday. Almost everyone celebrates thanksgiving with their own types of religious food or dances or traditions. Most american family celebrate by having a huge family feast together.
