Purim. I have a blast going around the neighborhood and exchanging mishloach manot with friends. Last year I got dressed up as Darth Vader from “Star Wars” and this year I was a hippie from the 1960’s. Every Purim our family has a big seudah and all the cousins get together.

Chanukah. My mother makes really good food on Chanukah, especially latkes, and I enjoy lighting the menorah. Also on Chanukah my family gets together at my aunt’s house, so we all get to hang out. And it’s my birthday during that time, so I get double presents.

Sukkot. I like building a sukkah with my father; it is a real good bonding experience. This past chol hamoed Sukkot I went paintballing with friends and that was fun too.

Chanukah. The oil menorah lights up our entire home and I like looking at it. I also really like spending time with my father on Chanukah. I play dreidel in school and can redeem the tickets I win for prizes.
