Fall break is fast approaching and many people are traveling home to spend Thanksgiving with their families. However, not everyone will have that luxury this year. Some students, athletes, and foreign students will not be traveling home. International students do not normally celebrate Thanksgiving, and will not travel out of the country just for this break. Other students won’t be traveling home, especially if they live out of state when they will be going home for Christmas break in just a few weeks. Our football team will also be here this break practicing before Saturday’s game. I found out what these students would be doing instead of going home to celebrate. Some are going to eat with their friends’ families. One mom is hosting some of the football team for Thanksgivings. And the more creative alternative is making ‘Thanksgiving burritos’ here with friends.
