Smalltown, USA

Living the dream ... not really.

Smalltown, USA
Noah Hadfield

Friday night football games, late night parking lot hangouts and the importance of your last name is what primarily makes up living in a small town. Even though I was not originally from my small town in grew up in it. Don't get me wrong I love certain things about it and has its certain perks but it wasn't like the movies.

Football, football and more football is what my small town revolved around. If you didn't play football then what we're you in this town. To me, this was a small minded out look but who am I to judge. I love football but I don't feel I should be degraded for not wanting to play. Not playing doesn't revoke my "man card" or make me any less than what I am.

Second thing that kills me is if you do not have the right name then you are once again, a nobody. My parents not being from here made me a nobody. Eventually, throughout high school I made a name for myself and people grew to respect me. Even though I did make a name for my self not everyone knew me so opportunities others had I did not have the fortune of getting. My name is also not who I am it is just what I identify by and should not change your view of the person I am.

One side of this small town that I loved though was late night parking lot hangouts. It may seem a nuisance to many but we never harmed anyone and just chilled. It was a good feeling tired have a group of people to just chill with and not worry about being in trouble. The police see it as a bad thing but worse things could've been done. I've met many people that I would have never normally talked to if we're not for a metal meeting ground.

Don't think I didn't like my town there are a lot of amazing things about here. I just wanted to touch on the few things that drove me crazy. To my friends and family that may read this, I just want let you know I love you and you are the reasons I loved my community.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
