The Holidays As Told By Modern Family

“Always keep the rhythm in your feet and a little party in your shoulders."

The Holidays As Told By Modern Family
She Knows

The holiday season is officially upon us! While each family has its own traditions and ways of celebrating this time of year, there are some experiences that seem universal. And what better tv show to describe the holidays than with the families of ABC's "Modern Family"?

The holiday season is finally here and you're so excited.

But then you realize you have so much to do...

First, you have to do all of that last minute shopping

And there's always that one person that you have no idea what to get

But you figure something out...

Now you have to prepare for the family to come over

Which includes attempting to cook

It's fun at first

But things escalate quickly

You get stuck listening to the same story from some relative you've heard a hundred times

And when anybody asks how your social life is going

It's nice to be with family though

And you get that gift you'd been hinting at

And even the one you're less thrilled about receiving

However, midnight on New Years' Eve is well...

...And the morning after is even worse

And suddenly you realize the holidays are over and you have to wait another year to celebrate them

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
