I know it’s almost Christmas but I’m just not in the Christmas mood because we always have the same old Christmas where feed the poor, go to church, and open present. But one day my dad told me to get ready for the time of my life because you’ll never forget it. On a usually cold winter day here in Denver, Colorado on December 15,2000 my family and I were in the kitchen eating breakfast until my dad eagerly came downstairs with a smile so big you could see his teeth.
“Good Morning” my dad said to everyone one the breakfast table, guess what today is? ….. ith a big pause my mom said “I don’t know dear tell me” December 15!!! My dad said like it was a big deal. My mom smiled and said “why are you so happy”, because “I have something very special planed for Christmas he replied” so get ready tomorrow were going on an airplane ride to somewhere beautiful for Christmas.
The next day came and we were getting ready to go somewhere beautiful my dad said yesterday, but it wasn’t easy as I thought, we had to pack clothes, shoes, bathroom items, and extra shorts, sunglasses, and even sunscreen for our long and meaningful journey.
After we got done packing we headed to an airport called Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Colorado Springs. When we got there they asked for our tickets and we got on board the plane to that beautiful place my dad said earlier on the day for our ride to somewhere we’ll never forget. When we got on the plane the air plane messenger said put on your seatbelts our first class plane to Florida will be heading of soon.
You couldn’t believe how happy the family was when we heard that because we never knew that our dad would do anything this spectacular in our wildness dreams, because ever since he had been laid off from his job things had been though lately, but we never knew he found another job at the hospital working as an Registered Nurse, but it didn’t matter because for the first time ever we’ll be spending Christmas at…. Disney World the land of the dreams. But going there wasn’t easy; you couldn’t believe what we had to deal with on our ride.
There were many babies crying, people getting up walking around for no apparent reason, kids next to me fighting o my goodness you couldn’t believe it when I mean it was crucial. When we got there, we were greeted by our grandma who was living in Florida at the time but now lives in Texas. After we rested the next day we went to go rent a car to drive to Disney World instead of getting a ride from our grandma because my dad said it’s wrong for a lady to drive a man around.
So after the 30 minute drive we were there, you couldn’t believe how big my smile was when we saw that big building in front of our stunned faces because we never thought in our wildness mind that we would see Disney World in real life. The first thing we saw after we went inside was Mickey Mouse giving us a hand shake and took our picture. After that we watched The Lion King in 3D, it was a fabulous movie that took place in South Africa. But that wasn’t it we rode on many rides like the batman which takes you up over 100 feet and drops you in speed over 50 mph.
Also we went on this boat ride where we sit down and someone rides and tell us facts about Disney World and how it was made, what year , and who thought of the creation. After that long day of fun, adventure, and horror we rested to watch the fireworks live in our hotel while we were talking about our past Christmases of how none of them were even close to this one right here in our young eyes. Christmas Day came and my family and I woke up to a truck full of presents from our family and friends who were happy for us because they know what happened in our past Christmases and they wish they were here celebrating with us at Disney World.
After that wonderful Christmas we were happy and sad at the same time, we were happy because our Christmas was a blast, but sad because we have to leave warm Florida and go back to cold Colorado. After we got home that evening on New Year’s Eve we quickly went to church and counted down to a new year. When we came to church, many of our friends and family came and greeted us with a warm gesture. After New Year’s we went back home and rested for the rest of our holiday break. If I think about it now that I’m an adult I could happily say that this was the greatest holiday ever.
