The Zahra clan sit down for their Thanksgiving meal.

Thanksgiving is the day when my whole family gathers at my house to celebrate. Before we set it up, I would help out.

We all get different kinds of food. Some people get the turkey and some get other kinds. We had turkey, salad, rice with meat, lasagna, shrimp, hummus and tabouleh. The dessert was cake, ice cream and Oreo cookie pie

After we eat, we start cleaning up. When we are done, the parents go upstairs and my cousins go downstairs and start to play with the Wii. This is what we do on Thanksgiving.
