Viking Voices showcases student opinions on different issues by asking them different questions.
“What does Thanksgiving mean to you?”
“I guess it’s usually time to get together with my family just be thankful for everything we have in our lives and just celebrate life, love and family.”
“It means spending a lot of time with my family and just reflecting on the past year and talking about what we’re thankful for and all that good stuff. My mom makes three different kinds of pies every year and we all just try them.”
“Nothing. It’s a commercial holiday. Growing up, [that] never meant a lot to me so it doesn’t mean a lot to me right now.”
“Really good food, and time spent with family. It’s like the prelude to Christmas. It’s typical, spend all day Wednesday making dinner, getting ready, just everybody comes over.”
