Insights Into Teens: Episode 92 “Holiday Special 2020”

This week’s episode is all about the holidays. First we’ll talk about holiday traditions that we do as a family and ones that we’ve done over the years. Then we’ll have some fun with a little holiday trivia and learn some things about the holidays we didn’t know before. And finally we’ll finish up with another fun segment of “Would you rather…Holiday Edition”. We figured we’d wrap up another great year of podcasting with some fun as we take a few weeks off for the holidays. We’ll be back broadcasting live again after the first of the year.

Have a safe and happy holiday to all our viewers, listeners and fans.

0:03:09.680,0:03:14.649
yes we are okay

0:03:11.580,0:03:14.649
[Music]

0:03:16.800,0:03:21.519
so holiday traditions now now

0:03:19.840,0:03:23.840
christmas was always kind of a big thing

0:03:21.519,0:03:25.760
around my house i was raised

0:03:23.840,0:03:28.319
uh christian my family was roman

0:03:25.760,0:03:31.760
catholic so christmas was a was a big

0:03:28.319,0:03:33.760
event for us and growing up

0:03:31.760,0:03:35.680
we didn’t have a lot my dad didn’t make

0:03:33.760,0:03:36.159
a lot of money my mom didn’t work so we

0:03:35.680,0:03:39.360
were

0:03:36.159,0:03:42.560
um pretty poor

0:03:39.360,0:03:44.640
for for most of my youth um

0:03:42.560,0:03:46.400
so there wasn’t a lot of gift giving

0:03:44.640,0:03:48.319
throughout the year

0:03:46.400,0:03:50.159
but my dad really tried to make up for

0:03:48.319,0:03:53.040
that around christmas time he would he

0:03:50.159,0:03:54.400
would tend to go overboard on christmas

0:03:53.040,0:03:55.680
so that’s one of the things that i tend

0:03:54.400,0:03:57.280
to remember about the holidays the

0:03:55.680,0:03:58.640
holidays were always special so i’ve

0:03:57.280,0:03:59.599
always tried to make them special for

0:03:58.640,0:04:01.840
you and sam

0:03:59.599,0:04:03.120
and and the other people around me even

0:04:01.840,0:04:05.680
the people that i work with i try to

0:04:03.120,0:04:07.200
make the holidays a special time

0:04:05.680,0:04:08.720
so i have some questions here that i

0:04:07.200,0:04:12.640
want to throw at you i’ve got

0:04:08.720,0:04:13.519
25 questions regarding holiday tradition

0:04:12.640,0:04:16.239
so let’s just

0:04:13.519,0:04:18.000
let’s get right into it so the first

0:04:16.239,0:04:20.160
question is

0:04:18.000,0:04:21.600
what are a few of the holiday traditions

0:04:20.160,0:04:25.199
we do as a family

0:04:21.600,0:04:27.680
each year um okay so

0:04:25.199,0:04:29.040
we technically celebrate two holidays we

0:04:27.680,0:04:32.400
celebrate christmas

0:04:29.040,0:04:33.919
um mainly because you celebrated

0:04:32.400,0:04:36.240
christmas you were crisp

0:04:33.919,0:04:38.000
you were a christian and we all

0:04:36.240,0:04:40.880
celebrate hanukkah because

0:04:38.000,0:04:43.440
mommy was mommy’s jewish so i kind of

0:04:40.880,0:04:46.639
got to experience both of the holidays

0:04:43.440,0:04:47.040
so um since it’s actually the third

0:04:46.639,0:04:48.240
night

0:04:47.040,0:04:50.800
it’s going to be the third night of

0:04:48.240,0:04:54.400
hanukkah tonight um

0:04:50.800,0:04:56.160
uh our hanukkah traditions um

0:04:54.400,0:04:58.560
right now we have three different

0:04:56.160,0:04:59.919
menorahs the the first menorah you can

0:04:58.560,0:05:03.440
see on your screen

0:04:59.919,0:05:04.240
um it’s we call it a minecraft menorah

0:05:03.440,0:05:07.280
right there

0:05:04.240,0:05:08.880
um and we also have the traditional

0:05:07.280,0:05:11.360
menorah where we

0:05:08.880,0:05:13.039
light the candles and we also have an

0:05:11.360,0:05:17.120
electrical one where we

0:05:13.039,0:05:20.479
turn um the flames

0:05:17.120,0:05:23.680
the bulbs to light the menorah

0:05:20.479,0:05:24.000
and each night we take turns of doing

0:05:23.680,0:05:26.320
each

0:05:24.000,0:05:27.520
one well you know when i got old enough

0:05:26.320,0:05:29.440
to be okay

0:05:27.520,0:05:31.199
playing with fire in a way well we don’t

0:05:29.440,0:05:34.240
play

0:05:31.199,0:05:35.919
with fire when i was old enough to light

0:05:34.240,0:05:39.199
the actual menorah right

0:05:35.919,0:05:40.479

0:05:40.479,0:05:45.919

0:06:27.440,0:06:31.440
that she always uses

0:06:28.880,0:06:31.440
yeah though

0:06:33.280,0:06:36.880
if your home was manichevids home but

0:06:36.160,0:06:40.960
okay

0:06:36.880,0:06:43.680
yeah um so yeah she makes the latkes

0:06:40.960,0:06:45.840
she makes them for dinner and we also

0:06:43.680,0:06:47.360
have like sour cream and applesauce

0:06:45.840,0:06:50.400
which are traditional

0:06:47.360,0:06:52.160
foods for hanukkah and then when it

0:06:50.400,0:06:53.840
and then after we let the candles and

0:06:52.160,0:06:54.639
when it’s time for dessert we have jelly

0:06:53.840,0:06:58.319
donuts

0:06:54.639,0:07:00.960
right um because you basically just

0:06:58.319,0:07:01.680
hanukkah foods mainly consist of fried

0:07:00.960,0:07:04.319
food

0:07:01.680,0:07:05.199
and jelly doughnuts and potato pancakes

0:07:04.319,0:07:07.440
are technically

0:07:05.199,0:07:08.560
fried so and what’s the significance of

0:07:07.440,0:07:11.199
the fried food

0:07:08.560,0:07:12.160
because i’m guessing it includes oil

0:07:11.199,0:07:15.680
right because

0:07:12.160,0:07:19.120
it celebrates when

0:07:15.680,0:07:21.199
the maccabees had only enough oil to

0:07:19.120,0:07:22.960
light one night and it lasted for eight

0:07:21.199,0:07:24.479
days which was considered the miracle

0:07:22.960,0:07:27.759
which is why hanukkah lasts

0:07:24.479,0:07:28.720
for eight days very good um and then of

0:07:27.759,0:07:31.759
course we always

0:07:28.720,0:07:33.120
give each other presents yes we do

0:07:31.759,0:07:35.680
so yeah those are pretty much our

0:07:33.120,0:07:38.000
hanukkah traditions for christmas

0:07:35.680,0:07:40.960
um we make sure to put up our christmas

0:07:38.000,0:07:43.680
tree we decorate it with the ornaments

0:07:40.960,0:07:45.280
um we definitely have different

0:07:43.680,0:07:46.960
preferences for trees

0:07:45.280,0:07:48.319
we normally go for the smaller trees

0:07:46.960,0:07:50.479
since um

0:07:48.319,0:07:52.000
we don’t have much we i mean we have

0:07:50.479,0:07:55.120
room in our living room but

0:07:52.000,0:07:58.240
it’s a little tedious um so we just have

0:07:55.120,0:08:00.080
like tiny trees most of the time

0:07:58.240,0:08:02.000
we actually our actual tree is a little

0:08:00.080,0:08:05.280
bigger than the one we have here

0:08:02.000,0:08:09.440
um but still pretty tiny right

0:08:05.280,0:08:12.639
we also um normally set it on a table

0:08:09.440,0:08:15.759
and cover it with uh

0:08:12.639,0:08:16.639
um what would you call what we cover the

0:08:15.759,0:08:20.000
table with

0:08:16.639,0:08:22.479
it’s a tree skirt a tree skirt yeah um

0:08:20.000,0:08:23.599
and then mommy will wrap the presents

0:08:22.479,0:08:25.280
you know without us

0:08:23.599,0:08:26.720
looking we’ll make sure to put her

0:08:25.280,0:08:28.080
presents in the bags

0:08:26.720,0:08:30.479
and then we normally put them under the

0:08:28.080,0:08:34.000
tree and then wait for christmas day

0:08:30.479,0:08:35.919
right so what else do we do we do

0:08:34.000,0:08:37.440
uh we do a couple different light shows

0:08:35.919,0:08:41.680
right

0:08:37.440,0:08:43.680
so we’ll go to um shady brook farms

0:08:41.680,0:08:45.519
they have a very long drive through that

0:08:43.680,0:08:47.920
they do yeah

0:08:45.519,0:08:49.680
there’s a new one that’s a little

0:08:47.920,0:08:52.480
further south of us that we might be

0:08:49.680,0:08:54.560
doing tonight if the weather holds out

0:08:52.480,0:08:56.880
and what else is there there’s the what

0:08:54.560,0:08:58.720
we call the gaudy house

0:08:56.880,0:09:00.880
that we do that’s a good one where like

0:08:58.720,0:09:01.519
every square inch of this person’s front

0:09:00.880,0:09:03.760
lawn and

0:09:01.519,0:09:06.000
sideline everything is covered with

0:09:03.760,0:09:09.200
christmas decorations

0:09:06.000,0:09:10.720
and occasionally we’ll go to the um

0:09:09.200,0:09:12.880
there’s a neighborhood in pittman new

0:09:10.720,0:09:14.640
jersey and they decorate

0:09:12.880,0:09:16.480
multiple houses and you can walk through

0:09:14.640,0:09:18.399
the yards and they do a very nice job of

0:09:16.480,0:09:20.160
that

0:09:18.399,0:09:22.720
but what do we do christmas eve what’s

0:09:20.160,0:09:26.160
the big tradition we do christmas eve

0:09:22.720,0:09:29.360
um we make i think

0:09:26.160,0:09:31.440
the big tradition was

0:09:29.360,0:09:32.640
there’s something that you make and then

0:09:31.440,0:09:35.680
you leave right

0:09:32.640,0:09:37.360
cookies right we make cookies right and

0:09:35.680,0:09:39.440
who do you make cookies for

0:09:37.360,0:09:40.480
santa and what do we do we leave

0:09:39.440,0:09:43.680
anything else

0:09:40.480,0:09:46.560
yeah we leave we typically leave um

0:09:43.680,0:09:48.720
carrots for the reindeer but he

0:09:46.560,0:09:51.279
sometimes doesn’t really get the hint

0:09:48.720,0:09:52.959
right we also always leave milk as well

0:09:51.279,0:09:53.440
right well you know sometimes by the

0:09:52.959,0:09:57.279
time

0:09:53.440,0:10:00.320
oh well i i’m off on that camera oh god

0:09:57.279,0:10:01.920
sometimes by the time uh you know santa

0:10:00.320,0:10:02.320
gets to us with his reindeer they’ve

0:10:01.920,0:10:03.760
already

0:10:02.320,0:10:06.160
stopped at a number of other houses so

0:10:03.760,0:10:07.680
they might not be hungry yeah

0:10:06.160,0:10:10.079
all right so i think we’ve covered that

0:10:07.680,0:10:10.640
question pretty well so question number

0:10:10.079,0:10:12.399
two

0:10:10.640,0:10:14.000
is what is your favorite holiday

0:10:12.399,0:10:15.120
tradition that our family does

0:10:14.000,0:10:20.079
[Music]

0:10:15.120,0:10:23.600
oh my favorite that’s a tough one i know

0:10:20.079,0:10:25.839
uh my favorite one

0:10:23.600,0:10:25.839
well

0:10:28.160,0:10:33.040
i like how on christmas day we all wake

0:10:31.279,0:10:34.160
up we’re all in our pajamas and we

0:10:33.040,0:10:36.240
normally have

0:10:34.160,0:10:38.160
something similar to the to a you a lot

0:10:36.240,0:10:41.680
that we have on our screen over here

0:10:38.160,0:10:44.000
um and we just sit down and enjoy

0:10:41.680,0:10:47.040
ourselves and we open the presents see

0:10:44.000,0:10:47.839
if santa was able to eat the cookies and

0:10:47.040,0:10:51.200
see what he

0:10:47.839,0:10:52.959
um left behind so yeah

0:10:51.200,0:10:54.800
i kind of like that tradition because

0:10:52.959,0:10:56.399
it’s a very homey tradition

0:10:54.800,0:10:58.079
it’s something that i’ve been doing that

0:10:56.399,0:11:01.600
we’ve been doing

0:10:58.079,0:11:04.480
for a really long time and honestly

0:11:01.600,0:11:05.120
it really i really feel the christmas

0:11:04.480,0:11:08.320
spirit

0:11:05.120,0:11:11.360
in there and it’s just a really

0:11:08.320,0:11:13.120
like enjoyable moment for me okay good

0:11:11.360,0:11:14.480
that’s what we shoot for with our our

0:11:13.120,0:11:16.640
christmas traditions

0:11:14.480,0:11:18.880
yep question number three is are there

0:11:16.640,0:11:19.680
holiday traditions that we don’t do as a

0:11:18.880,0:11:22.720
family

0:11:19.680,0:11:25.760
that you wish we did do

0:11:22.720,0:11:30.399
uh i’m not

0:11:25.760,0:11:32.480
entirely sure okay

0:11:30.399,0:11:34.800
i mean i guess i wish we could play

0:11:32.480,0:11:37.200
dreidel a bit more than we normally do

0:11:34.800,0:11:39.519
um okay that’s a fair point we normally

0:11:37.200,0:11:42.640
do it like one or two nights

0:11:39.519,0:11:43.360
if you don’t know what playing dreidel

0:11:42.640,0:11:47.200
is

0:11:43.360,0:11:50.320
a dreidel is a four-sided top basically

0:11:47.200,0:11:52.720
that has different signs

0:11:50.320,0:11:54.079
and depending on which sign you land on

0:11:52.720,0:11:57.680
you either

0:11:54.079,0:12:01.279
so everyone there’s a pile of

0:11:57.680,0:12:04.399
um guilt and you each get a

0:12:01.279,0:12:07.440
um a certain number of guilt that’s not

0:12:04.399,0:12:09.920
guilt right guilt

0:12:07.440,0:12:10.880
guilt and yell are just chocolate coins

0:12:09.920,0:12:14.320
yeah basically

0:12:10.880,0:12:15.200
okay so we all get a same number um each

0:12:14.320,0:12:17.120
grouped

0:12:15.200,0:12:18.399
and depending on what you land on you

0:12:17.120,0:12:21.519
either

0:12:18.399,0:12:22.240
uh get you either grab something from

0:12:21.519,0:12:25.600
the pile

0:12:22.240,0:12:27.760
you do nothing you win or you put

0:12:25.600,0:12:29.680
one of your coins in the pile i think

0:12:27.760,0:12:32.800
it’s a relatively innocent way to teach

0:12:29.680,0:12:32.800
your children how to gamble

0:12:33.040,0:12:36.639
yeah so more drill gotcha i’ll make a

0:12:35.839,0:12:39.120
note of that

0:12:36.639,0:12:41.279
alrighty what’s the earliest holiday

0:12:39.120,0:12:43.120
celebration that you can remember and i

0:12:41.279,0:12:46.560
asked this because when i think of

0:12:43.120,0:12:48.720
of like holidays

0:12:46.560,0:12:50.160
there was one particular christmas that

0:12:48.720,0:12:52.880
i remember

0:12:50.160,0:12:54.079
and had to have been like 1983 i was a

0:12:52.880,0:12:55.760
few years younger than you

0:12:54.079,0:12:57.120
it was the year that return of the jedi

0:12:55.760,0:12:59.360
came out

0:12:57.120,0:13:02.480
and it’s been labeled forever in my

0:12:59.360,0:13:05.120
family as the star wars christmas

0:13:02.480,0:13:05.600
and it was a year that my mom was very

0:13:05.120,0:13:07.600
sick

0:13:05.600,0:13:08.959
she had i think she had hurt her back or

0:13:07.600,0:13:10.720
something like that and she couldn’t get

0:13:08.959,0:13:13.279
out of bed

0:13:10.720,0:13:15.600
so normally what would happen for

0:13:13.279,0:13:18.560
christmas day for us

0:13:15.600,0:13:20.240
i would get up usually some ridiculous

0:13:18.560,0:13:21.440
hour because i was the youngest of four

0:13:20.240,0:13:23.600
boys

0:13:21.440,0:13:25.040
and i’d get up at like five o’clock and

0:13:23.600,0:13:26.959
i’d go in there because i wasn’t allowed

0:13:25.040,0:13:30.160
to go downstairs until

0:13:26.959,0:13:31.839
um my mom and dad gave us the okay

0:13:30.160,0:13:33.920
so i’d get up at five o’clock i’d go in

0:13:31.839,0:13:34.480
and wake my mom up and ask her if it was

0:13:33.920,0:13:36.480
okay

0:13:34.480,0:13:38.480
and once we finally got the okay we’d

0:13:36.480,0:13:39.519
all go downstairs they’d be downstairs

0:13:38.480,0:13:41.920
already

0:13:39.519,0:13:43.360
we’d go downstairs and we’d get the big

0:13:41.920,0:13:45.279
reveal

0:13:43.360,0:13:46.959
well this particular year my mom

0:13:45.279,0:13:48.240
couldn’t get out of bed

0:13:46.959,0:13:51.279
i think it was her sciatica i think

0:13:48.240,0:13:54.079
that’s what it was she couldn’t walk

0:13:51.279,0:13:55.839
so instead of going downstairs for the

0:13:54.079,0:13:57.040
big reveal like we normally did we

0:13:55.839,0:13:59.040
decorated up

0:13:57.040,0:14:02.320
my parents bedroom and we did the big

0:13:59.040,0:14:04.959
reveal in the bedroom

0:14:02.320,0:14:05.440
and i got all my star wars stuff that

0:14:04.959,0:14:08.480
year

0:14:05.440,0:14:10.079
and and my mom would tell me horror

0:14:08.480,0:14:10.399
stories about the fact they bought me

0:14:10.079,0:14:13.120
like

0:14:10.399,0:14:14.000
30 different action figures and they

0:14:13.120,0:14:16.800
individually

0:14:14.000,0:14:17.839
wrapped every single one of them wow my

0:14:16.800,0:14:20.480
mom said it took her

0:14:17.839,0:14:22.399
hours to do it and i unwrapped every

0:14:20.480,0:14:23.839
single one and i remember for the next

0:14:22.399,0:14:26.639
i guess we were off from school for like

0:14:23.839,0:14:27.519
two weeks i would go upstairs and i’d

0:14:26.639,0:14:29.519
play with my

0:14:27.519,0:14:30.959
star wars toys upstairs so i can keep my

0:14:29.519,0:14:31.519
mom company because she couldn’t get out

0:14:30.959,0:14:33.440
of bed

0:14:31.519,0:14:35.279
until probably you know first or second

0:14:33.440,0:14:38.399
week of january

0:14:35.279,0:14:39.519
so that was my big you know wonderful

what holiday stands out to me the most

0:14:51.040,0:14:55.600

0:14:56.480,0:15:00.480
i don’t know if i can remember do you

[Music]

0:17:19.919,0:17:23.600
everything there for

0:17:21.439,0:17:24.799
yeah i think i remember i think i

0:17:23.600,0:17:27.360
remember playing with it

0:17:24.799,0:17:28.319
i don’t entirely remember seeing the

0:17:27.360,0:17:31.760
giant

0:17:28.319,0:17:34.160
uh christmas tree of presents

0:17:31.760,0:17:35.120
but i definitely remember playing

0:17:34.160,0:17:37.120
afterwards

0:17:35.120,0:17:40.000
yeah so that’s the one that i remember

0:17:37.120,0:17:40.000
the most with you

0:17:40.160,0:17:46.559
um okay so let’s move on so

0:17:44.160,0:17:47.760
number four what’s the earliest i asked

0:17:46.559,0:17:49.520
that one already

0:17:47.760,0:17:51.520
number five name one gift you’ve

0:17:49.520,0:17:53.360
received for the winter holidays doesn’t

0:17:51.520,0:17:55.840
matter which holiday

0:17:53.360,0:17:57.280
uh name one gift from last year that you

0:17:55.840,0:18:02.320
remember getting

0:17:57.280,0:18:05.360
last year yes okay um

0:18:02.320,0:18:06.240
i remember last year i think mommy had

0:18:05.360,0:18:09.600
gotten me

0:18:06.240,0:18:13.120
like a bunch of these like

0:18:09.600,0:18:15.840
um so i was into lost kitties

0:18:13.120,0:18:17.280
i still kind of am um and lost kitties

0:18:15.840,0:18:20.640
were basically these little

0:18:17.280,0:18:23.440
like um blind bags that

0:18:20.640,0:18:25.440
came with clay and typically you’d get a

0:18:23.440,0:18:26.400
little kitty toy out of it and it would

0:18:25.440,0:18:28.400
be like

0:18:26.400,0:18:30.160
it would either be like a plain cat a

0:18:28.400,0:18:30.960
different colored cat or just a cat

0:18:30.160,0:18:34.240
doing something

0:18:30.960,0:18:37.280
hilarious and i remember i think

0:18:34.240,0:18:38.640
it was last year that there were two

0:18:37.280,0:18:40.400
presents that mommy had wrapped that

0:18:38.640,0:18:42.000
were the same size and

0:18:40.400,0:18:43.679
there were and there were a bunch of

0:18:42.000,0:18:46.799
different things in this

0:18:43.679,0:18:49.840
in uh the lost kitty universe toy thing

0:18:46.799,0:18:52.160
i don’t know what to call it um and

0:18:49.840,0:18:53.200
there were these little milk bottle

0:18:52.160,0:18:56.320
shaped ones

0:18:53.200,0:18:58.000
that came with little kittens and i’d

0:18:56.320,0:19:01.919
gotten a few of them before

0:18:58.000,0:19:05.120
and seeing and like when i was opening

0:19:01.919,0:19:08.160
one of them i realized wait this feels

0:19:05.120,0:19:08.640
like like i i kind of thought i i kind

0:19:08.160,0:19:10.400
of knew

0:19:08.640,0:19:12.559
what it would be and turns out i was

0:19:10.400,0:19:14.480
right it was one of those little milk

0:19:12.559,0:19:16.080
to the little milk things for the lost

0:19:14.480,0:19:18.480
kitties um

0:19:16.080,0:19:19.600
so yeah i remember getting that last

0:19:18.480,0:19:22.720
okay cool

0:19:19.600,0:19:24.000
cool so number six is do you think

0:19:22.720,0:19:26.160
you’ll continue some of

0:19:24.000,0:19:28.000
our family traditions when you’re older

0:19:26.160,0:19:30.480
and have your own family

0:19:28.000,0:19:31.919
um probably yeah especially the menorah

0:19:30.480,0:19:35.440
thing i think it’s

0:19:31.919,0:19:37.520
hilarious i don’t know i

0:19:35.440,0:19:39.200
really like the menorah tradition where

0:19:37.520,0:19:41.280
we all just have like three different

0:19:39.200,0:19:43.679
menorahs and each of us

0:19:41.280,0:19:44.559
do a different menorah each night i just

0:19:43.679,0:19:47.200
think like

0:19:44.559,0:19:49.120
that would be i want to carry that

0:19:47.200,0:19:53.200
tradition over for when

0:19:49.120,0:19:56.720
i have um i have if i have my own family

0:19:53.200,0:19:58.960
um and for christmas traditions

0:19:56.720,0:20:00.080
i want to go out and do similar things

0:19:58.960,0:20:02.159
like shady brook

0:20:00.080,0:20:04.000
and seeing other and seeing the lights

0:20:02.159,0:20:06.480
for christmas as well as

0:20:04.000,0:20:07.200
of course the typical uh christmas eve

0:20:06.480,0:20:10.400
morning

0:20:07.200,0:20:12.240
okay good answer if you given the

0:20:10.400,0:20:14.000
opportunity would you like to start a

0:20:12.240,0:20:15.600
new holiday tradition

0:20:14.000,0:20:17.760
yourself for the family like i’ll tell

0:20:15.600,0:20:20.880
you the one that i started

0:20:17.760,0:20:21.919
uh when i obviously started the family

0:20:20.880,0:20:23.280
was

0:20:21.919,0:20:26.159
reading of twas the night before

0:20:23.280,0:20:29.520
christmas so is there anything like that

0:20:26.159,0:20:29.520
you’d like to start yourself

0:20:30.480,0:20:36.240
well i mean we’re kind of going to be

0:20:34.559,0:20:39.760
doing it

0:20:36.240,0:20:43.520
now um and that’s to kind of

0:20:39.760,0:20:46.320
do a little um like

0:20:43.520,0:20:48.559
a special podcast like i want to kind of

0:20:46.320,0:20:50.159
carry the podcast over for when i have

0:20:48.559,0:20:53.200
my own family

0:20:50.159,0:20:57.120
and i want to

0:20:53.200,0:21:00.320
keep it going and then do similar

0:20:57.120,0:21:03.280
podcasts for seasonal

0:21:00.320,0:21:04.720
family traditions as well as uh uh

0:21:03.280,0:21:08.799
coming soon

0:21:04.720,0:21:12.480
no can i go ahead uh we actually did

0:21:08.799,0:21:13.520
um a verse our version of a christmas

0:21:12.480,0:21:17.120
carol where

0:21:13.520,0:21:20.400
we actually released it last week oh so

0:21:17.120,0:21:21.520
yeah we did the ver our version of the

0:21:20.400,0:21:24.880
christmas carol

0:21:21.520,0:21:28.400
with all four of us voicing different

0:21:24.880,0:21:31.440
characters from um the

0:21:28.400,0:21:34.480
from the screenplay we um

0:21:31.440,0:21:35.919
adapted for ourselves um and i kind of

0:21:34.480,0:21:37.840
want to do a similar thing because there

0:21:35.919,0:21:38.720
are other christmas stories out there

0:21:37.840,0:21:40.880
that

0:21:38.720,0:21:42.559
possibly next year we’ll come up with

0:21:40.880,0:21:44.640
another one next year we’re actually

0:21:42.559,0:21:45.600
looking at uh maybe doing the grinch but

0:21:44.640,0:21:49.039
that’s going to require

0:21:45.600,0:21:49.840
some creative writing i think i haven’t

0:21:49.039,0:21:53.760
been able to find

0:21:49.840,0:21:55.919
a suitable script yet so question eight

0:21:53.760,0:21:58.480
how do you think holiday traditions will

0:21:55.919,0:22:02.320
be affected by the covet pandemic

0:21:58.480,0:22:04.559
this year um well

0:22:02.320,0:22:05.520
getting to if you ever get together with

0:22:04.559,0:22:07.520
like

0:22:05.520,0:22:09.200
all of your family for christmas that’s

0:22:07.520,0:22:11.600
probably going to

0:22:09.200,0:22:12.480
be affected because you’re more than

0:22:11.600,0:22:14.799
unless you

0:22:12.480,0:22:16.559
live with that family uh you’re more

0:22:14.799,0:22:18.080
than likely not going to be able to see

0:22:16.559,0:22:21.120
all of them but then again

0:22:18.080,0:22:23.280
you can always do like a zoom meeting or

0:22:21.120,0:22:25.440
just have a meeting with all of them

0:22:23.280,0:22:27.039
um yeah what we did for uh for

0:22:25.440,0:22:28.720
thanksgiving actually worked out pretty

0:22:27.039,0:22:31.760
well i was very impressed with

0:22:28.720,0:22:33.760
the zoom call for thanksgiving yeah um

0:22:31.760,0:22:36.080
and then of course if you go out for

0:22:33.760,0:22:38.880
christmas um

0:22:36.080,0:22:39.760
things will definitely be affected

0:22:38.880,0:22:43.360
especially

0:22:39.760,0:22:46.240
due to the pandemic but i think that

0:22:43.360,0:22:47.520
most of our tr most of our like most

0:22:46.240,0:22:49.919
people just have like

0:22:47.520,0:22:52.400
christmas morning where the kids wake up

0:22:49.919,0:22:54.720
early they bug the parents to get up

0:22:52.400,0:22:56.320
and then they have the ceremonial

0:22:54.720,0:22:58.159
opening of the presents i don’t think

0:22:56.320,0:23:01.760
that’s really going to be ruined because

0:22:58.159,0:23:05.120
it’s more of a home thing right

0:23:01.760,0:23:07.120
uh moving right along do you

0:23:05.120,0:23:09.200
what do you think is a fair amount to

0:23:07.120,0:23:12.559
spend on someone for the holidays

0:23:09.200,0:23:15.600
um definitely not too little

0:23:12.559,0:23:18.960
because you don’t want to make them

0:23:15.600,0:23:19.919
feel like you didn’t you didn’t like put

0:23:18.960,0:23:22.559
too much thought

0:23:19.919,0:23:24.640
into them but definitely not too much

0:23:22.559,0:23:26.559
what you overspend on them

0:23:24.640,0:23:28.080
um i think the right amount would just

0:23:26.559,0:23:30.640
be to show like

0:23:28.080,0:23:32.720
hey i know what you like and here’s

0:23:30.640,0:23:35.679
something that i wanted to give you

0:23:32.720,0:23:36.480
um like it doesn’t really matter the

0:23:35.679,0:23:39.679
cost

0:23:36.480,0:23:42.000
as long as it’s meaningful to them like

0:23:39.679,0:23:44.000
i remember one year you guys had gotten

0:23:42.000,0:23:47.600
me my little fish tank

0:23:44.000,0:23:50.880
you know when i was younger and

0:23:47.600,0:23:53.120
i played with that thing for

0:23:50.880,0:23:54.559
like ever it was just like a little

0:23:53.120,0:23:56.720
thing where it was

0:23:54.559,0:23:58.240
like an aquarium with water and like

0:23:56.720,0:23:59.120
there’s little and it wasn’t even real

0:23:58.240,0:24:01.120
fish either

0:23:59.120,0:24:02.480
yeah and it was just like little plastic

0:24:01.120,0:24:05.919
fish but i would like

0:24:02.480,0:24:08.080
shake that thing bring it everywhere

0:24:05.919,0:24:10.080
yeah like it doesn’t even matter like if

0:24:08.080,0:24:12.720
it’s a really amazing or

0:24:10.080,0:24:14.320
priceless gift as long as the person

0:24:12.720,0:24:17.679
enjoys the gift and feels

0:24:14.320,0:24:19.840
as though hey and it and it basically

0:24:17.679,0:24:20.799
just gets the messes across like hey i

0:24:19.840,0:24:22.960
care about you

0:24:20.799,0:24:24.880
here’s something i think you would enjoy

0:24:22.960,0:24:27.840
i think that’s just the important thing

0:24:24.880,0:24:33.200
nicely said do you have a favorite

0:24:27.840,0:24:36.400
holiday song

0:24:33.200,0:24:38.720
um let’s see

0:24:36.400,0:24:39.520
a christmas holiday song any holiday

0:24:38.720,0:24:46.720
song oh

0:24:39.520,0:24:49.520
it’ll be hanukkah too yeah like um

0:24:46.720,0:24:50.640
do i have a favorite um i definitely

0:24:49.520,0:24:55.120
know songs i

0:24:50.640,0:24:57.760
don’t like but there are like

0:24:55.120,0:24:59.440
i don’t have a favorite okay i i’m not

0:24:57.760,0:25:02.400
very picky with songs

0:24:59.440,0:25:04.720
most of the time i can listen to mostly

0:25:02.400,0:25:07.919
anything as long as it’s not on repeat

0:25:04.720,0:25:11.200
over and over again i can find

0:25:07.919,0:25:14.240
almost anything catchy except for

0:25:11.200,0:25:16.480
certain songs um

0:25:14.240,0:25:17.840
like i like a bunch of the hanukkah

0:25:16.480,0:25:19.279
songs i don’t think any of them are

0:25:17.840,0:25:22.080
particularly bad

0:25:19.279,0:25:22.799
i like most christmas songs some are

0:25:22.080,0:25:26.000
kind of

0:25:22.799,0:25:28.400
not my taste um and some i wish wouldn’t

0:25:26.000,0:25:30.559
be repeated over and over again

0:25:28.400,0:25:32.400
um yeah i know what you mean but i still

0:25:30.559,0:25:34.559
have my but i still have

0:25:32.400,0:25:35.840
some songs that i like i don’t

0:25:34.559,0:25:37.760
particularly have

0:25:35.840,0:25:39.679
favorites i just have songs that are

0:25:37.760,0:25:43.200

0:26:24.559,0:26:29.279
your guys’s faces

0:26:26.159,0:26:32.000
when you find your presents

0:26:29.279,0:26:32.480
um i specifically remember one year

0:26:32.000,0:26:34.960
where

0:26:32.480,0:26:36.080
mommy had kind of tricked you with one

0:26:34.960,0:26:38.400
of her presents

0:26:36.080,0:26:40.159
do you remember that um it was before i

0:26:38.400,0:26:43.600
thought it was the castle and it wasn’t

0:26:40.159,0:26:46.960
uh yeah yeah it was basically like

0:26:43.600,0:26:49.279
mommy had um well you can cut

0:26:46.960,0:26:52.000
whenever you think about legos you know

0:26:49.279,0:26:54.480
like shaking it you’ll hear the legos

0:26:52.000,0:26:55.279
um and mommy decided to kind of trick

0:26:54.480,0:26:57.200
you

0:26:55.279,0:26:58.960
um we originally thought it was going to

0:26:57.200,0:27:02.159
be a lego set that i could

0:26:58.960,0:27:04.400
that i would build for you um and

0:27:02.159,0:27:06.480
um turns out mario just put coins in

0:27:04.400,0:27:08.880
there in order to give it that sound

0:27:06.480,0:27:10.480
and it was actually tickets to go see

0:27:08.880,0:27:12.320
one of your favorite bands the eagles

0:27:10.480,0:27:14.320
the eagles yeah i remember that

0:27:12.320,0:27:15.440
yeah that was and it was pretty good

0:27:14.320,0:27:17.840
just to see like

0:27:15.440,0:27:18.799
the look on your face was hilarious and

0:27:17.840,0:27:21.279
amazing

0:27:18.799,0:27:24.000
that was pretty good so when do you

0:27:21.279,0:27:27.039
start getting into the holidays

0:27:24.000,0:27:29.919
um well

0:27:27.039,0:27:32.000
i still i typically for any holiday i

0:27:29.919,0:27:35.120
typically get into the holiday

0:27:32.000,0:27:38.320
when um the holiday before it

0:27:35.120,0:27:39.360
is done or during the or when the month

0:27:38.320,0:27:41.440
of it is

0:27:39.360,0:27:42.720
i don’t typically start celebrating

0:27:41.440,0:27:45.360
christmas before

0:27:42.720,0:27:45.919
halloween’s over i typically celebrate

0:27:45.360,0:27:48.399
christmas

0:27:45.919,0:27:49.679
on like when it f when december finally

0:27:48.399,0:27:51.200
rolls around

0:27:49.679,0:27:53.120
um i think then it would be an

0:27:51.200,0:27:55.279
appropriate time because

0:27:53.120,0:27:56.960
like you still have two major holidays

0:27:55.279,0:27:58.559
before you get to christmas and all the

0:27:56.960,0:28:00.080
other winter holidays but

0:27:58.559,0:28:02.159
i can understand people who want to

0:28:00.080,0:28:02.559
celebrate it earlier especially during

0:28:02.159,0:28:05.600
the

0:28:02.559,0:28:07.200
these times that they’d want to get that

0:28:05.600,0:28:09.440
happiness and joy that they feel from

0:28:07.200,0:28:10.720
those holidays right now that’s a good

0:28:09.440,0:28:12.559
point

0:28:10.720,0:28:13.840
the last question that i had for our

0:28:12.559,0:28:18.000
holiday traditions

0:28:13.840,0:28:21.840
is what is your fondest holiday memory

0:28:18.000,0:28:25.440
uh so

0:28:21.840,0:28:28.399
i can remember one year um where

0:28:25.440,0:28:31.200
i had actually um it was kind of

0:28:28.399,0:28:34.720
controversial to what i think now

0:28:31.200,0:28:37.440
i kind of wanted a puppy and now

0:28:34.720,0:28:39.360
being the cat person i am i don’t really

0:28:37.440,0:28:42.880
remember why i wanted a puppy

0:28:39.360,0:28:46.159
i just wanted a puppy i don’t know why

0:28:42.880,0:28:49.440
um and i had asked santa for it and

0:28:46.159,0:28:50.880
um and then he was like no get a cat

0:28:49.440,0:28:53.919
instead

0:28:50.880,0:28:55.279
no the president he gave me came with a

0:28:53.919,0:28:57.360
letter that said

0:28:55.279,0:28:58.720
sorry i couldn’t get you a real puppy

0:28:57.360,0:29:01.840
but he instead gave me

0:28:58.720,0:29:02.960
a stuffed puppy which i thought was

0:29:01.840,0:29:05.600
still

0:29:02.960,0:29:07.760
um really amazing it added to my stuffed

0:29:05.600,0:29:09.520
animal collection and although i

0:29:07.760,0:29:11.200
and honestly i wasn’t disappointed that

0:29:09.520,0:29:12.240
i didn’t even get a puppy did he blame

0:29:11.200,0:29:14.799
it on your parents

0:29:12.240,0:29:15.679
they wouldn’t let you get a puppy no i

0:29:14.799,0:29:18.320
don’t remember

0:29:15.679,0:29:18.799
but he just like apologized for not

0:29:18.320,0:29:21.120
being

0:29:18.799,0:29:22.000
but there’s no just apologized for not

0:29:21.120,0:29:23.840
um

0:29:22.000,0:29:26.399
for not getting me an actual puppy but

0:29:23.840,0:29:29.520
he thought that the stuffed animal would

0:29:26.399,0:29:31.760
at least um work and it did

0:29:29.520,0:29:33.120
nice well that was all we had for our

cupid very good that was a tough one

0:35:59.839,0:36:05.359
took me a moment which

0:36:02.960,0:36:07.300
country started the tradition of putting

0:36:05.359,0:36:10.519
up a christmas tree in the house

0:36:07.300,0:36:10.519
[Music]

0:36:10.560,0:36:14.640
you might not know this one uh no i

0:36:13.599,0:36:18.400
don’t think so

0:36:14.640,0:36:20.880
germany oh yes and then when

0:36:18.400,0:36:22.560
uh queen victoria married prince albert

0:36:20.880,0:36:25.119
of germany they started

0:36:22.560,0:36:27.280
the tradition in england putting up a

0:36:25.119,0:36:30.880
christmas tree

0:36:27.280,0:36:33.599
question 15 according to the song

0:36:30.880,0:36:34.240
what did my true love give to me on the

0:36:33.599,0:36:37.520
eighth

0:36:34.240,0:36:37.520
day of christmas

0:36:38.480,0:36:42.020
yeah i gotta go through that whole song

0:36:39.920,0:36:48.240
now

0:36:42.020,0:36:49.760
[Music]

0:36:48.240,0:36:51.440
it doesn’t have anything to do with your

0:36:49.760,0:36:55.839
brain games thing where you

0:36:51.440,0:36:55.839
tricked me though okay

0:36:59.040,0:37:05.440
oh my god i don’t think it’s a bird

0:37:02.400,0:37:08.160
it rhymes with silk milk

0:37:05.440,0:37:10.560
oh eight major milking yes there you go

0:37:08.160,0:37:10.560
good luck

0:37:11.920,0:37:17.119
question 16 why is fried food often

0:37:14.960,0:37:20.400
associated with hanukkah

0:37:17.119,0:37:22.000
because it contains oil like i mentioned

0:37:20.400,0:37:24.720
before which is

0:37:22.000,0:37:26.880
which relates to the story of hanukkah

0:37:24.720,0:37:28.480
where the maccabees only had enough oil

0:37:26.880,0:37:31.040
to light their candles

0:37:28.480,0:37:33.359
for one to light the menorah for one day

0:37:31.040,0:37:37.359
but it lasted for eight days

0:37:33.359,0:37:39.920
hence the miracle very good

0:37:37.359,0:37:41.040
question 17 this one’s a math one and

0:37:39.920,0:37:44.800
math is hard

0:37:41.040,0:37:47.119
okay how many gifts total were given

0:37:44.800,0:37:48.839
in the 12 days of christmas if you add

0:37:47.119,0:37:52.160
them all

0:37:48.839,0:37:56.960
up so 12 plus 11

0:37:52.160,0:38:00.320
would be 30 23

0:37:56.960,0:38:04.960
23 plus 10 would be 33

0:38:00.320,0:38:08.560
33 plus 9. you want a calculator

0:38:04.960,0:38:11.760
no take a guess no take a guess

0:38:08.560,0:38:19.839
we don’t have that much time uh

0:38:11.760,0:38:19.839
my gosh

0:38:21.040,0:38:27.520
no i don’t know 364.

0:38:24.560,0:38:29.119
ah yes it’s okay you don’t have to know

0:38:27.520,0:38:30.800
all these some of these are kind of

0:38:29.119,0:38:32.800
trick questions

0:38:30.800,0:38:35.359
like here’s an easy one how do you say

0:38:32.800,0:38:40.400

0:38:40.400,0:38:47.839
where is the largest reported menorah in

0:38:43.280,0:38:47.839

0:38:52.880,0:38:56.640
don’t know new york

0:38:54.480,0:38:57.680
ah actually the grand army plaza in new

0:38:56.640,0:39:00.880
york really

0:38:57.680,0:39:02.720
yep 20

0:39:00.880,0:39:04.000
and i only have 27 questions so we’re

0:39:02.720,0:39:06.079
almost there

0:39:04.000,0:39:08.880
what’s the name of the last ghost that

0:39:06.079,0:39:12.000
visits scrooge in a christmas carol

0:39:08.880,0:39:12.480
a future yet uh nope christmas yet to

0:39:12.000,0:39:14.480
come

0:39:12.480,0:39:16.720
very good not the ghost of christmas

0:39:14.480,0:39:18.079
future yeah like everyone else refers to

0:39:16.720,0:39:21.599
it

0:39:18.079,0:39:22.560
21 visions of what food danced in

0:39:21.599,0:39:25.200
children’s head

0:39:22.560,0:39:26.240
as they slept in the poem twas the night

0:39:25.200,0:39:29.599
before christmas

0:39:26.240,0:39:32.800
visions of sugar plums very good

0:39:29.599,0:39:34.160
22 what was frosty the snowman’s nose

0:39:32.800,0:39:37.280
made out of

0:39:34.160,0:39:39.520
coal no carrot

0:39:37.280,0:39:39.520
no

0:39:40.320,0:39:44.720
run down the list of accessories um

0:39:45.359,0:39:51.920
a button a button right

0:39:48.720,0:39:57.119
question 23 is hanukkah the most

0:39:51.920,0:39:59.359
important jewish holiday on the calendar

0:39:57.119,0:39:59.359
uh

0:40:01.520,0:40:10.000
i’m going to

0:40:05.040,0:40:12.640
guess that would be a good guess because

0:40:10.000,0:40:14.720
holidays like passover and rosh hashanah

0:40:12.640,0:40:15.280
are more significant religiously i was

0:40:14.720,0:40:17.040
gonna say

0:40:15.280,0:40:20.319
passover is probably more significant

0:40:17.040,0:40:23.839
than hanukkah absolutely

0:40:20.319,0:40:24.240
question 24 what popular christmas song

0:40:23.839,0:40:27.680
was

0:40:24.240,0:40:30.880
actually written for thanksgiving uh

0:40:27.680,0:40:31.599
jingle bells correct how did you know

0:40:30.880,0:40:35.040
that

0:40:31.599,0:40:36.480
um i actually knew that from music

0:40:35.040,0:40:38.000
they actually talked about when we were

0:40:36.480,0:40:40.079
learning jingle bells that it was

0:40:38.000,0:40:42.400
actually made for thanksgiving

0:40:40.079,0:40:43.760
nice because it doesn’t specify anything

0:40:42.400,0:40:47.280
christmas related it just

0:40:43.760,0:40:48.640
specifies winter and um

0:40:47.280,0:40:50.319
thanksgiving doesn’t actually occur in

0:40:48.640,0:40:53.359
winter yeah but

0:40:50.319,0:40:55.359
right yeah but it used to snow in during

0:40:53.359,0:40:57.760
thanksgiving that’s true

0:40:55.359,0:41:00.079
question 25 what are christmas trees

0:40:57.760,0:41:06.400
also called and it has to do with the

0:41:00.079,0:41:09.359

what’s the name of the pagan holiday

0:41:09.359,0:41:15.280
pagan holiday

0:41:12.000,0:41:17.119
what’s the name of the log yololog yule

0:41:15.280,0:41:18.880

0:46:06.800,0:46:10.880
surprised by all your gifts

0:46:08.640,0:46:12.000
be surprised like i said i don’t like

0:46:10.880,0:46:15.280
knowing things

0:46:12.000,0:46:15.839
okay well at least you know related to

0:46:15.280,0:46:18.880
this

0:46:15.839,0:46:19.200
so here’s a strange one would you rather

0:46:18.880,0:46:23.119
be

0:46:19.200,0:46:25.280
a human minora or a human dreidel

0:46:23.119,0:46:26.839
oh

0:46:25.280,0:46:30.400
[Music]

0:46:26.839,0:46:33.680
um i guess a

0:46:30.400,0:46:35.440
human menorah okay

0:46:33.680,0:46:37.280
but yeah i mean it’s either

0:46:35.440,0:46:38.480
uncomfortable holding eight candles or

0:46:37.280,0:46:41.920
spinning around all day

0:46:38.480,0:46:43.200
yeah would you rather go for a ride on

0:46:41.920,0:46:46.400
santa’s sleigh

0:46:43.200,0:46:49.440
or take a trip on the polar express

0:46:46.400,0:46:53.119
the waller express i don’t like heights

0:46:49.440,0:46:53.599
i can’t argue with that would you rather

0:46:53.119,0:46:55.359
light

0:46:53.599,0:46:57.119
eight candles the first night of

0:46:55.359,0:46:59.680
hanukkah and count down

0:46:57.119,0:47:00.960
or light one candle the first night and

0:46:59.680,0:47:02.960
count up

0:47:00.960,0:47:05.200
one candle the first night and count up

0:47:02.960,0:47:06.400
it looked it it’s weird when you count

0:47:05.200,0:47:08.240
like down i think

0:47:06.400,0:47:11.520
and it looks very impressive at the end

0:47:08.240,0:47:14.800
of the eight nights too

0:47:11.520,0:47:18.880
would you rather have a snowy christmas

0:47:14.800,0:47:21.920
or a hot christmas with no snow at all

0:47:18.880,0:47:24.079
oh snowy christmas i would too i like

0:47:21.920,0:47:26.160
the cold better than the warmth and the

0:47:24.079,0:47:29.200
and snow always looks so mesmerizing on

0:47:26.160,0:47:31.280
the ground yeah it does

0:47:29.200,0:47:32.480
would you rather only be able to eat

0:47:31.280,0:47:37.359
latke or

0:47:32.480,0:47:40.960
never eat latke again vodka what’s that

0:47:37.359,0:47:42.000
potato pancakes i probably never eat

0:47:40.960,0:47:44.240
laca again

0:47:42.000,0:47:46.960
uh you’re not a big fan of them yeah not

0:47:44.240,0:47:49.359
really that’s okay

0:47:46.960,0:47:50.640
would you rather volunteer as a mall

0:47:49.359,0:47:54.160
santa

0:47:50.640,0:47:57.680
or in a live nativity with livestock

0:47:54.160,0:48:01.839
um i guess some all santa

0:47:57.680,0:48:07.200
okay would you rather get a useful gift

0:48:01.839,0:48:11.040
or a fun gift um

0:48:07.200,0:48:13.200
i guess a fun gift i would too

0:48:11.040,0:48:14.319
would you rather star on a popular

0:48:13.200,0:48:17.200
holiday music

0:48:14.319,0:48:18.000
single or star in a popular holiday

0:48:17.200,0:48:20.240
movie

0:48:18.000,0:48:21.440
about your holiday movie i don’t really

0:48:20.240,0:48:24.160
know how to sing

0:48:21.440,0:48:25.620
well i know how to sing but i don’t like

0:48:24.160,0:48:28.650
i don’t know how to sing well

0:48:25.620,0:48:28.650
[Music]

0:48:28.960,0:48:33.359
uh where are we at oh 18. would you

0:48:32.160,0:48:35.839
rather vacation

0:48:33.359,0:48:37.920
someplace cold or hot during the

0:48:35.839,0:48:40.940
holidays now last year we did someplace

0:48:37.920,0:48:45.119
relatively warm yeah um

0:48:40.940,0:48:47.920
[Music]

0:48:45.119,0:48:49.359
uh kind of cold i like the cold better

0:48:47.920,0:48:50.800
than i like the heat

0:48:49.359,0:48:52.480
so that question is really more long

0:48:50.800,0:48:53.839
lines and would you rather vacation

0:48:52.480,0:48:56.559
someplace cold

0:48:53.839,0:48:56.559
or disney

0:48:57.920,0:49:04.510
would you rather donate money or time

0:49:01.040,0:49:08.229
during the holidays um

0:49:04.510,0:49:08.229
[Music]

0:49:08.240,0:49:10.720
i think

0:49:11.520,0:49:14.720
that’s kind of difficult because both

0:49:13.119,0:49:18.240
can really help people

0:49:14.720,0:49:21.119
that’s true i’m on the fence

0:49:18.240,0:49:23.359
okay well we’ll pretend we didn’t answer

0:49:21.119,0:49:25.680
that question then

0:49:23.359,0:49:26.559
would you rather eat christmas dinner at

0:49:25.680,0:49:28.720
home or

0:49:26.559,0:49:30.640
help serve christmas dinner to those who

0:49:28.720,0:49:33.119
are less fortunate

0:49:30.640,0:49:34.079
um help serve those who are less

0:49:33.119,0:49:36.640
fortunate

0:49:34.079,0:49:37.280
mommy’s normally the cook for our family

0:49:36.640,0:49:41.040
and

0:49:37.280,0:49:46.000
i and i think helping um other people

0:49:41.040,0:49:48.480
would hopefully help the world out okay

0:49:46.000,0:49:49.920
would you rather be best friends with

0:49:48.480,0:49:52.240
