With the holidays right around the corner, many are preparing their lists of traditional, or new food choices. There are many different activities with food prep that many enjoy, or even dislike. Here are the holiday prep skills and food choices at a variety throughout the students and teachers at Edmond North.

Eleanor Harris is a sophomore who enjoys the holiday season. She starts preparing for Hanukkah in December.

“I prefer prepping for Hanukkah because it’s super fun to cook,” Harris said. “My favorite food is Latkes with applesauce.”

For her, preparing food for the holidays isn’t an easy task, but it’s also not a stressful event.

“I think that food prepping for the holidays is really fun,” Harris said. “It gets me excited for the holiday to begin and I like helping out.”

Kennedy Williams, another sophomore who enjoys cooking, enjoys preparation for Thanksgiving.

“I love prepping food for Thanksgiving because it really is all about the food, [for example the stuffing and green bean casserole],” Williams said. “On Christmas, you have presents and other [events] that take the attention away from the food.”

Williams also enjoys the prepping time, as long as the work is divided amongst other family members.

“With enough help from other family members, prepping food is really fun. I also personally enjoy cooking,” Williams said.

In the end, the holidays are the busiest times, but for a lot of people, enjoying the “hustle and bustle” of the season is a happy and enjoyable time to spend with family and friends.
