With summer coming to a close, and a new school year starting, some like to reflect on the summer that just passed and the memories that were made during that summer. Each family has their traditions whether it be simple or not it's still their something they continue annually. Some families have a certain state they go to every summer and others just like watching movies or going to an amusement park together.
When talking with different people, a lot of the traditions were based around spending time with their family.
“My favorite summer tradition is go to Siesta Key, Florida for vacation with my family,” says junior Hannah Jirles.
Another John Glenn student also enjoys taking a trip somewhere with their family during the hot summer days.
Jacob Blair said “My favorite summer tradition is going to beach in North Carolina and spending time with my family and also playing basketball.”
Although traveling is a fun experience, especially with loved ones, you don't have to leave the state to have a tradition. There are plenty of fun things to do with your family in the state! There are amazing hiking trails such as Old Man’s Cave at Hocking Hills or a drive in movie theatre in Lancaster. One student that has a tradition that resides within the state is Lyndi Slack.
“My favorite summer tradition is that my cousins and I go to an amusement park once a year,” says Slack.
Another student, Abby Dickson, also enjoys what this state has to offer and said “My favorite thing to do during summer is going to Zoombezi Bay.”
You do not have to be in a different state or at a beach to have fun. There is plenty of ways to make your own tradition at home with your family and the people you love. There is so much to do even right where you live. You can go outside or even stay inside as long as you are making memories that will last a lifetime. So when next summer comes around, don’t be afraid to start a new tradition with friends or family.
