I can’t wait until the Sochi Winter Games will come. Why do I love the Olympic Games so much?
Is it the different games that they put that make it interesting? Is it the pretty fireworks that each nation does that every four years? Maybe… or maybe I just love when the entire nations come together and compete for the glory of their country. It is the feeling that we all get when our nations get together and compete to see who’s the best; and maybe one of your friends will poke fun of which nation will win on a sled bob tournament. I have always done this to my friends to see which nation will win on any events they were on.
I like the sensation of having my friends and family get together and remembering their heritage of when they were born and raised. Is the accomplishment that we all want to rise together as one nation! Plus I always love the open and close ceremony of each nation, seeing what they will show off next.
Now I’m exaggerating with all this since I don’t watch every episode on the hour of every day. But when special events come every four years I usually stick to the opening ceremony and watch a few sports events, then leave it and come back to the ending ceremony. I think maybe every person should watch the opening ceremony at least once so that they will remember in their young age about that time; it is just something to retain some happy memory on spending that particular time with someone else.
That day will be exciting for me! Hope everybody will stay warm and cozy with their close ones, because love will be in the air soon!
Fun Fact: Sochi is a city from Russia and is the largest resort region of the Russian Federalist.
