My object is a wooden statue of Jesus Christ. It is from Mexico. My mom, brother, and I use it for praying. 
This statue is very important to me and my family because we are Christians. It shows we are Christians and what it means to be  Christian like being kind and helpful. My family also celebrates the Day of the Dead also known as Dia de Los Muertos. During that time we go to church and we light candles in front of the door. We also celebrate the Day of the Kids also known as el Dia de Los Ninos. My mom buys a type of bread called Rozca. It is a circular bread and has little plastic dolls inside. It hurts if you bite into them!
Where did my family get the Jesus statue? How long has my family had this statue? My feelings about the Jesus statue are very good and I love it. It is very important to my family because it is part of my culture.
