What Home Means to Me

What Home Means to Me.

My home is not like anybody else’s. It’s my favorite place to be. It makes me happy. I do my favorite thing there. My home is a cold place. Every home is different for everybody. My home is the hockey arena. It’s where my mom, dad and brother can watch me play hockey .

My home is the hockey arena because it is my favorite place to be because I meet new friends. I have been to many hockey arenas but they are all my home. When I play hockey in the arena I feel happy and proud of myself when I come in from my shift and say I tried my best and did what I could.

When I walk into the arena I smell fries from the canteen. I hear skates clashing on the ice. I hear my mom shouting ’’ Good job !’’ and “ Go Placentia Lions!’’

The difference between a house and a home is a house is a structure with walls and a roof. A home can be a feeling or a building. Houses can be bought or built but the feeling of home stays with you forever.
