Top 10 Best Holidays


The Top Ten

1 Christmas

Christmas is the best holiday. You all have to agree with me here... not just about the gifts and blah blah blah... but about the tradition and the Christmas Spirit. I'm Catholic, so I believe Christmas is the birth of Jesus Christ and none of us humans would be here without him. I love the Christmas movies you can watch and you get to enjoy opening gifts. Going to bed at night dreaming of Santa and his reindeer on your roof, delivering presents down you chimney. Leaving milk and cookies for Santa and everything else. Waking up in the morning to a room full of presents and believing that it's magic. Christmas brings families together in all sorts of different ways. Also, it gets children to behave. HO-HO-HO MERRY Christmas!

I love this holiday, is my Number 1 favorite holiday. This isn't only about the presents you get under your tree (if you have one.) It's about the Christmas spirit, Jesus's birthday, and giving gifts to people you love. It is also fun to visit family members, eat good food, and sing Christmas carols. I'm just not sure if Santa is actually real or not. I want to know. It can convince children to behave. You can leave cookies and milk on a table, and Santa might eat and drink it when he comes down your chimney (if you have a fireplace and a chimney. It is probably unknown how Santa gets in a house without a chimney.) Santa is jolly, and can make people jolly. Merry Christmas, everybody. Christmas is the best holiday ever!

Christmas is by far my favorite Holiday. People just seem happier. It's like there is something magic in the air. My favorite parts are decorating with all the colorful lights. I also like going to a tree farm and chopping down a tree to put in our living room, plus putting a little fake one in my room. I really like to give gifts. And when you go to sleep, you think about Santa eating the cookies and drinking the milk. Then he leaves gifts under the tree. My all time favorite part of this holiday is the preparations and the anticipation. - Curtis_Huber

I personally don't like Christmas. Kids are spoiled enough ya know. Christmas ain't in the bibble

2 Halloween

I just love halloween. You get to go out and dress up as whatever you want to, scare people, get scared, get delicious treats, watch horror movies and all that. I also love the days leading up to halloween because of cider donuts, country stores, haunted houses, pumpkin patches and so many other fun and cozy things to do. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday.

Halloween rules you get free candy and you get to go out in costumes and have fun. It was hard choosing between this and Christmas but something about Halloween just makes me like it the best.

Halloween is by far the best holiday there is! You get to scare people, watch horror movies, ( I do those first too anyway) you get free candy and its cool outside and its freaky fun!

I'm such a fan of the theme and the fact that it's in my favorite season is pretty much a win-win for me. - ezylemon

3 Birthday

You get treated like a god, you get presents, you can do whatever you want, etc. Also you get more rights when you get older. Like when I turned 13 I get permission to stay home alone. And in 5 days I turn 14 and will be allowed FACEBOOK. I've wanted Facebook for at least 7 years, not exaggerating. (As of July 2017) - Lunala

Birthdays are pretty fun! You get treated like a king or queen (depending on your gender). You get gifts, you can do whatever you want, and you get more rights as you get older. I always look forward to my birthday. - Stazemar000

Birthday is fun. You do get candy on Halloween, but presents are better and you become a year older on your birthday! - Jackthetoptenguy5

You can get treated like you,re the king using your army of Birthday presents to fight a war against other presents and even get to pig out on cake and eat all of it until you get full.

4 Thanksgiving

What in the world! This should be number one. You get the family time just like Christmas but with better food and the children focus on thankfulness rather than their selfish desires. Halloween should not even be on here because it is not even a holiday. Can't beat thanksgiving though.

Yes it's a great holiday but, Christmas isn't meant to be greedy over presents it's meant to celebrate the day of Jesus's birth!

Seriously! This holiday is better than Halloween, what with Shaving Cream. Also, why is Valentine's Day Above this. Thanksgiving is in the beautiful Autumn, while Valentine's Day falls right in the middle of winter! - Curtis_Huber

Thanksgiving for me is trolling around being bored on our laptops while the adults have their boring talk. I hate this holiday. - Captaincrunch2015

I don't like this holiday that much, especially if you don't like them and have to hold back from starting a fight with one of my cousins. - ezylemon

7 Valentine's Day

Why would you like Valentines day, its just another normal day where single people feel bad about them selves when they don't have a date and when you do have a date you always end up brokenhearted.

I hate this holiday (even though I got a date that day) - Captaincrunch2015

Whoever put this on here is selfish. Think about single people, you idiot.

I like valentines day...its not just about being in a relationship, you know! :/ It's a good day to show people you care about them. Also, I admit, I'm a sucker for all the pink (pink is my favorite color). It makes me sad to read the comments on this one...I mean, yes, relationships are wonderful. But you should still enjoy this holiday even without relationships, along with christmas its basicly a day about love :D Just with a bit more pink, which honestly makes me smile haha. There's not enough love in the world, so two days for caring about and loving others is great in my book.

...Now if only we could just all be friends even when it isn't a holiday...

9 Independence Day

Talk about patriotism. you can have a pool party or a firework show or just some gathering. its like new years eve but you don't even have to make resolutions and you can go swimming

I liked this because it an only holiday to legally pop firecracker

Kicks new years eve in the butt

Having a pool party and it’s the middle of summer which means that u can stay up whenever we want. Me for instance always stays up til 4 AM on July 4.. If this was on a school day, we wouldn’t have this much fun! It would be just like Halloween in which my district doesn’t have a holiday on halloween
