Favorite Holidays


The Top Ten

1 Christmas

Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday. There is something magical about this time of year that I can't explain. Even though I spend a lot of time with my family, Christmas just makes it feel extra special. I love giving gifts to my family, it's always better to give them receive.
Another aspect I enjoy during Christmas is all the lights and decorations. I love to decorate the tree with my family, it's a special time. I also enjoy all the Christmas specials and movies, especially "Home Alone" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas." Disneyland is also a great place to spend the holidays, with all the decorations and events.
Christmas is just a warm time of the year, it makes me feel better about myself, and the world. I like to give back to those who are less fortunate, not just on Christmas, but throughout the year as well.

I love Christmas, you get so many nice things from it. It is the Jesus's birthday, we get winter break, we get presents, we get to spend time with family, and that is just the beginning. I don't believe in Santa Claus but I respect those of you who do. Even know I don't believe in him, I like his story, just make sure kids don't believe in him for TOO long, or else your kids will grow up not giving presents to their kids. But I still love Christmas. You also get to decorate a tree, listen to Christmas music, watch a Christmas movie, and al the other stuff people around the world do on Christmas. I'm considering Christmas the 25th of December so it may still be in the middle of Hanukkah, but I don't know because I celebrate Christmas instead. I respect your opinion though. - MarioMaster101

Christmas will always be my favorite holiday. Everything about Christmas makes me feel warm and fills me to the brim with joy such as the Presents, the gorgeous Christmas music on the radio, Santa, Being with my family, and Jesus being born on that day. This time of year is usually the time where people give to those who are less fortunate. Lights are strung everywhere and makes everything bright. Christmas specials, such as A Charlie Brown Christmas, Home Alone, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Frosty the Snowman, and The Miracle on 34th street are on and fill my house with laughs and happiness. Snow dances down from the sky and the ground has just the right amount of snow on it. And, next to getting presents, my favorite thing is that people can be together and feel happy. Christmas is the best holiday ever!

Christmas is not about presents but the holiday where you love one another and have a holiday wonderful holiday feast and have a good time, presents is not always the answer - BigFatNoob

2 Halloween

For me Halloween has always been my favorite holiday whether it's dressing up, scaring my friends, or a wicked cool Halloween party. Its just a great holiday and should be number 1 in my opinion.

I love Halloween with trick or treating, but my mom and dad told me that these people will give terrible candy with metal in it, so I didn't do it with my friends anymore, I am 18 by the way - BigFatNoob

I like type 2 diabetes

The only thing I don't like about it is getting tricked. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

3 Thanksgiving

The mouth watering steak, turkey, smashed potatoes and gravy but I am thankful to God that I am still living - BigFatNoob

Way better than Halloween.
Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what you have and fellowship with friends and family. Halloween, in my opinion, is fun but not as good because it's just about getting scared and eating sugar.

It's way better than Halloween, but not as good as Christmas

We don't have Thanksgiving where I live. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

4 Easter

Easter over Thanksgiving not every country celebrates Thanksgiving or even knows what it is except is it just eating and watching television.
Easter originally Ostara if the Bible hadn't appeared is originally about fertility with Easter eggs and the Easter Bunny.

Eew, I hate easter rabbits pooping eggs - BigFatNoob

Also love this holiday. My third favourite holiday. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Fun fact: the Easter bunny isn't real.

5 Independence Day

Soothing holiday - BigFatNoob

Yay Independence Day is so fun and it is by far the best holiday in the history of America

Fire works yay - BigFatNoob

Independence Day is my favorite holiday and by far the best holiday ever.

6 New Year's Day

More fire works - BigFatNoob

Yeah. New Year's good, but after it ends, you have to get back to your normal, boring, and depressing schedule.

It's the day where we all have a fresh new year, with new problems (in a good way), new adventures and a fresh start. Yet you still celebrate with the same loving family and friends

My favorite holiday!

7 New Year's Eve

I love staying up till midnight ( even though I'm not one of those who drinks beer. I'm just a kid.) and watching new hosts (and this time, beautiful hosts Ryan Seacrest lol! )

ball drop

I like New Years Eve because it's a new fresh start to the year and that's when the ball drops in New York

You stay up until midnight and watch the ball drop. I like it

8 Christmas Eve

It's about to begin yay - BigFatNoob

Should be shared with Christmas cause some proper celebrate them as the same (my family)

Christmas Eve is a awesome day because you are so excited to see your family and a bunch of gifts! It is better than Christmas Day because after it is over that is it, then the magic excited feeling is gone. So Christmas Eve is the best holiday EVER!

I get most of my presents on Christmas Eve, so this is my equivalent to Christmas Day! Plus, the ambiance of Christmas is WONDERFUL.

9 Valentine's Day

Meh, that one girl stop being obsessed with me two weeks after Valentines day when I gave her roses - BigFatNoob

I always give flowers and chocolates to my friends it is my favorite thing to do

These are valentines which make people the most important of all the life on Earth

This is my favorite holiday, even though I've never been in a relationship with anyone at this time of year, which is kinda sad but I still like it. - Meg21

The Contenders

11 Birthday

This is my favorite, some years it exciting like mine was a few days ago when I turned 20, and in 2017 when I turned 18, and 2015 when I turned 16

This should be higher because in your birthday you get treated well

For your birthday you usually get cake or some sort of treat. On top of that you also get to go to one of your favorite places. ALSO, you get presents.

This is my favorite

12 Earth Day

Save the earth - BigFatNoob

I love Earth Day. It is my favorite. We get to clean to make this world a better place.

They said the point of earth day is to not use electricity or gas but I just waste time using every electronic. Still, nobody hates me for that. - Captaincrunch2015

This day is good because it encourages people to treat the earth well!

13 St. Patrick's Day

Sadly it's not leprechauns day, it's Saint Patrick's Day. It's a feast day for a Catholic saint, best known for converting native Irish to Christianity. Until the 1700s, it was a day in the Catholic calendar in observance of a saint important to and popular in Ireland… and not much anywhere else. - BigFatNoob

It's my birthday on this day

Love this holiday

The amount of drunk people on St. Patrick's Day is hilarious!

This holiday is very important because we remember the soldiers who sacrificed themselves to fight for our country.

This should be on our mind EVERY day.

To me it's the best.

It doesn't really do anything...

20 Hug a Short Person Day

How do you qualify as "short"? Like, being 2 or more inches below average or something? - TheInsomniac

As a short person, I find this offensive because everyone is equal and I have no problem being short but I don't like it when people put me in a different category because I am short.

This is a holiday? I'll have to look it up.

I want a short person so I don't have a great that holiday

21 Good Friday

When I was little my family brought fish and chips for Good Friday like always. Back when Fish and Chips wasn't fake food that gave me food poisoning, ugh I miss the OLD fish and chips (in my local area) - Lunala

Because you can go to get ice creme sweet frog go home eat your ice creme

No school for that day at all! lot of fun! - davenport

Best holiday!

How do you pronounce

26 Hanukkah

This stupid holyday is the reason why we can't say "happy christmas" because jews get jealous.


This holiday is the greatest ever. It's a lot like Christmas but eight times as many presents.

The presents aren't as cool as everyone outside of Judaism seems to think since there's a limit of eight and the quality of the gifts are anywhere from decent to trash. But the family time is awesome, so I love Chanukah. (Yeah, I spelled it the Jewy way) - Aweso

27 Autumn Equinox

The leaves start falling!

First they change colors. They don't really fall until Mid-November (where I live)! - Curtis_Huber


28 Chinese New Years

Best reason to be Chinese
I got like $300 once

I love Chinese New Year because we kids get money in red envelopes from relatives and we have parties and eat lots of food!

All the fire crackers, chasing the bad luck away, who doesn't like that

Never really celebrate it. We should next year!

29 Vietnamese New Year

Yes because I am Vietnamese and on Vietnamese near year we get money and pray and honor our annchesters

It's nice honoring presidents which is the good part, but I need president Herbert Hoover like I need a hole in the head.

It Used to Be March 4 but now it's January 20

I'm off from school on this day so yeah - Mcgillacuddy

Me and my friends always act like this is a huge holiday as a joke.

Love the groundhogs. - davenport

Happy holidays! I love holidays! holidays are fun!

It's a holiday between halloween before and the next halloween, it's on May the 1st.
