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.

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 the best, baby jesus was born on this wonderful day, and remember baby jesus died and was tortured just 4 us and our sins, we get to eat Christmas cookies and drink hot coco santa clause comes and gets you some presents and stuffs your stocking, you get to watch Christmas movies an sing fun Christmas songs but it is not about the presents it is about baby jesus and his birthday.

The Love that radiates from people doing the Christmas season somehow cannot equal other times of the year. Christmas still remains a very mystical holiday for that reason. It tends to bring out the best in even the most Stone hearted persons transforming them into caring considerate sharing human beings.

2 Halloween

Halloween is the best. Not because of the candy or trick or treating but because of the scary. I am a haunter. I love scary things. Halloween is my life! The whole feel of the holiday. All the spookiness. The orange and purple lights. Driving down the street and seeing cobwebs, strobes, black lights, and best of all, monsters! As some may think Halloween is evil, this is faulse. It was a day to scare away demons and respect the dead. Halloween is just a spooky holiday all should enjoy.

Best holiday ever! Halloween isn't only a holiday to me but it is a lifestyle! I am a haunter, I celebrate Halloween all year long. Halloween props and decorations constantly fill my room! I love the whole feel of Halloween. The decorations, the monsters, the killing, the gore, the blood, the evil, scary, dark, and depressing feel is a holiday no other can give! It is also the most unique holiday! While all the other holidays are about happy things, Halloween is about sad and scary things! It is my life!

The day after my birthday - double candy n' stuff!

Trick or treat

3 Thanksgiving

A time to bring together your entire family and reunite over a table fill of food and warmth. Why isn't this everyone's favorite holiday? Its an important reminder to be thankful for all of things you have been fortunate enough to have, and I mean not just materialistically. Seriously, tons of food, family, and not to mention the enormous sales the very next day.

I really like Thanksgiving because it is a day of rejoicing and thanking God for all His mercies and gifts. It is so special to get together with family over a well set table with a thankful heart.

Thanksgiving is another holiday that is relaxing just like Easter! Instead of getting gifts and candy, you get a big banquet of food! I also like waking up and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Thanksgiving is a time to get the entire family and eat tons of food!

Eat lots of delicious food; have a week off of school; watch football.

4 Easter

This is my favorite. Spring is my season when everything comes back to life after the winter. It is a time when my family gets together and has a great time without the worries of gift giving.

Easter is today March 27th 2016 and it is special because Christ rose from the dead! It is also a beautiful day always and it is not as BIG as Christmas. Easter is relaxing day to spend with your family and get candy and meet the (Easter Bunny! )

I've always liked Easter because I get to see my whole family at one time again and we have a big, tasty meal. I also like it because it always tells you that it will only get warmer from there! I have to say, though, I don't like it as much as Christmas

Easter bunny is coming again in April 1st 2018. - davenport

5 Independence Day

I love looking to the sky and seeing the fireworks! You can smell the burgers and hot dogs being cooked and we can look back and thank the men who helped to form the beautiful country we all know as America. I'm so proud to be an American! :D

Still to this day I can't enjoy a firework show without noticing all the pollution it causes. All in all, the buildup is great, as well as the happiness everyone seems to have. - Donut

4th of July... my favorite! Look into the sky, with the one you love and a bottle of wine... Perfect! On a boat with music helps too.. laugh out loud

Love it. no school for that day! it's a lot of fun to light up firecracker.s - davenport

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

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! )

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

So much fun!

8 Christmas Eve

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.

Best day of the year. Way better than Christmas! If you believe that Christmas is better than Christmas Eve then you just haven't noticed how boring Christmas becomes throughout the day and how exciting Christmas Eve is. - Donut

I get to open one gift every one hour and I live in the Philippines so I have Noche Buena and the food is so delicious and the following day you get to open your last gift/s and you get what you want from Santa Claus and I like staying up late,staying with my family and friends,opening presents,etc.This should be #1 cause you get toys for free and I also like Halloween cause you go around in a costume getting candy from all the hoises in your neighbourhood and the best thing of all you get to eat them!
P.S birthdays suck the only thing I get is cake and a birthday card that says HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sister is luckier cause her birthday is celebrated at school and she gets gifts the only time I received gifts was on my 1st and 8th birthday.

12 Mother's Day

So underrated, it is a very peaceful holiday that isn't made into such a big deal with commercials and holiday specials - each

13 Memorial Day

To me it's the best.

It doesn't really do anything...

no school! - davenport

14 Hanukkah

Hanukkah rocks. You spend time with your family and get presents.

As a Jew, I feel that Hanukkah doesn't get as much attention as Christmas. No Hanukkah songs playing on "holiday" radio, and nothing else either.

As a Jew, I feel like this a holiday worth celebrating! It celebrates a miracle for Jews!

This is way better than Christmas. Also why are April Fools Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Valentine's Day above this? - 445956

15 Earth Day

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!

Hey! Without Earth we would be dead!

I love earth day! - davenport

19 Hug a Short Person Day

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
