Top 10 Best 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 is a wonderful time of the year, Christmas is my mom s birthday and my birthday is right after my mom. I am a winter baby, just like Jesus was! Christmas is wonderful holiday to enjoy with your family. My favorite part of Christmas is opening presents with a thing of Hot chocolate and listening wonderful Christmas songs like Angels we have hear on high, silent night, Here we come a Caroling, Chestnuts burning over a open fire, Jingle bell rock, Let it snow, Christmas morning and There was a little baby. Sometimes my potluck friends have a Christmas party and I really love them. So you could say that Christmas is a special favorite of mine, since I even spend Christmas with my friends as well as my parents knowing that my birthday is around the next bend

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!

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

2 Halloween

Halloween has the best season around it. I get really excited not so much for the holiday itself, but for the season.

Halloween is my second favorite holiday.

The only day of the year I don't have to pay for candy - edentheace

Best holiday

3 Thanksgiving

I really love Thanksgiving, I get to spend time with my Beckerman family! Sometimes we would play a special game, who ever finds the matza cracker first, so who ever finds It first gets paid by my uncle Steve and it is a lot of fun. I really love the smell of the turkey on Thanksgiving and it is so good especially when it is made by my Aunt Nancy! I remember having a tickle fight with my Cousin Cole, we had a lot of fun when we get together! In my opinion, Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday because Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful! I am so very thankful for my Beckerman family and the smell of turkey and for tickle fights with my cousins!

This is like turkey day. - TerryThebestsoccerplayer

No one every cares about this holiday, only me.

So I'm from the UK so I've never done Thanksgiving and it's not that great from what I've heard. I never liked Turkey anyways

4 Easter

Easter is the best in my opinion hifing eggs I find money but lots of it

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

5 Independence Day

Fire works yay - BigFatNoob

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

Soothing holiday - BigFatNoob

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

6 New Year's Day

I will still have a break for 2 weeks. - TerryThebestsoccerplayer

I like Chinese New Year too not just the American new year

More fire works - BigFatNoob

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 getting insomnia the next day

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! )

You stay up past midnight, and scream your head off and cry like a baby.
And you see fireworks that give you a concussion and at the end, you're blind and deaf.

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

8 Valentine's Day

Not a good holiday, but it is one of the most popular...

Hey toptenners hope your crushes likes you. - TerryThebestsoccerplayer

Dumbest holiday ever!

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

9 Christmas Eve

It's about to begin yay - BigFatNoob

The day before Christmas is always a blast

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

At night I wake up and deliver presents

10 St. Patrick's Day

My great Nan was born on that day

I don't think leprechauns exist

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


The Contenders

11 Mother's Day

Because all of us care for our mom and we love her

I love my mommy!

I love my momma - BigFatNoob

I love my mommy so much it’s not even funny - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

12 Earth Day

This holiday should be more popular. We need to pay attention and respect and treat our beloved Planet Earth well! We don't have a Planet B, so we really need to try and save our wonderful home planet.
Yay for Earth Day!

NO THERE IS MORE LIFE OUTSIDE OF EARTH! But we should still respect Earth.

Save the earth - BigFatNoob

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

13 Father's Day


I celebrate my pap because my idiotic father I never seen again since I was 4 moved far from my home. The only time I was gifted from him was when I got video games on my bday. I got dead space, alien isolation, and I think I got call of duty black ops 2. They were good games but he’s been good now because he sent me 2000$ - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

I understand I really really do Father's Day ideas to celebrate my mother's.

Father's Day and Mother's Day are tied both are awesome Father's Day is awesome love it

14 Hanukkah

Hanukkah is one of the best holidays..dear christians, please stop saying Hanukkah is the " jewish Christmas"

Merry Christmas sounds more like marry Christmas - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

Because it sucks.

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

15 Canada Day

I love Canada Day my family friends and I watch fireworks all night long. Definitely my favourite even if a lot of people don’t agree.

This day is my birthday! YAY

16 Labor Day

It my favorite holiday because you never have to work at all. and it a good day off for Americans.

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

17 Memorial Day

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...

18 Hug a Short Person Day

I am a short person! thanks for the hugs!

Talking trolls here I think :/ - Firegirl110

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.

19 Opposite Day

Yay go spongebob

If it was Opposite Day, we'd be dead

This was invented by SpongeBob. - Goatworlds

Best part about opposite day is that it can happen anytime. Surprise attack, I hate you! - Donut

20 Boxing Day

Christmas finishes on Christmas Day. It's followed by Boxing Day. If you don't have a holiday for it, move to another country.

It's the British and Australian name for the day after Christmas. - JayJayPlane

What In the world is boxing day?

It is a holiday in Canada its one day after Christmas

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

22 Pi Day

We all love our great symbol that represents Radius 1

Absolutely I'll wear my pi t-shirt every this holiday and I really hate they celebrate the other version of pi..! - Kevinsidis

27 Veterans Day

This special holiday is a wonderful time to remember the people who fought so bravely on the battlefields! Veterans are heroes, My grandpa Poppe was a war veteran a long time ago and I couldn't be more proud of him! Veterans day means to think about people that we love. I really love Veterans day because I always think of my Grandpa, my war veteran hero!

I am a Veteran so it the one day a year I get free food at thousands of restaurants

Yeah. They deserve some love. Give the confidence to do good on the battlefield.

Lets serve these veterans

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

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

Because its a Holiday. After you have fun tell yur parents you love them and it was a great day.

38 Victoria Day
39 Groundhog Day

Groundhog day is AWESOME!

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

My favorite. No shopping, no gifts to wrap, no need to decorate. Just enjoy your favorite "ground" hog-(sausage) & the groundhog does the rest.

I don't get the point of this holiday. A groundhog seeing its shadow? That's pretty dumb.

40 Halfoween

Half way to Halloween, here we comea - BorisRule

You don't need to wait a whole year til Halloween, so Halfoween is right in front of you, it falls on May 1.

I had just read about Bieber here, and this is his birthday... ☹️

It's a holiday between halloween before and the next halloween, it's on May the 1st.
It was invented because people were impatient about when the next halloween would come up.

41 Festivus

A Festivus for the Rest of Us

Cool holiday!

Nah.I hate this holiday. Shofars are animal abuse. Why couldn't the poor ram just have his horns? - Ihateschool

Some Jewish holidays should be on here its not far!

I agree!

43 Australia Day

Advanced Australia fair enjoy for ‘strains and let us sing, Advanced Australia Fair!

I'm Australian. My family always have barbecues on Australia Day - Lunala

44 Passover

So sad seeing fake holidays like huh a short person day ahead of it matzo ball soup is so good

Passover is when God led Moses and the Israelites out of Egypt.

1 or 2 out of the 8 days are great (depending on how many Seders you have) it's basically thanksgiving just with a lot lot lot of Jewish Grandmas cooking, brisket, meatballs, horse radish, matza balls, parsley, egg, chicken, lots of desert. The rest the holiday sucks, you can't have bread.

What the heck is Passover? LOL

We will remember them.

Lest we Forget.
