Top 10 Best Holidays

The Top Ten
1 Christmas

Christmas is honestly one of the best holidays ever. You get presents, you get to spend time with your family, and it's just a great holiday for that reason. I'm gonna put this one at 2nd.

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 than 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.

2 Halloween

Halloween is the best holiday for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it's a chance to dress up in fun and creative costumes, allowing people to express themselves in unique ways. Secondly, it's a holiday enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children trick-or-treating to adults attending costume parties. Additionally, Halloween allows for the consumption of delicious treats like candy and pumpkin-flavored treats.

Another reason why Halloween is the best holiday is the spooky and mysterious atmosphere it creates, which can be both thrilling and exciting. Finally, Halloween is a holiday that encourages community engagement through events like haunted houses and neighborhood trick-or-treating. All of these reasons make Halloween a fun and exciting holiday that many people look forward to every year.

Halloween is my favorite holiday because it is about the supernatural, magic, and mockery of death. I love vampires, werewolves, ghosts, mummies, goblins, and monsters. To me, Halloween is very Catholic because it is a celebration of God's victory over evil and reminds me that we do not need to fear death, which Jesus Christ conquered. I like the history and traditions behind it, such as putting on costumes and jack-o'-lanterns. It is a day filled with fun, fantasy, and honoring the dead. I also love watching horror movies and Halloween cartoon episodes on TV.

3 Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. You get to eat and spend time with your family. It's just a normal holiday. For this, I'm going to put it at 4th. Not too good, but it's still good.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are honestly equally awesome. For Thanksgiving, everyone goes to the one hundred and fifty acre ranch one of our family members owns, featuring a lake, woods, a meadow, and an old barn. The women cook together, and the smell is delicious. We eat both lunch and dinner there, spending our time playing outdoors with many other kids.

There's a horse barn where we played. The stalls were our prison, and we had to escape from them. We would try to climb up the walls or use barrels to hop out the windows. There were also lots of chickens to chase and catch! There's just such a feeling of family. My grandmother had nine children, and her sister twelve, not to mention the many other families. I am truly lucky to be a part of such a loving, large family.

And don't forget the history of this holiday! The Pilgrims, Indians, and thankfulness. Without God's provision then, I wouldn't be alive. (They are my ancestors) God bless, remember to be grateful, happy early Thanksgiving, 2020.

4 Easter

I like Easter, and it's not because of the Easter Bunny or chocolates. It's because I absolutely LOVE the joyful vibe in the Church that morning (I'm also Anglican and take Easter more seriously than before I transferred to Anglicanism). I can feel the Holy Spirit within the Church during that time, and it's the strongest around the Altar when we're doing Communion. I was smiling during the entire Sermon this morning.

I am also very active in my Church choir and we sing beautiful hymns, Offertories, and then the Hallelujah Chorus right after the service is over. I think that Easter is a very important holiday to celebrate.

Honestly, I don't care about Jesus. The dominance of religion in holidays still to this day kind of disgusts me. However, Easter and Christmas are still my favorite holidays for non-religious reasons. I always feel overweight after Thanksgiving, but Easter really appeals to the child within me. I always loved scavenger hunts and such. My biggest problem was eggs weren't hard enough to find. Also, it does bring the family together, albeit Christmas achieves this better. The egg-hunting side of Easter boosts your self-esteem and pulls up that inner child desiring to hunt the eggs, find the eggs, and win. And human nature is about winning.

5 Independence Day

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.

I call it the Fourth of July. This one is at the top of my list. My family and I go to my cousin's house with a lot of other people. We play whiffle ball and just hang out.

This is a favorite for me too, but it's too bad the cops have to go and ruin it every year by taking away all our fireworks and leaving us with only sparklers and smoke bombs...

6 New Year's Day

A new year. A new start? Not a new start, but a new year where you can have a new trip or try new foods. Maybe spend a little money on that thing you want.

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.

I like New Year's Day because that is my dad and my step-mom's anniversary, and she is an awesome mom because she does a bunch of things she doesn't have to!

7 New Year's Eve

This was a great holiday as I was growing up because it was my mom's birthday. Socializing with friends and family, drinking, eating, listening to music. But since she has passed, it isn't quite as fun.

Just like Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve is better than celebrating the actual holiday because when it comes, it feels anti-climactic. What you envision in your head as an amazing start to the new year is just the day after yesterday. Life is still boring and miserable, not to mention that January and February are both terrible months. The Eve before 20XX, you get to snack on finger foods, open last-minute Christmas presents, and anticipate what the next year will have in store for you.

Ah, yes. The special mood in the air of ringing in a whole New Year. It's especially fun for kids, who stay up hours longer than usual and spend the night playing games and stuff.

8 Valentine's Day

I like Valentine's Day. It's 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, it's basically a day about love. Just with a bit more pink, which honestly makes me smile. 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...

Why does everyone hate Valentine's Day?! It's awesome! If only everyone would stop thinking about their personal love life and start preparing cards for their friends. I've never been in love before, and Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday! I especially love it because it's my birthday.

9 Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is actually probably better than Christmas itself because you are so excited for Christmas that you actually enjoy the days leading up to it more. And there is more family time on this day because on Christmas everyone is just playing with their new toys.

Christmas Eve is an 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 and excited feeling is gone. So Christmas Eve is the best holiday EVER!

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.

10 St. Patrick's Day

Sadly, it's not Leprechaun's Day, it's Saint Patrick's Day. It's a feast day for a Catholic saint, best known for converting the 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.

I have the luck of the Irish because I am actually Irish-Canadian myself!

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

The Contenders
11 Mother's Day

Who here has heard the story behind this time of year? I know I'm going to do something for my mom that is very special. It'll be a Mother's Day she'll never forget. - said by almost everyone over the past hundred years.

Mother's Day at the Beckerman house is every day! When Mother's Day comes around, I always get a chance to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom, and sometimes my mom and I do mother/daughter outfits!

I love my mom so much! This Mother's Day, I am going to give her a card and a bouquet of flowers, and we are going to have a picnic at our local park.

12 Earth Day

Earth Day is a wonderful holiday to celebrate our Earth. We should never litter at all because it hurts Mother Earth. We need to save our animal friends. People should think before they trash and litter. People should use trash cans and even recycle. That's what Earth Day means to me.

I think people should think more about our planet. Litter is everywhere in our oceans and forests. If we don't do anything about it now, it will be too late. All the animals will die, and we will have no trees to breathe, so do something today. Every day is Earth Day.

This holiday should be more popular. We need to pay attention, 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!

13 Memorial Day

The death of anybody is not something I'd call a favorite, but to those who fought for this country and died during or after their service, you have my honor, respect, and recognition. We love and miss you.

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

A wonderful day to honor those who have served this nation, with the bonus of a day off from work or school.

14 Father's Day

It's sad how mothers always get credit, even if they do something bad, but the second a father screws up a little, he is deemed abusive. Father's Day is often forgotten, which is sad because a child needs both a father and a mother (notice how I said 'both' instead of just 'one'). Fathers often don't get too much credit, but they put in a ton of work into raising a child too.

Father's Day is my all-time favorite holiday, along with my father's birthday, of course. My father and I are best friends, as well as father and daughter! I love celebrating Father's Day with my father.

I celebrate my husband because my father has passed. The kids get him a gift, and I take him to dinner. Nothing that exciting.

15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

This holiday is great because it celebrates the life of a great man who changed the way America is today (plus no school or work).

Celebrating a true king, one of the most amazing holidays honoring a man who championed equality.

Martin Luther King is great, not just because we don't go to school.

16 April Fools' Day

Oh my God, April Fools' Day is a great day. You get to play pranks on everybody. It's just a great day. It's also really funny. I just love this holiday. For this reason, I am putting it at 1st.

Why is this at #24? Why can't it be #1? This is the one day when you can prank people as much as you want, and get pranked!

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down…

I am the queen of April Fools' Day, and I love playing tricks on my cousins and my mom too! I really love April Fools' Day, and it is my all-time favorite holiday!

17 Good Friday

When I was little, my family bought fish and chips for Good Friday, like always. Back when Fish and Chips weren't fake food that gave me food poisoning, ugh! I miss the OLD fish and chips in my local area.

The day God died for us.

Because you can go to get ice cream at Sweet Frog, then go home to eat your ice cream.

18 Star Wars Day

How is this #27, and why is Solo: A Star Wars Story being released on the 25th?!

May the 4th be with you...

I just love it.

19 Labor Day

You get a free day off from work or school! You don't even have to observe anything. You just get a free day off. You can just relax all day. You don't get broke buying so many presents. You don't have to be busy cooking. You don't have to be busy giving out candy. Just relax and watch some football!

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

20 Superheroes Day

Holy crap, I've never heard of this holiday... I should probably think about celebrating it!

21 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.

I have two boxer dogs, so we nickname it Boxer Day and celebrate how lovely our dogs are.

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

22 Autumn Equinox

The leaves start falling!

23 Hanukkah

I'm Jewish and I've only celebrated Hanukkah a few times. I wish I was closer to my religion, but I'm not. I love this holiday, though, and I believe it deserves more recognition.

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 ranges from decent to trash. But the family time is awesome, so I love Chanukah. (Yeah, I spelled it the Jewy way)

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

24 Mario Day (Mar 10)
25 Milk Chocolate Day
