What is your favorite holiday?

Asked by RayaHope (5117points) 1 month ago

I always loved the 4th of July. Something about the fireworks mesmerizes me, they are so pretty. Also, like Earth Day and Arbor Day. Here is a long list of holidays.

I’d probably go with Easter. Weather is usually nice, and the Easter Bunny is easier on my wallet than Santa is.

Christmas was ALWAYS my favorite…until most of my family passed on!!! Now, since I’ve retired, I don’t care much for any Holiday. IF I had to pick one, it might be New Years because it gives me HOPE that things will be different as in new & fresh for the coming year!!! PLUS…I still get those beautiful fireworks. :]

Easter. Just because the grocery stores have stocked up on the good rib roasts. Also Cadbury chocolate cream eggs.

New Year, because it’s the only long holiday that I get to take anymore. Most other holidays are just too short.

Probably Thanksgiving. But I was big on any excuse to shamefully stuff myself and duck out of work or school.

Halloween and other fall celebrations. I start the season in September with scary movies and apple cider donuts.

@RayaHope now that I think about your details, what exactly “mesmerizes” you about the Fourth of July? I actually like the Fourth of July, but for a reason you can never guess :D

Hard to pick one.

When my grandma was alive my favorite holiday was Passover hands down, no competition.

I always loved July 4th too. I loved the fireworks.

I used to not like Halloween very much, but in recent years I’m liking it more and more.

I like Chanukah where I live, because I perform and several hundred people show up to celebrate. It’s nice.

Where I live there are parades and celebrations for so many holidays and they all start to blend together. They help move the year along.

I’m a Halloween guy. My goal is to scare at least one teenager each year.

@Mimishu1995 I kinda go into a trance with all the colors and sometimes when they have shapes. The sparking sparks that fall and twinkle, the smell of the smoke, just the whole atmosphere is intoxicating to me. It’s kinda magical.

So many favorite Holidays!!!!
I love all holidays as it is a reason to relax, celebrate and get together with friends and family.

Easter from a religious standpoint and the sign of springs new life

Thanksgiving. No need to go into debt, just reflect on all you have for which to be thankful and spend time with family, and, of course, eat a little too much.

Xmas…obviously

Christmas because no one wants to work during that time, so I don’t have to do any work to keep up. I thus have time to go on vacation and see people I don’t normally have time to see.
