What Holiday Is the Best?

Post by Ravenfreak » 1 month ago

So out of the many Holidays that you celebrate, which do you think reign supreme over the other ones and why? Is it family tradition, or just the activity done on said Holiday? Christmas is by far supreme IMO, you get to spend time with your family, get awesome gifts and give awesome gifts too. It's nice seeing other people happy, just knowing you got them a nice gift. Plus, the weather is nice and cold out too. (Unless you live in a area that is tropical or in another country that has Summer during December...)

I like Thanksgiving and Christmas about equal since they're in cold weather. Holidays like 4th of July are so hot I just want to stay inside.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it's a great excuse to consume copious amounts of food, particularly plate after plate of salty meat and buttery mountains of mashed potatoes, without judgment it is a great time to spend time with family without the pressure and stress of gift-giving that Christmas places on everyone.

Just despise 90% of your family and get them nothing. It works for me.

I like Halloween, everyone dresses up and suddenly eating horrendous amounts of candy is allowed. I love how the leaves change colours and i can wear a hoodie without sweating to death. I like layering cloths in general so I'm a fan of the colder months.

I like Rosh Hashanah because I like the idea that the new year starts in Spring and not in the middle of winter. :'D Also apples with honey is tasty. Yes I only like Jewish holidays for the food

In all seriousness though, I like most holidays, but I also don't celebrate many at all. My father and I are non-practicing, so we only really celebrate local stuff and even then we kinda ignore it a lot.

My Jewish professor took us to a Passover celebration instead of having regular class just to do nothing but eat. We got free grade for it too.

Was it a proper Seder or just for fun? 'cause a proper feast has a lot of Hebrew and wine for some reason.

Everything but the wine but it was just for the sake of teaching us gentile heathens about it.
