Some say Christmas/Hannuka (SP?) time is the most wonderful time of the year. For some, it's not their favorite holiday, so what's yours?

November 22nd, 2007, 8:35 PM
I'm quite a fan of Christmas
New years sorta gives me mixed emotions. it's usually pretty cool, but as the night draws on, it sometimes gets sorta depressing for me

Do you post these polls the moment they pop in your head?

Christmas is the sole reason I do good in school, as it does pay off. Also, its the first REAL vacation after the first day of school.

New years sorta gives me mixed emotions. it's usually pretty cool, but as the night draws on, it sometimes gets sorta depressing for me

For some reason, I can't ever go to sleep on New Years. I just don't get tired...

Well since Christmas EVE is my favourite day of the year I'm going to have to say Christmas. New Years Eve is pretty smashing too, ussually.

I chose other - I'm not a fan of public holidays - too many people out and about. I like it when its quiet out, and Sunday mornings is perfect because its when a lot of people are hung-over and in their beds.

Christmas/New Year holiday is my favourite, as in Australia it's the longest holiday and it's the end of another school year. ^_^

Christmas is my favorite time of year.

You get out of school for a few weeks. Plus you get stuff for FREE! I mean, Who doesn't like that? You gather with Family and Friends and you brag about what you got spend time together.

a tie between Halloween and X-mas

Halloween: the ghost and dead things come alive, free candy. Scary people. Mostly Ghost

Christmas: Free stuff that you always wanted for like ever and trash talking family members ^_^

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays since not only am I celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, I get some time off from school and work, I get to hang out with some friends and family and just have a great time. ^^

I also love Halloween. It's the chance I have to show off my cosplay costumes! :D

November 24th, 2007, 7:33 AM
Halloween cos you get free candy (emfasis on the free).

November 24th, 2007, 7:41 AM

Its brings people together.

And I dont see the point in most of the other holidays.

Halloween. I can dress like a freak, get free candy, and raise all sorts of heck. Plus it's only three days after my birthday.

November 24th, 2007, 8:29 AM
Christmas is pretty,but my all-time favorite holiday would be Valentine's Day xD

November 24th, 2007, 8:59 AM
None I love them all, I could use a nice vacation now...

Christmas is the best if I want it to be.

I love the lights.

And the concerts.

And the air.

I also like Halloween. It makes me tingle.

November 24th, 2007, 11:39 AM
Christmas simply because of the presents and because you can eat as much a you want. I don't really care much about the other holidays. (And half of the stuff on the poll aren't even celebrated in Finland. =P)

November 24th, 2007, 11:50 AM
I love Newyears... its like your going back to the beginning and starting over. its the sign that every other holiday is coming again!

November 24th, 2007, 12:34 PM
For its purpose: Memorial Day.
Christmas; Thanksgiving; All-Hallow-Even and such holidays have lost a large bit of tradition over time, though Memorial Day remains consistent.

You just can't deny Christmastime. No other holiday seems to have the festive and loving spirit of the 25th of December.

However, the emphasis on rampant consumer leaves much to be desired...

November 24th, 2007, 1:15 PM
yum I lurves me somes apricots

Well, I'm sure people around here likes New Years more than Christmas, judging by the number of fireworks on the sky, and, since I love watching fireworks, I'm gonna say New Years. Christmas? meh... it's just an excuse for getting presents or money :laugh:

November 25th, 2007, 4:09 AM
nothing can test christmas its awesome you get exspensive presents and 3 weeks off school!!!!!!!!!

p.s. wot is the deal with apricots its all about coconuts


all you ppl with things for apricots might wanna vote for it in the fav fruit thread

November 25th, 2007, 6:26 AM
I have to say Independence Day in the United States because it marked the founding of the first modern republic.

November 25th, 2007, 9:53 AM
Hanami, I was born during it too. Next comes (Japanese) New Year, and Samhain.
*clicks "other" button with much emphasis*

This running joke about apricots baffles me...

Its a tie between Halloween and Christmas for me

November 25th, 2007, 10:02 AM
On the list, its christmas. You know that your birthday is your own, personal holiday, so thats really my favorite.

November 25th, 2007, 2:34 PM
I like Christmas eve and Christmas most. *Having fun with my family and friends*

November 25th, 2007, 7:14 PM
me too and It's the most wonderful time of the year of Christmas.

November 25th, 2007, 9:03 PM
I lurve the first day of fall. It's a sign that my favorite constellations will be in the sky at an earlier hour than four in the morning. Plus, the cold weather is comfortable to me, the seasons don't smell funny anymore, and school starts up again. (Yes, I like school.)

I really don't like any specific nation-wide holiday. The ones that no one else celebrates are much better because it's your own special day.

November 28th, 2007, 5:36 AM
New Years :3 I love doing the count down <3 Though its hard for me to stay up so late XD I also like Halloween.. Not real sure why though, since I don't even trick-or-treat anymore ^_^;

November 28th, 2007, 7:46 AM
I voted for Christmas. I enjoy getting the presents, I'm not going to lye, but I prefer Christmas Eve. We always get together with family on Christmas Eve, and thats nicer than receiving gifts.

November 28th, 2007, 4:58 PM
That would be Christmas or the fourth of July!

November 28th, 2007, 7:43 PM
Christmas by far and away.

I don't know why, but something about Christmas in particular is like the EPITOME of joy and happiness to me.

To me, there's something so un-cynical about Christmas in comparison to the other Holidays (at least, I should hope so o_o)--sure, we've had it marketed as "Santa Clause's" holiday, but in all actuality, in my eyes it's all about the weather and the family and the food and the fun time together. And the religious meaning behind it, absolutely!

So call me a sap. I love Christmas like no other holiday! :>

Not to mention it's at the tail-end of the year, so it's so cozy and in it's little corner and happy to be the best of all celebrations. <3

Christmas has an atmosphere that I really love, although it's mostly about stressed-out parents nowadays.

December 1st, 2007, 7:33 AM
I love Halloween and Christmas.
Halloween- Free candy, dresssing up as whatever you want and staying out late with friends
Christmas- more candy, and presents

December 1st, 2007, 8:14 AM
I think the best holiday is Christmas. >3.

December 1st, 2007, 9:29 AM
I vote Christmas.

I just love the atmosphere of it all, where everyone can forget about their worries for a while. To me, spending a day with your family, in blissful harmony, without any arguments, is better than any present I could recieve.
