Since today is halloween I thought I would ask the question “What is your favorite holiday?” My favorite holiday is Christmas throughout the entire year. There is nothing like getting up early in the morning and seeing the my kids faces opening up all those gifts Santa brings them.

When I was a child only two years I had a good Christmas! The other ones were pretty lame, never seemed to get what I wanted. Plus my family did not have a whole lot of money to get myself and my brother the gifts that the other kids received.

You know it is said it better to give then to receive. As a father that is so true, but when I was a child that little phrase was thrown out the window.

at 20, christmas has become more about what i get other people for gifts, which is cool, but it also drains my already drained pockets. and also, starting to go out to bars and clubs now, i think my favorite holiday has now become holloween:hump:

I second that.

Other cool ones would be Thanksgiving, Christmass, and Easter because you have really big, awesome meals on those ones, lol, and on Thanksgiving you get a really big, awesome meal AND football. New Years Eve is pretty cool too, because I like to party and that is basically the day that the entire world parties.

The most overrated would probably be Valentine's Day. I think it's pointless. It doesn't feel like anything special. I think it was designed by a chick as an excuse for us to shower them with gifts (and for them to eat chocolate without us telling them they are gonna get fat)

Thanksgiving by far, there is no fear of let down or if you bought someone the right gift, your not expected to spend a ton of money, and it's still for all the right reasons, not blown up by retailers like Christmas is.

Christmas has to be the best holiday, least IMO. Presents, good food, family. Hopefully it's a snowy X-Mas.

The X-mas music, all the X-mas TV shows that are on. Holiday break.

Ahhhh, it's coming soon!

Any day that doesn't involve a bunch of annoying family members over is a holiday. I guess Thanksgiving, as long as it's just me, food, and football and that's it. :peace:

Probably Thanksgiving.

It signals the beginning of the Christmas season. Christman Day kind of is the END of the joyous season.

Yeah Christmas is about a season to me. Same with Halloween. The day after they happen are kinda bummers since it's over.

Veterans Day is coming up, that is a day that means alot and is very special as well.

You haven't experienced holidays until you've experienced them in Israel. The festivity is palpable without the commercialization.

My favorite, Simkhat Torah, was celebrated a few weeks ago. In the synagogues, every member parades with the sifrei Torah (Torah scrolls) through the congregation, while everyone boisterously sings. In some areas, such as mine they dance with the sifrei Torah in the streets with a lot of music.

Purim is also a lot fun. People dress in costume and some communities have really cool parades a couple of days later. I lived in one of them, Ra'anana, for awhile. Marchers carried giant stuffed bird heads and the like. One of the most delicious pastries in Jewish cooking, oznei haman (Haman's ears, Ashkenazim call them Hamantashen) is prepared beginning about a month before.

Passover is also very enjoyable, it's the most ritualistic holiday and you have to drink at least four cups of wine and we retell the Exodus from Egypt. A lot of people drink grape juice.
