H Is For Holidays

Which holiday is your favorite?
We have many holidays in Canada, that not everyone shares. And there are some holidays in other countries that I heard of, but have not had the chance to see.
Easter is this month. Which is a holiday for Christ, but also a time when Lilies are around.

I love Christmas for the same reason. Christ, that is. Plus you get so much wonderful family time that is hard to pass up! Decorating with them is a tradition that I love.

I love Thanksgiving, where I usually have turkey dinner twice.

The benefits of having two families!
They are always what I am thankful for.
Plus I have a love and fascination for Halloween.

To see the kids all dressed up, having the time of their lives. All the pumpkins carved with wonderful faces. Just a wonderful night for all.
But most of all, and call me egotistical, that's okay, I love my birthday!

I personally think it should be an international holiday, but haven't got the world on my side quite yet.
I am a December baby. Yes I'm Suchacrabbyass, (Sagittarian). In case you are wondering.
So there ya have my faves. Though I left a few out, if I named them all I'd look mildly crazy. Better if I keep my feet planted on the ground, and my head out of the clouds!

  10. Gotta agree about Easter and Christmas for the reasons you say, but one of my favorite holidays of all time is Thanksgiving--good food and fun family time with lots of relaxation. When I was a kid I loved Halloween too. My candy would usually run out during Thanksgiving weekend.
