    This time it wil be about holidays. Which are your favorite holidays? I know there will be a lot of options on this poll, because there are a lot of holidays.
    Since I cannot list every nation's holidays, please note:

    "New Year" includes the Jewish (Rosh Hashanah) or Chinese new year holidays.

    "Your nation's independence/founding holiday" includes Independence Day in the U.S., Canada Day/Dominion Day for Canadians, Bastill Day in France, etc.

    "Christmas" includes Epiphany, and all other Christmas variants.

    It was a tough choice between Equinox/Solstice and Halloween. I chose the former because I enjoy the feeling of being part of the natural circle of life - the change and progression of the seasons. It is such a great celebration of life to welcome each new turn of the wheel while saying farewell to the seasons that have passed. So inspiring for us Godless Heathens.

    And Winter Solstice is coming!!!! woo hoo Time for the celebration of the "(Re)Birth of the SUN" (Sound familiar SUN/SON?????)

    This time of year is so gloomy. It's cold, the weather is bad and no one in their right mind visits us this time of year. I hate the crowds and the commercialism. I want to hibernate. We have very low key winter holidays celebrated simply.

    Come 4th of July, the weather is warm, the rain is gone and this is the most beautiful place in the world! We have friends and family from all over the country show up for that holiday. I usually have an average of 27 people camping in my yard to enjoy our energetic companionship, outdoor cooking and the great activities in our area that can only be enjoyed in the summer. Our communities go all out for this celebration, there is something for everyone.

    Halloween followed by the solstices. Also any relatively obscure holiday. Love to go around wishing people "Happy Bastille Day!" and singing a verse of La Marseillaise. Best of all is when people ask me what my birthday is: "Guy Fawkes Day!" Doesn't work for me nearly as well these days as I'm surrounded by Brits :(

    Carnival is great fun in Germany. Oh, heck just put me down for "all of the above."

    Too many favs. Like Thanksgiving because we stay home and relax. Christmas because we see family and the kids get so excited. Solstice because of the peaceful feeling of connecting with the life cycle and Mother Earth. Completely LOVE New Years Eve and Day!! The time to hang out and rest at home. No inlaws, no gifts! Just eat what we want, snuggle in with a good book and catch up on sleep. Perfect!!

    Normally I would say it's a tie between Halloween and Thanksgiving. But this year it is Christmas because my husband will actually be home to celebrate that one with us. :)
