With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it would be a good time to rank the best holidays of the year. Alot of factors go into choosing the best holiday: time off of school, presents received, and the holiday itself. So here they are, my top ten holidays.
Christmas/Hanukkah: The best holidays by far. With two weeks off of school, presents, and lots of food, there is nothing bad about these two holidays.
Thanksgiving: It’s all about the food. But the week off of school is also very nice.
Fourth of July: This classic American holiday is in the middle of the summer, with no stress of school to detract from the celebrations.
New Year’s: Big parties and late nights characterize the last holiday of the year.
President’s Day: Four day weekend, very nice.
Labor Day: A quick three day weekend early in the school year is always welcome.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Another great three day weekend.
Valentine’s Day: Fun. I guess.
Veteran’s Day: What more can I say about three day weekends?
Halloween: Always seems to be less than mediocre. Candy is nice though.
