EstebanI love Christmas because the beautiful lights relax me and make me happy. I love hot cocoa and cookies and sitting by the warm fire place. I love waking up at 7:00 to open the gifts. Christmas is not about gifts. It is about giving.
Anna J.The best Christmas time I've ever had was when my hamster got a new wheel and she decided to run on it.Another thing was I got a new password journal and I used it a lot.My favorite memory was when we had dinner as a family with all my relatives.The Christmas season last year was awesome and I hope it happens again.One more thing my other favorite part was celebrating Jesus birthday every year.That is why Christmas is my favorite time of year.
Sydney R.The best Christmas I remember is three years go when my Aunt, Uncle and cousins came to my house and we all had a big feast, later that night we watched Frosty the Snow man the movie and fell asleep. The next morning when we woke up we ran downstairs and there were a bunch of presents at the bottom of my Christmas tree. We played all day long, at about noon we went outside to ice skate, sled and make snow angels. It was so much fun! That was my favorite Christmas.

We would always ....always... jostle to our presents! We always had the strangest Christmases. But we always have the most fun time ever!
Sam D. I think the holiday's are special because you can spend time with your family and friends.Some might even be out of town and you don't get to see them a lot.Another special thing is you can play with your friends and family plus I bet you'll have a lot of fun. I hope you liked what I wrote and I hope you have a fun HOLIDAY!!!!!
Trevor NelsonThe best Christmas I have had was in 2009. I got to see my whole family together. We had the best lunch and dinner. It was fun because I got to play with my cousins and family. Some people were amazed with the presents they got and so was I. Every body was happy we showed up at there house. Every body had a great time. That was the best Christmas I every had.
Charlie RA unique Christmas tradition in my family is to make coffee bread. My family is the only ones who can get it right so we make multiple loafs of coffee bread and give some to other relatives. Another Christmas tradition is to play hide the pickle. To play this you have to have a pickle ornament. The lookers go into a different room and shut the door. Then when the hider is done hiding the pickle on the tree you let the lookers look for it. The first person find the pickle gets a prize. And those are two Christmas traditions in my family.

Hailey.BChristmas is special to me because I get to see my loving family and get a lot of presents and hugs from my grandma Terresa. At my grandma Peggys house I beg my mom to have a sleepover with my aunt Raychel and my mom usually lets me. At my grandma Peggys there's a buffet of food and I'm pretty sure there's thirty people in the house. When it's time to leave I don't want to because I had so much fun.
Carter R.The best Christmas I ever had. Is when I went to my grammy house and we did a lot of stuff. We played a lot of air hockey and hide and seek it took like thirty min. to find me.
Iris McDonald-What I celebrate in the winter season as a Pastafarian is a holiday called, well, holiday.Its exactly like Christmas but instead cold,hard,leftover meat for dinner we eat pasta!Last year was my most religious holiday so far. Me and my sister (The only person in my family that is a Pastafarian besides me.) ate pasta for breakfast, lunch, dinner and for an afternoon snack.On Holiday morning I ate (pasta) drank (eggnog) and was MERRY!!
Ben MarksberryThe best Christmas I remember is when I got a bike from Santa Claus. It was red with flames on it and really cool graphics. I also think it was the best because a lot of my family was there. That's why I think it was the best Christmas ever. P.S. I also got a lot of candy.
Ellie S.The holidays seem to be the best time of the year. Everyone is singing and laughing. It's just so great! But there are reasons. A lot of people are on break which means less to worry about. It also means you can maybe go on a vacation! There is tons of stuff to do, too. Lots of fun stuff to do. Most get gifts from family, friends, and maybe even Santa. These gifts may make life more fun which can lead to a more fun or joyful person. Christmas can be so much fun.
Trevor.S The holidays are really special to me because you get to see all your friends and family all in one place. Sometimes there are real fun family games to. Plus its nice to give rather than to receive. Most people say that's a saying just for Christmas but really I believe it's good for all holidays. A Christmas gift I've given was a baby alive doll to a little girl probably far away from here it was a Christmas donation.A Christmas memory I had was when me and my family where having our Christmas dinner. My family does not really have any holiday tradition besides believing in god and all the holidays. All of my Christmases were great. I hope you have a great Christmas.
Miko.BuenkHello my name is miko. I come from the Netherlands. There we celebrate St.Nicholas day. On St.Nicholas day St.Nicholas rides into the canals on a big red steam ship. At night you leave your shoe or boot at the fireplace or door. And wen your asleep he puts candy and toys in your shoe or boot. And that is pretty much all there is about St.Nicholas day. bye!
