Popular Holidays

Popular Holidays are just that, they are some of our favorites! Christmas is the most popular, and is celebrated in most countries around the world.

My favorites change periodically depending on family circumstances, but I can always count on a family get together to celebrate, and a great meal! 

Some holidays, like Halloween, are much more fun when you have kids or grandchildren around, to share their joy. Some holidays like New Years Eve, and  Valentines Day are much more fun, when you are not single!

Below are some of the most Popular Holidays, listed in Date order:
