    The best one I had was on my 50th birthday, five years ago. Lots of family came to stay for my birthday and stayed on, some of them into January 2nd. It was a lot of hard work but oh Lord I had a brilliant time!!!!

  57. So hard to choose..there’s the normal holidays that are easy to choose such as Halloween or Christmas, but being a military brat, I love Veterans Day…I’m part of the VFW and teaching my 6 year old stepson patriotism…Veterans Day we took his dad out for supper, cooked him breakfast, wrote thank you cards and we will be painting rocks with red, whit and blue to leave wherever we go to spread patriotism…

  58. I think Christmas is the very best of Holidays since all my family make it a priority to be back home together for the special day. Being with family is always the best time for me. It all bring s so many memories and of course makes so many new ones too.

All ages can participate, and being in the audience or sitting on a curb, or marching, or playing an instrument, or singing patriotic songs, and passionately waving our beautiful flag are all welcomed activities – in addition to the fantastic picnic food and games which abound at every location thinkable! Demonstrating Freedom!!! – BEAUTIFUL!!!

  68. I like all holidays, but I guess that Christmas would have to be the best. I love the fact that people are (usually) kind to each other and willing to give to each other. Love for the birth of Jesus and the joy of the season is so much more alive at that time of the year.

  69. My favorite holiday is fourth of July. We have a cookout and watch the fireworks show with my family from Fort Hood.

That in between time when it’s all pretty and everyone (or a good majority of people anyway) are all happy and humming or singing carols and just enjoying things. I like that time so I suppose my favorite holiday is… I would go with Christmas if I had to pick just one though I’m tempted to say Thanksgiving because of what follows. Oh, I’m so torn! Happy days!

You see, Jewish holidays are “something happened to us, we won, LET’S EAT” Guess who does all the cooking for the 30 plus kids, grandkids, cousins and whoever else shows up at our doorstep? Yeap ME!
