I use the term religious very loosely because I know many that are not Christian still celebrate Christmas as a cecular holiday... But obviously it is... I really just mean don't include Arbor Day, 4th of July or ThanksGiving in that list... Just keep it to those that at least were if not are meant to be religious in one way or another...
~Please excuse the spelling, my brain is really not working and this thing lacks spell check!

Samhain is my fav. by far. I love everything about it. That it comes in the fall, that we get to dress up, that we embrace the macabre, that we start to turn inwards emotionally & psycholgically at that time,that we welcome back lost loved ones, that the celebratory feast is focused on sweets & candy...

For me it's Lent. No not because I love to be miserable, but because it's a time when I can reflect on what I've done or not done through year. A time to better myself, purify my soul. Each year I come out on the other side a better, more understanding person. Then as the year wears on I slip back into some of my old ways. And Lent is back.

Yeah, I'd have to go with Christmas,and Easter. As I've said before, it really doesn't matter to Christians WHEN we celebrate them. We aren't celebrating WHEN Jesus was born, or WHEN He was resurrected. We are celebrating THAT He was! That He chose to leave His home in Heaven,come to Earth, live, walk amongst us, teach, love,heal,forgive,and ultimately pay the price none of us were capable of. To do for us what we could not do for ourselves, save our souls from eternal damnation,and complete seperation from Him. Christmas could be on August 2nd,and Easter could be on October 10th,and it would make no difference.
