  • All the Pagan holidays that Sabrina listed plus

    I also celebrate Halloween, Christmas, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Mothers/Fathers Day (do these REALLY count as holidays?), Valentines (once in a while) ...

  • Personally, I celebrate Samhain (Oct. 31), Yule (Dec. 21), Imbolc (Feb 2), Ostara (March 21), Beltane (May 1), Litha (Jun 21), Lammas (Aug. 1), Mabon (Sept 21)

    I also celebrate Halloween, Christmas & July 4th with my family.

    Beyond that the holidays are either not a part of or disagree with my religious or personal beliefs.

  • Every christian or American holiday when hubby is not out to sea, we do not celebrate anything when he is gone. I grew up not celebrating anything as a Jehovah's Witness.

  • All of the norms... Easter, Christmas, 4th of July, Valentines, Halloween, Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc.

    We will make special foods (like grilling out on Labor Day or festive treats for Christmas), bake cookies, watch movies (like Easter Bunny for Easter, Rudolph for Christmas) and all that fun stuff. We're a cheesy family.

  • Well I am a Catholic so I celebrate Easter and Christmas as religious holidays, we still do all of the fun stuff associated with them but in my mind they are religious holidays first. And then of course I celebrate 4th of July, Halloween and Thanksgiving because who doesn't like fireworks, candy or turkey? :)

  • all holidays

    Answer by 1LovelyAngel at 6:00 PM on Oct. 20, 2010

  • All the "regular" or "tyical" ones, Christmas with Santa, Easter with the bunny, Halloween with candy, 4th of July with fireworks, Valentines Day with a romantic partner, St Patricks Day with a green theme, Memorial day remember those who serve (d), Mother Day, Fathers Day, Thanksgiving with the turkey & trimmings. I don't celebrate anything that is more religious based like Hanakuh (sp?), etc. (as for Christmas, the way I have always celebrated it was not religion based.)
