Halloween is definitely my favorite. It's my whole families favorite holiday, we always go all out for it.

My new school has a policy where you can't dress up for Halloween because it's considered a "religious holiday" and because they don't want it to be a distraction.

Free candy is my religion.

Anyway, as for favorite holidays, I think New Year's Eve is my favorite now that I'm old enough to celebrate it with friends instead of family. A couple years ago, I went out to dinner with my sister and her friend and his boyfriend, and then we ordered a pie with four forks and ate it all out of the tin, and then we went back to my apartment and got drunk and had our "new year's speeches" which were mostly drunken emotional ramblings about each other. Really though, I think it all depends on who I get to celebrate it with, but New Year's Eve usually lines up well with people's schedules, so I usually get to spend time with whoever I want then.

Also... I don't actually like Christmas anymore. Stepfamily traditions suck and my mom gets mad if I spend Christmas with anyone else, especially if it's my dad. So much stupid drama and I can't afford presents for people and in general I just don't feel like I actually belong in any part of my family. At least my sister's in the same position as me so we can suffer through it together. (And here I am, complaining about Christmas when I'm the one running the Sercret Santa...)

Hm...the last few years I celebrated nothing at all. X'D No birthdays, no Christmas, no New Year's eve... (most of the time I had to work...last time I was sick. ^^ So I could at least stay at home and didn't have to work.)

When my mom and grandpa were still alive, we celebrated Christmas, because they were the ones who really liked it to decorate the apartment and everything. But well, grandma and I are just not the types for stuff like that. ^^ When I was younger, I really enjoyed New Year's Eve...I celebrated together with friends, which was always nice. But most of them live too far away now and have a new circle of friends and I always had to work, so no one is asking me anymore if I'd like to join. (Lol, sounds...somehow depressing OTL XD)

@Ghosty: T__T That's so sad that your school won't let you dress up! .. but I'm glad your family is all in for it.

@Weisel: omg, I feel the same about Christmas. XD It just reminds me that I should learn to budget and I need to figure out how I can send people the love they deserve, (sob)

(SPEAKING OF WHICH, AHIKU, LET ME LOVE YOU.)

but I feel like Secret Santa is different y'know? XD since you only have one person to shower with love, hahaha. but omg your New Years Eve celebration sounds fun. XD I'm lucky if I stay up for the countdown.

@Reiko: o.o That ... sounds like Obon. XD Is it anything like Halloween at all? Do you dress up or carve pumpkins? Is there candy? XD

@Meopat I couldn't wear a costume, so instead I dressed up in a nice Halloween-themed outfit every day this week. We have Friday off though so it was only for four days. I did bats monday, skeletons Tuesday, spiders wednesday, and blood today.

I'm actually Jewish, so I don't celebrate christmas

@Ghosty Christmas is honestly so ridiculous anyway. I worked at a seasonal Christmas market selling super overpriced Christmas decorations and holy ****... rich people paid so much money for that stuff (it's mostly stuff from Germany, and rich Americans LOVE to talk about their trips to Germany and try to out-brag each other. I was just behind the register like "mkay that'll be $1000") and that's about it for Christmas. Just... buying crap. Some of the church services can be nice, but they're long and not THAT interesting. The most interesting Christmas tradition I witnessed was in New Mexico. The kids in my sister's elementary school were in a play that retold some Christmas story. There was a kid in a devil costume so it was way more interesting that the original story.

(Giving Ahiku thousand hugs)
I hope you will find something in this year's Christmas or other holiday that will make you celebrate it again, it's sad T_T... or free time to do it, if that's main problem.

(Hugs again)

I don't know I have mixed feelings about Christmas, but mostly don't like feelings. I never felt warmth inside my family in that day or maybe my standards after American family/christmas movies are to high.
When I remember how I alone sang christian songs few years ago, I start to feel sad... And I know that my fiance is totally atheist (no god at all) so I don't think he will ever sing something with me in future on that day...

Ok. Maybe better don't talk about Christmas... XD

*jumps into Meo's arms* >_< *snuggle*

@reiko thanks *hugs you back* Hm... o.o I'm also atheist and I sing a lot of Christmas songs (I sing Xmas songs since last month. X'D Well, maybe not the songs you like to sing, but sometimes I really like to sing old folk songs (not just Christmas song). I even record myself and practice harmonies like that. :D 
(I'm also interested in Japanese and English Folk songs. ^^) Ah, and I also sing just for myself... but I don't feel sad because of it. But I guess it's mainly because I just sing to train and strengthen my vocal chords and not because of religious reasons. :3 I hope you can find someone who will sing with you. Have you ever considered joining a choir? ^^

I just remembered, back in high school I always performed with our makeshift Christmas brass band. We'd freeze our asses off playing outside at the "Christmas in Millheim" festival... I live in Millheim as of today, so I'll be right in the middle of it. I wonder if they still do that band.

Also since I live where holidays are really overdone, I was thinking of making videos just walking around and seeing anything interesting like decorations. Like Las Vegas East, as my grandpa liked to call our old neighbor's house around Christmas. Everything was lights. EVERYTHING.

Nah, I'm not so much believer to join some kind of choir. I have my own way of thinking about god, because else I would scream around that Nezumi and Shion should root in hell because of their sinful love XD, this even sound stupid.

I just always imagined Christmas as family holiday when everyone laugh, sing and are happy to be together.
At last yesterday I little talked with fiance and he don't mind to sing along with me (even if he don't know many traditional songs he said). He's my light ^^.

I just remembered a funny Halloween story... So my friend's family one year left out a bowl of candy on the porch with a "take one" sign (as some people do, not everyone can take the time to hand it out but they'll still want to give out candy, not that it's mandatory by any means). As you might expect, some kids are little **** and take all the candy and leave the empty bowl. Anyway, they had the bowl of candy on a scarecrow's lap in a chair on the front porch. But... The scarecrow was my friend's dad in a really believable costume. He stayed perfectly still for the kids that took only one piece of candy, but jumped up and yelled whenever kids tried to take more. I think he made one kid pee his pants that year. (If I ever have a house myself where I can hand out candy, I'm absolutely doing this.)
