Question of the Week #43: Culture

Question of the Week #43: Culture

What is your favorite holiday, and why?

My two cents (but please share yours):

My favorite is Christmas. I still get caught up in the giving, the magic, and I still listen for Santa’s reindeer on the roof at midnight.


  1. Christmas for me as well. I love giving gifts and seeing people open them.

    • I agree, Patti. It’s the look on their faces that’s so wonderful. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Thanksgiving. I love that the focus is on spending time with family without all the focus on gifts (plus the food is awesome!).

    • So true, Casey! There’s nothing better than sage stuffing. Cheers, Ashley

  3. Veterans Day. I am continually amazed at the sacrifices made by those who put themselves in harm’s way so we can continue to complain about the price of gas. Sorry, melancholy tonight

    • But your reminder of what is truly important, Mona, is so appreciated. Each member of our armed forces is a true hero. Cheers, Ashley

  4. Christmas is my favorite too

    • Hi Louise, I’ll bet you often get snow for Christmas, too. Cheers, Ashley

      • most years are white but the last few it’s been hit or miss – our weather is definitely changing

      • The weather definitely cycles, Louise. I can never keep straight whether it’s an El Nino or La Nina period. Oooh, maybe I should post Fun Factoids on those two, learning them at the same time. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  5. Christmas. Halloween is a close second. I love to bring out decorations seen only once a year, and my grandchildren love to ‘help’ decorate.

    • How wonderful that you have these family traditions, Gerri. Cheers, Ashley
