In one year has many holiday such as New Year's Day, Songkran Day and Christmas Day.In my mind New Year's Day is the most special holiday for me because this is a long holiday but other holiday are only one or two days.Furthermore we can enjoy this global festival in anywhere and it's a good chance for sending card or gift for friend.The important reason is we can go to travel in suburb or other country in this holiday because our office are closed.So my family always go to travel in beautiful place such as the sea or natural parks.

My favorite holiday is Christmas Day. It is a long holiday, which we can travel around the world happily. It's the time for everyone to be happy and enjoy their lives. On this special holiday, we get to open our gifts from our parents or relatives and everyone is happy. Christmas Day is one of my favorite holidays, i think it's a great holidays!

Hi! Everyone, my name is Eiab and my favourite festival in my country is Songkran. Songkran is a very very fun festival that can make me relax with the water thrown by somebody else. I will be even more happy if I can play with my own family. Mostly, I spend time with my family, playing in these 3 days. It was very fun that I willmet all of my cousins today. We use water gun to squirt on other people. In the evening we will pour the water on adult hands (people we know) that we pay respect and wish for them.

Anyway, Songkran, in the old time did not allow people to use water gun or there are no water gun in that time. They will pour the water softly on other people or paint powder with mixing water on somebody else. In conclusion, I think songkran now is a bit more fun. Very Happy

My favourite holiday is Valentine's Day. I believe that love is the most important thing in the world. Yes, some of you may say that happiness, friends, and family would be more important... But think about this: How could you be happy without love? To be happy about something is to love it. Also, if your friends and family make you happy, is that not based on love?
Sorry if I have bored you, but this is something that I am passionate about, and I believe that a day spent to celebrate love is a day well spent.
Have a great night! Very Happy

I like Christmas. It's romantic. But,if I don't have lover,I will very very sad. But when I don't have lover,I make a hullabaloo with my frinds.Go to karaoke(singing a song)and take a purikura(photo seal).It's very fun.
But I appeared to be sad. If I have lover, I want to go Disney land.
Disney land is very fun and very beautiful at night. I want to buy many pooh goods. Just it, I'm very satisfanction.

In my opinion, I think Christmas and New Year's Day is my favorite because I can go to anywhere else for a long time. In that holiday, the seasons is in winter. I feel so good in this seasons. It's like a lazy seasons, haha. I usually go to Chiang Mai in this holiday and stay in my parents home. In the morning you can see fog around the city. I think Christmas and New Year's Day is the best holiday for me.

Hi,

I'm from Korea and I love our traditional holiday called Seolnal.

It's similar to New Year's Day, but the Seolnal follows the lunar calender.

We eat our traditional food, and we bow to elders and they give us money.

Another holiday I love is Chuseok, and it is our traditional holiday, too.

Best point of those holidays are that those are quite long - we have the

longest holiday except our vacations.

On Christmas or New Year's Day, we can just rest one day, so I don't

enjoy them much.

when i was in school, i like winter holiday and summer holiday. they are very long and i have enough time to go home or go to travel. although spring festival and workers'day and national day are all very importent and be cared by people, i do not like them very much. during that period, too many persons go out to travel or go home to meet their folk. it is too crowd on the road. so when these holidays are coming, most time I will stay in one city and rest in home.

Hello. My name is Tiffany. My favorite holiday is Valentine's Day. Because the love is very important in a person's life. I believed the love can let our life more colorful. Lover just as the sun always bright up our live. Maybe someone doesn' t like Valentine's Day because they are no lover. But undeniable everybody is full of imagining to this holiday, as if the candle light dinner and the present in Valentine's Day.
Anyway .I think on Valentine's Day can be with one's own favorite person .It is a very cheerful thing.
