Least Favorite - Christmas due to commercialism and the expectation that everyone is happy and cheerful.

Favorite - Thanksgiving - family and food (especially since my brother and wife now do the hosting )

My favorite is Thanksgiving - The EATING Holiday!
I'm not a fan of the big booze-fest events such as New Year's, St. Patrick's, Memorial Day (although I do respect its original purpose), or Labor Day, since Sacramento drivers are quite bad enough when sober. We stay in on those days, not being drinker/partier types ourselves.

Fourth of July can be nice (drunks aside), thanks to fireworks displays. The food at Thanksgiving is always good, and I have a strong appreciation for Easter and Christmas for religious reasons (don't throw things at me, mods! That is ALL I'm saying on the religion issue!). I do resent the commercialization and frenzy US "culture" has turned Christmas into, though.

But I too must prefer Thanksgiving - calm, quiet, eat till you drop into the closest recliner and watch football.
Thanksgiving, calm or quiet?

You must not be the one doing the cooking.

Or the cleanup.

We stay at home on New Year's Eve and Christmas Eve, mainly because of the drunken and boozed up drivers.

It's a jungle out there, I tell ya.

Cheers.

We only get the day after, so, it sucks even more for us. And did you know that new year is exactly two weeks after christmas, so it'll be on a saturday as well

In the calendar that I use, Christmas and New Year are 1 week apart.
