For better or worse, the holiday spirit drives people to what could be considered excessive generosity. People love to give gifts and host parties during the holidays as a means of bringing family and friends together to perhaps make up for lost time during the year. The stores are all dressed up in its holidays best, the holiday music is playing, and a festive atmosphere seems to permeate everything going on in the country. It's really hard to blame anyone
During the holidays each day it is special.Like on Monday, there will be a carnival and on Tuesday no one goes to work.This doesn't stop until the holidays stop.The ideas can repeat and repeat over and over but they can make som new ideas for that pacific day so it can be different.
For my family, we use these holidays and traditions to help keep the family together. We have these specific holidays because they are what my both my parents grew up with along with the rest of their family from previous generations. Our annual pig roast on the first Saturday of August on the other hand,was started by my father and is used to bring all our family and friends together before the kids in our family and neighborhood have to go back to school and let them have a fun time for both children and adults.
In todays world there are at least 1 Billion families. Which means there has to be at least 1 Billion family traditions. Family traditions can be many different things but my family traditions all can relate back to dysfunctionalism. There are more dysfunctional families in the united states than normal families. More than 50% of happiness comes from dysfunctional families and still, the celebrate Birthdays, Religious Holidays and Casual Holidays . Can you imagine Holidays being the root of our happiness.
There are many holidays to celebrate, for example Christmas, Hanukkah, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentine's day, Easter,and a few more, but i'm just going to go over a few of them.
According to Richard H Robins (2014), “The creation of the consumer did not stop in 1930” (p.21). In the earlier days of the consumer, holidays were known as a hassle for businesses and where seen as an interruption of business. It wasn’t until the late nineteenth century when businesses began to realize that they could take advantage of these holidays and actually increase their sales and gain business. The author really makes it clear how the changes in the way holidays are viewed affected businesses. He goes on to specifically point out Valentines Day and how it became growingly popular and eventually turned into a commercial product. Soon after, other holidays, like mothers day began to have the same impact; people were consuming more
Everyone has a favorite holiday, mine happens to be christmas. Christmas is not just fun and games, it has a lot of history behind it. For example, traditions, Christmas around the world, and Christmas in the past.
Holidays are an important part of being an American. Our generation says it's the things you do to show you're an American. As an American we have many holidays they are celebrated around our country that nobody else has a reason to celebrate. An example is the holiday Independence Day (the Fourth of July). No one around the world celebrates the Fourth of July but the Americans. We celebrate this day because it shows when we first got our independence by adopting the Declaration of Independence. This broke the country out of the thirteen colonies. It also shows that we didn’t have to follow another's rules and became the United States of America.
By the beginning of the 19th century, barely anyone celebrated christmas and it wasn’t really considered a holiday
Every country has holidays and they have different ways of celebrating it. For example, Christmas in my home country, there’s so many things we do to celebrate Christmas. We do my secret angel. We chose a day, and in every week on that day we get together and exchange gifts, but the person you give the gifts to,do not know you are the one giving them the gifts until the last day of the secret angel. Also in the middle of the night we go around singing Christmas song to every sleeping neighbor, we call that las mañanitas, people often get mad because they need to wake up early in the morning to go to work, but that’s what makes it even funnier. On Christmas eve we have the family dinner and after that even though everyone has enough food for days, you will see our mothers taking food to the next door neighbor.On the 31st the whole neighborhood gets together in front of this store and they make a big asopao, which is a soup made out of rice, It's actually really good. We sit, share an amazing time dancing Bachata, merengue tipico. Just dancing our asses out, and having a great time. We wait until 12:00 am for the cañonaso which is where the fireworks come, and we hug and wish each other a happy new year. In One Hundred and seventieth things are not like that. People don’t get together to celebrate Christmas, we don’t go around together annoying people, the family just gets together on Christmas eve and wait until 12:00 am to open our gifts. I thought been in New
There is a lot of Christmas traditions in this world. Every American family celebrates Christmas in a different way! My family's celebration of christmas is an example of a typical American Christmas. My sisters go to a private school (Immanuel Lutheran School). Every year they put on this Christmas Program at our church, and like always it turns out adorable with the cute songs they sing to the intriguing way they act out their parts. Being an American means you get to celebrate different holidays in some places you’re not even allowed too,we have freedom in America.
There are numerous specific customs, traditions, beliefs, cultures, and heritages. The United States is an extremely diverse country and has a bunch of these different ways of life. We need to be able to understand and respect the particular beliefs of people.
It’s a family tradition to gather for the holidays. From Christmas to Thanksgiving, we celebrate the holidays together. Whether it’s the 4th of July or Independence Day to you, the tradition is the same for us.
Christmas and Thanksgiving is a time of year when a vast majority of people are happy and/or festive, I am one of those people. Many families have traditions around the Holidays meaning something they do every year some go pick out a tree others hang stockings, however my family is different.
Christmas is a practice from American culture; it marks the birthday of Jesus Christ. This holiday is celebrated because to remind people who celebrate this holiday to gift love and happiness. It is celebrated mostly by Christians due to their beliefs of Christ. The reason that every kid wants to celebrate this holiday is the factor of free presents.

Christmas Day is celebrated as a major festival and public holiday in countries around the world, including many whose populations are mostly non-Christian. In some non-Christian areas, periods of former colonial rule introduced the celebration like in Hong Kong and Japan, where Christmas is popular despite
