    It's the end of the year, with lots of holiday seasons being celebrated. But considering all holiday season, What's your favorite?

    Although Christmas, and other holiday seasons that take place around this time of year, are great at supporting gratefulness, giving, and cheer, I find that they also bring out some of the crappiness in people. So it's hard for me to view Christmas as one of my favorite holidays. I hate hearing about how someone was trampled to death because a crowd of people tried to swarm a retail store to get the best deal that day.

    Personally, I love Halloween. You get to be creative, dress up, run around and be silly for a few hours, and if you happen to have a sweet tooth, there's tons of candy. This year my wife and I did Joker and Harley Quin.

    What's your favorite holiday?

    haloween is good if your in universal studios in florida, its a great experience and something i'd do again in a heartbeat, I think christmas is too commercialized and not what it used to be in the past.

    I agree with the "too commercialized". We do celebrate Christmas, and our 2 young boys do get gifts from Santa, but the "Santa" gifts are always something small and thoughtful. We don't want them thinking Santa brings some kids crazy expensive items, like Xbox's, while other kids get little to nothing. Christmas isn't supposed to be about what you got. It's supposed to be about what YOU did to help out or give to others. So we always make our kids do something meaningful, so they can see how less fortunate others are, and we hope this makes them realize when they get older, that helping out others less fortunate and giving is much more rewarding than receiving.

    Summer. I'm from the UK so any time we get sunshine is amazing. I like Christmas, as long as I'm inside and looking out.

    Christmas is definitely my favorite since that's when the whole family gets together! Also, food.

    The Thanksgiving to Christmas/New Years period is probably my favorite. Go to visit the Legion for Thanksgiving and get together with all of the in town family for Christmas, and hang out with friends in between and on New Years.
