Christmas is one of the most wonderful time of the year, and for those who partake in it, there is such a variety of festive ways one can dress up for the holidays. Whether it be wearing Christmas socks, sweaters, scarfs, elf ears, or Santa hats, everyone has the potential to be festive for the season. Compared to any other commonly celebrated holiday, Christmas also has the most activities involved with it. For instance, people will make snowmen, mistletoes, or other Christmas related crafts, as well as picking out and decorating the perfect Christmas tree. Aside from all of the other potential holidays that are celebrated annually, Christmas can considerably be the most diverse, colorful, and festive. Multiple songs have been written regarding the spirit of Christmas, and countless novels and movies are always being released around the holiday time. Home Alone, Elf, the famous The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and the classic Frosty the Snowman are always on the list of go to movies. And huddling around the fireplace while enjoying homemade Christmas cookies is the ideal combination. Other people stick to their yearly traditions of wearing matching ugly Christmas sweaters, making gingerbread houses, doing a secret Santa, or celebrating advent. And of course, there are cultural variations and ways to celebrate the holiday season as well. Some people celebrate Black Peter, Krampus, midnight mass, Epiphany in Spain, Las Posadas in Mexico, or St. Nicholas day. Yule logs, Christmas carols, candy canes, Christmas cards, and the twelve days of Christmas are all aspects that are optional holiday celebrations and activities that define the season. Even when it comes to economics, Christmas is a season that allows business to gain a vast amount of interest through advertisement and sales of the people’s favorites holiday things. So if Christmas is one of your favorite seasons, grab a friend and dress in red and white, wear your reindeer ears, Santa hats, ugly sweaters, and Christmas socks and go caroling down the streets or build a gingerbread house while watching Polar Express. Although there are so many holidays throughout the year, Christmas is the one with the most involvement, not just in America, but worldwide.
