Three Different Holidays and Their Traditions

One holiday that is my favorite is Christmas.  I think Christmas is a wonderful holiday because it gives family that can’t see each other a whole awful lot to see each other for a family eating or opening presents. A few facts about Christmas I found interesting is that the word Noel entered the English language in the late 1300’s and originated from the Latin word “natalis” which stands for “Day of Birth”. Another fact is that the letter X in Xmas is a Greek abbreviation for Christ and I got this information here.

Another holiday that is my favorite is Thanksgiving because it’s a time to give thanks to people you love and care for along with meeting up with people you don’t see often to have one big dinner or lunch. A few facts about Thanksgiving is that Thanksgiving was held in Fall 1621 with 50 Pilgrims and 90 Wampanoag Native Americans and it lasted for three days. Also Thanksgiving didn’t become a holiday until 200 years ago. I got this information from here. 

Lastly my favorite holiday is Veterans Day because we all get to thanks and praise our soldiers who are fighting for our freedom, safety, and our lives. Veterans day was established on Nov. 11,1919 to celebrate the end of World War 1 and became a national holiday at the beginning of 1938. Another fact Is that in 1958 President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially changed the name from Armistice Day to Veterans day. I got this information here
