Top 5 Holidays In The US Which You Can Enjoy

In the United States, national holidays are only a handful. There are only 10 national holidays over here, and, boy, Americans make sure they do what they can do on these holidays—relax and enjoy.

As noted above, these holidays are only 10 in number. This means, that if you wish to come here and enjoy the vibe of any of the country’s holidays, you have 10 options to choose from. I, however, will write down 5 which are most popular and should affect your itinerary in case you decide to come here. Plus, cutting down to 5 makes it easier for you decide.

So, let us take a look at 5 national holidays in the United States which can enhance your travel experiences.

  1. Thanksgiving
    I was introduced to Thanksgiving in greater detail while watching Friends. It is as great a deal as it was shown in the series, and made me kind of jealous of the whole celebrations. In case, you are not aware or sure of what Thanksgiving is all about, let me give you an idea.
    Celebrated on varying dates (depending on the country), Thanksgiving is essentially a day when families come together and show thankfulness for the good harvest. Despite having roots in English traditions, the occasion is celebrated by everyone in the country regardless of what background they belong to. To many, it is an opportunity to bring the entire family together at the dinner table and indulge in merriment.
  2. Christmas
    Christmas should be an occasion to celebrate, no matter who you are and where you live. Despite having a religious character, Christmas has become an increasingly secular festival marked by parties, dinners, and music.
    Of course, you know when this festival happens, but what you should know that Christmas in the United States is celebrated with utmost rejoice and fanfare. You should certainly consider celebrating it along with others and find out for yourself how people over there celebrate that day! Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
  3. Halloween
    It is impossible to not have Halloween on the list of top 5 holidays in the United States. Halloween falls on 31st October and is a cause of major celebration, not just in the United States but across many other countries. It is observed by Western Christians, traditionally speaking; however, it has become a secular occasion too.
    Typical Halloween activities involve costume parties, trick or treat bell calls, jack-o’-lanterns, pranks, bonfires, and spooky games. If you are here in the country during this time of the year, then you must participate alongside fellow Americans and indulge in one of the wildest experiences you would ever have.
  4. Independence Day
    Like any other country, the United States celebrates its Independence Day with great fervour. It is observed on 4th of July and marks the publication of the Declaration of Independence from the colonial British Empire in 1776. It was on this day the thirteen colonies became independent states.
    On every 4th of July, visitors can expect to see firework shows and gatherings. There are many parades organized throughout the country, which you can attend and enjoy. It is also one of those national holidays when American families go out and have picnics the most. So, be prepared for crowded streets and parks everywhere!
  5. St. Patrick’s Day
    Celebrated on 17th March, St. Patrick’s Day is also called the Feast of Saint Patrick. Who was Saint Patrick? Well, he was 5th century Christian Missionary who introduced Christianity in Ireland and eventually occupied a prominent place in the Irish society.
    He eventually died on 17th March, AD 461, and since the 17th century, this day has become an official feast day for Christians. The day celebrates Saint Patrick and the introduction of Christianity in Ireland.
    This day is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over the country. Celebratory activities involve parades, donning green outfits, attending church services, drinking Irish whiskey and beer and whatnot.

So, watch Americans go all festive on this day, and get along with them to have your own share of fun.
