  •  I voted for Thanksgiving. (8+ / 0-)

    Because its the holiday where members of my family are actually able to get together.

      alive as my sister had more time off to travel from Georgia to the northeast. She is a teacher so it was easier for her to get together with all of our family in PA Christmas break. Thanksgiving, she stayed in Atlanta and spent it with friends for the past 30 yrs.

      She stopped flying home for Christmas after they died.
      Instead, she spends a month here in PA over the summer during summer break. She never spent a month at my parents but she would rather drive here and back in the summer.  

      It was something I did for her, I told her I no longer expect her to deal with the airlines and flying at christmas just to be with hubby and me...come up summer and stay for a month is great !!!

      So we started doing Christmas In July celebration with gifts and dinner, the works...Granted we individually do our own christmas thing in our homes at Christmas....But we are really loving our Christmas In July too..

      Plus I throw her a birthday party in July when her actual birthday is September so I can make her a cake. As athletic director, September is her busiest month.
