Holidays are just Christmas, Easter, summer, and October, ie, the school holidays. Halloween is just a day - you maybe go guising at night if your under 12, or have a relative/friend under 12 to go round with, or go to a party with some friends, but we don't generally do much.
It's really interesting how we have people from so many different cultures here on the Lex.

I love both, but if we could list our favorites in the appropriate group, we won't be talking at cross purposes here. I mean, I would hate to think that someone would spend a vast amount of time searching for a Halloween reference in The Corpse Bride when there wasn't one.
Goodnight Elizabeth wrote:Even here in the States, we have different categories for holidays. My work recognizes MLK day, Good Friday, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The banks in town recognize all those plus Presidents Day and Columbus Day. Plus, we also have Mothers Day and Fathers Day - but they are held on Sundays, so schools and banks are closed anyway.
