Christmas day is the best day of the year because on Christmas people can exchange gifts, eat excellent meals, and get together with family. Christmas has been the number one holiday for all children because of their fantasy with Santa Clause and his reindeer. This holiday is looked forward to as soon as the day after the past Christmas.
Christmas is the one and only best day to exchange gifts. This is the day where the most gifts are given. Children wake up early in the morning and furiously run to the Christmas tree to see what "Santa" brought them. Parents also get in on the exchange not only by buying gifts for their significant other and children, but also dressing up as Santa and actually bring gifts into the house.
Families sit down to the most excellent meal of the year following the opening of presents. This is one of the greatest aspects of Christmas because there are very few times that a family will slave over the hot stove to prepare a multi-course meal that leaves leftovers for days. Also this is usually the only time that parents make just what their children want to eat. Christmas meal is, in the most part, almost replica of Thanksgiving meal in its massiveness. .
With all of the food present, there is always a gathering of families. Christmas is one of the best holidays that a family can get together and have a great time. Family members that live far distances away from home will come back to celebrate Christmas and see their distant family. In the most part, children will go back to parents" houses to celebrate Christmas; which makes it very special for the parents. It makes it so the parents can see their children and even sometimes, their grandchildren. .
