My favorite holiday is Christmas. From the beginning, my grandmother and I would always celebrate it with lights and the holiday music. Now with my daughter, I am passing on the tradition of decorating the home, baking cakes, and singing Christmas songs. My favorite beach would be the Oceanfront beach in Virginia Beach. I was born and raised in Virginia and every summer, we would go to the beach. Being so close to home, I love it.

I have never been on a mountain, so off hand, my favorite mountain would be Mount Everest, because that is the one I am most familiar with. My favorite city would be Los Angeles. I love the history of the city and the opportunity that is there.

Many people are called to a specific way of living out the call to holiness in a state of life (vocation) characterized by undertaking a lifelong commitment by vow or consecration. Some, however, are called to be living witnesses to Christ without assuming a lifelong commitment. Others are called to dedicate their lives to Christ in blessed singleness but without changing their state in life.

The beauty and burden of the life of the single person is often overlooked in today's world, as the single person's life can have a spiritual dimension. While it is sometimes said to be the hardest way of life to live, it is definitely not meant to be a life of loneliness and solitude.

Most of us exist as singles for some transitional amount of time, prior to our discernment and entrance into the married, consecrated, or clerical states. For those who do not enter the more particular states of life by vow, ordination, or consecration, there is an opportunity and a freedom to give themselves completely in service to others.

Canada Day is celebrated because this is a holiday that had taken a long time before it was taken seriously by people. This was started back in the late 1800s, but people did not celebrate it because they were still under the British regime. They have also gone through a lot of wars and other problems. It was only in 1982 when people started taking this seriously.

A lot of people have started making an effort to create traditions that will be passed on to the next generations. People began to cook some barbecue and drink with their family members and friends on this day. This is the time when they can forget about all of their troubles, even for just a short while to commemorate the time when they have become free as a nation.

There was a time when Canada Day was not as widely celebrated as it is being celebrated right now. Over the years, the Canadians decided that they are going to pay more attention to the holiday. The primary purpose of this is to make Canadians remember the things that they had gone through before they started to reach the freedom that they feel they deserve.

Do take note that not all Canadians feel this way. Some may think that they are still British citizens, so they do not celebrate this holiday that much. This used to be called Dominion Day, but over the years, it has managed to become more popular.

The freedom of the people of the United States is fundamental to them. They like to make sure that they are indeed the Land of the Free. They got their independence on July 4, 1776. This was the time when the American colonies finally severed their ties with Great Britain. This explains why July 4 is being celebrated by Americans wholeheartedly.

This is a day full of celebration complete with a lot of food, alcohol, and fireworks display at night. There are even some Americans who say that this might be their favorite holiday of all the available holidays. It is not a surprise, especially since a lot of Americans are patriotic.
