There are 12 months and 365 days in a year and throughout the months and days, there are also holidays. Holidays means a celebration that has happened in the past. There are many types of holidays that serve different types of purpose. Some are known for federal holidays, seasonal holidays, and days that consider a non working which serves the purpose of a certain holiday. The most popular holidays are known as federal holidays. Federal holidays are the predetermined days recognized by the government in which federal employees receive a paid day off from work, so long as they are in a non-essential federal office. Most all federal holidays are also observed by state and local governments and the more common federal holidays are almost always recognized by the private sector as well. The federal holidays for each year are established in the federal law by Congress. The federal holidays include holidays such as New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. New Year's Day falls on the first of January and marks the start of a new year; it marks the end of New Year's Eve celebrations in the United States and gives many Americans a chance to remember the previous year. The day of Martin Luther King Day celebrates his life and achievements; he’s an influential American civil rights leader. Washington's Birthday is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of February. It originally honored the life and work of George Washington, the first president of the United States. Now, other presidents are also honored on this day, which is why it is often known as Presidents' Day. Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formally known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Independence Day is annually celebrated on July 4 and is often known as "the Fourth of July".
The meaning of holidays is essentially a time we embark moments and share
time with love one’s. In the United Sates, holidays are a very superior time that many of us
embrace. Many can think back on holidays that they’ve encountered and recollect favorable
moments. For many, it is the time of the year when people seem to grasp inside of one another
and distinguish the best of things. Clearly, to some amount the “holiday season” gives people a

Road tripping with family is supposed to be fun and exciting. It gives me an opportunity to jump in the car and explore somewhere or something that I have never experienced. My 2010 trip to Lampung was both nerve wrecking and exciting at the same time because I got to be in certain situations that I have never been in before.
I remember the first time I went to Lampung, my family and I were in rush hour traffic. My heart was thumping in my chest so fast because I have never seen traffic….

Every once a year, someone always has that one tradition they like to do on a holiday. Well, mine so happens to be on Christmas. Every year on Christmas, my family and I like to play fun games after opening our presents and done having dinner. Some may have the same thing every year just like my family, but in my opinion, I don’t think it’s the actual same. My family and I like to be different every year.
Even though we still buy each other gifts, there are….
