Most Popular Holidays Around the World

  • Every country has a favourite festival that is distinct in its own way. People always look forward to their favourite holidays in order to spend time with family and friends and make them memorable. Each festival depicts its heritage and religious deities, and participating in the celebrations helps us to embrace our lives.

    Holidays not only bring new life into our hectic schedules, but they also remind us how fortunate we are to be alive. We've compiled a list of some of the most popular holidays from around the world.


    Christmas is one of the most important festivals in the world; the holiday season is celebrated lavishly in the West to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. Every year on December 25th, the day Jesus Christ was born, Christmas is celebrated. Thousands of people participate in the festival, each in their own unique way. Getting a Christmas tree, decorating it, hanging stockings by the fireplace, and making Christmas snacks are just a few of the few traditions that people observe during the Christmas holy week. The tradition of singing Christmas carols and songs is also carried out with faith and zeal.


    Diwali, or the Festival of Lights, is one of the most important festivals in India, and it is widely celebrated. On this day, the entire neighbourhood, including houses, streets, and shops, is decked out in beautiful lights. Diwali is a five-day festival that begins in late October and lasts for five days. There are many feasts, exchanges of special Diwali cards and gifts, fireworks, and time spent with loved ones during these celebrations. Many people believe that gambling will bring them luck for the remainder of the year.


    Halloween is now a popular holiday for both children and adults. Trick or treating, carving jack-o'-lanterns, costume parties, spooky campfire stories, and horror movie marathons are all popular ways for people all over the world to celebrate Halloween. Going trick or treating is a fond memory for many Western children, who dress up as ghosts or fictional characters and carry an empty bucket to be filled with sweets and candies. They then go to people's homes and ask if they want to be tricked or excuse themselves by offering "treats."

    New Year

    Fireworks displays are held in many cities around the world as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the last day of the year (December 31). New Year's Day celebrations differ greatly across cultures, and certain parts of the world have unique traditions associated with the holiday. Celebrations such as parties, concerts, parades, church services, family meals, and so on are held throughout the world on January 1 as part of New Year's Day, and many begin the day before (on New Year's Eve) and continue past midnight on January 1.


    Holi is an Indian festival of colours held in March to commemorate the end of winter. It is also a symbol of evil triumphing over good. Massive bonfires were lit the night before the celebration to represent the burning of evil spirits. The streets turn into a rainbow of colours the next day as people throw coloured powder at one another. Each colour represents something symbolic. Squirt guns and water balloons are also used to squirt water on each other. Later that day, they will gather for a festive meal.
