  113. Hi!! Hmm.. I wanna try my luck! ^^ ..
    My favorite holiday, is Christmas Day..
    It serves as Family Day.. In my case, as Pinoy’s culture, REUNION!! .. My mother has 6 siblings.. So imagine all of them with their own families, gathering together for Noche Buena.. ^

  114. My fave holiday is the august bank holiday in the UK, especially if its sunny. then we can relax in the garden whilst my hubby cooks a lovely bbq.
    Thank you

  115. First of all,I wanna greet you.HI!! I’m a girl from Malaysia.=)
    My favorite holiday is school holiday..School students in Malaysia get the school holidays which are in Mac,June and the long school holiday,starting from November untill early of January.I love school holiday because it is the most appropriate time for me to gather with my family members,I’ve lived in hostel since I was 13years old then I entered a boarding school when I was 16 years old.Life in hostel was quite difficult sometimes especially when I was in the boarding school.As for my family,we only got to eat all together and went for a vacation when it was school holiday.Now I am 19 years old and I only have my semester vacation.I really miss my precious moments during school holidays because it’s difficult for my family to be all together since my father and my sister are busy with their work.
    Lastly,I wish you can spending your times with your children as much as you can while they are growing up.=)
