The Festivus for the rest of us! Just kidding. I would say New Year's at my wife's relatives. We also have a great party!

Nothing beats Christmas, here in Iceland it is very Festive and important to most people. You join your family on the eve of december 24 and you eat the most scruptious meal of the year and then we open presents and then eat some more, chocolate and sweets and all kinds of yummy things.

Christmas Eve when my dad used to take us down to Glide Memorial (a church in SF) to donate our favorite toys, help feed homeless, and donate some of our allowance to the Reverend Cecil Williams who has done amazing things for the city's homeless population. Then, we'd go to my family's house and play White Elephant surrounded by loved ones, booze and great food. An upcoming family tradition of Nando's that I can't wait to participate in: in Puerto Rico, it's called Paranda and on Christmas Eve, neighbors go to each other's houses- once people come to your door, you must feed everyone, welcome them in, ply them with booze and grab whatever will make music and join them onto the next house. It's a parade of your neighbors onto each house that plays music throughout the streets and ends in the Plaza where there is a ton of food, music, drinks and dancing. Yeah, can't wait for that one! Do you see a theme? LOL....

Way too many to choose from. I like Thanksgiving here in the U.S. but nothing beats Town Fiestas back home--you can go house to house to eat unbelievable amounts of food and drink lots of liquor. I think this tradition was inspired by the Spaniards who occupied the P.I. for more than 100 years.
