Western winter holidays in the Northern Hemisphere

Christmas and holiday season

See also: List of winter festivals and Chinese New Year

The following holidays are observed to some extent at the same time during the

Southern hemisphere’s summer, with the exception of Winter Solstice.
Thanksgiving – (fourth Thursday in November in United States) — Holiday

generally observed as an expression of gratitude, traditionally to God, for

the autumn harvest. It is traditionally celebrated with a meal shared among

friends and family in which turkey is eaten. It is celebrated by many as a

secular holiday, and in the USA marks the beginning of the “holiday season”.

In Canada, since the climate is colder, the harvest season begins (and ends)

earlier and thus, Thanksgiving takes place on the second Monday in October.
Black Friday – (Day after Thanksgiving in United States) — Day after

Thanksgiving. In the USA, it is generally viewed as the first day of the

Christmas shopping season. Stores generally give sales and discounts to

attract customers.
Winter Solstice, Yule – (Winter solstice, around 21–22 December in the

northern hemisphere and 21–22 June in the southern hemisphere) — The

celebrations on the winter solstice, the longest night and shortest day of the

year, are traditionally marked with anything that symbolizes or encourages

life. Decorations of evergreens, bright objects and lights; singing songs,

giving gifts, feasting and romantic events are often included. For Neopagans

this is the celebration of the death and rebirth of the sun and is one of the

eight sabbats on the wheel of the year.
Hanukkah – (26 Kislev – 2/3 Tevet – almost always in December) — Jewish

holiday celebrating the defeat of Seleucid forces who had tried to prevent

Israel from practicing Judaism, and also celebrating the miracle of the

Menorah lights burning for eight days with only enough olive oil for one day.
Christmas Eve – (24 December) — Day before Christmas. Observances usually

include big feasts at night to celebrate the day to come. It is the supposed

night that Santa Claus delivers presents to all the good children of the

world.
Christmas Day – (25 December) — Christian holiday commemorating the

traditional birth-date of Jesus. Observances include gift-giving, the

decoration of trees and houses, and Santa Claus folktales.
Kwanzaa (USA) – (26 December – 1 January) — A modern American invention held

from 26 December to 1 January honoring African-American heritage, primarily in

the United States. It was invented in 1966 by black activist and marxist Ron

Karenga.
St Stephen’s Day or Second Day of Christmas (26 December) — Holiday observed

in many European countries.
Boxing Day (26 December or 27 December) — Holiday observed in many

Commonwealth countries on the first non-Sunday after Christmas.
New Year’s Eve – (31 December) — Night before New Year’s Day. Usually observed

with celebrations and festivities in anticipation of the new year.
New Year’s Day – (1 January) — Holiday observing the first day of the year in

the Gregorian calendar.

National holidays by country

Thanksgiving – A North American holiday observed as an expression of

gratitude, often to God, and celebration of the harvest. It is traditionally

celebrated with a meal shared among friends and family in which turkey and

fall vegetables are eaten. In the United States, the holiday is celebrated on

the fourth Thursday of November, and celebrates a story of pilgrims breaking

bread with Native Americans. In Canada, where the harvest is earlier,

Thanksgiving takes place on the second Monday in October and is a celebration

of nature, the harvest and the end of summer. In Canada the observance of

Thanksgiving is more secular, but widely celebrated across the country.
