The holiday season is a time to celebrate, but which day is the most merry?

The 16 School Days of Christmas: Which is the best day of the season?

Anticipation, family time make Christmas Eve the best

Christmas is one of those holidays where it is not just a one-day celebration, but one that lasts a season. It cannot be confined to just one day because of how worldwide the holiday is, but if one day perfectly describes the Christmas feeling, it is Christmas Eve.

For kids, Christmas Eve is the day that they try to get to bed as soon as they can so Santa can bring them all the presents they asked for. 

But as kids try to fall asleep, the excitement builds and they cannot sleep. That feeling is unlike any other: Knowing that in a few hours, everyone will open a whole lot of new toys.

Christmas Eve is a day when families bake cookies for Santa and spend almost all day together in preparation for Christmas day. The feelings associated with this day are the best ones experienced during the holiday.

Christmas is a great day as well. Kids get to try on all the new clothes they got and play with all the new things they got. But outside of that, it’s actually nothing much. Christmas just is underwhelming after the first couple of hours.

In my family, we all get together on Christmas Eve to celebrate with each other. Christmas is more of a day for going to church and talking to friends about all the gifts you received.

Growing up, everyone thinks Christmas is the greatest day of their lives. But as kids get older and want clothes rather than toys, it unfortunately becomes more of just a shopping spree rather than gift giving. 

This is really a topic that depends heavily on each person’s family traditions. Some families celebrate on Christmas Eve, some on Christmas, and some on both. 

Meanwhile, people have seemed to have forgotten the real celebration of Christmas and have just turned it into a gift-giving celebration rather than a celebration of Jesus’ birth.

Christmas Day is the culmination of the season

There is no day that compares to Dec. 25. Everyone is gathered together drinking warm drinks and opening presents because there is nothing better to do. Your only worry in the world is what your next present will be. 

The feeling everyone gets waking up on Christmas Day compares to no other: Knowing that in a few moments, the whole family will surround a Christmas tree that is all lit up, with everyone ready to open presents.

It is a great time to spend with family and friends, and the Christmas spirit raises the mood for everyone. 

Christmas Eve is a great day, but it is nowhere close to Christmas Day. There is more gift giving and receiving on Christmas Day, and everyone gets to see more people and do more things. 

Christmas Day is also Jesus Christ’s birthday, which is often overlooked when it shouldn’t be. 

People get caught up in the Christmas spirit a little too much and forget the real reason to celebrate.

Without Christmas Day, how would there be a Christmas Eve? Christmas Eve is only a celebration leading up to the real deal, Christmas Day.

All day during Christmas Eve, all anyone can think about is the next day. Both days are great holidays, but Christmas is definitely superior. 

Think about Christmas movies or songs. They are always about Christmas Day, not the little brother, Christmas Eve. 

There is a lot of overthinking and paranoia on Christmas Eve. People want to make sure everyone gets a good gift, and people have to plan parties and prepare. On Christmas Day, no one has a care in the world. Everyone can kick back and relax and finally get a break from the crazy world. 

Christmas is a beautiful time of the year and it will always be a fun time, but Christmas Day compares to no other celebration during this season.
