Understanding the U.S. Holiday Season 2019

The U.S. holiday season starts with Thanksgiving day and lasts all the way into the New Year (January 1). During this time frame, there are many holidays taking place such as Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and the New Year.

How do we celebrate the holiday season in the U.S.?

It varies by individuals’ traditions and choice. Most people take some time off from work, some will visit their family and friends and eat special meals, and some people will give gifts to each other. Others find it especially important to share their good fortune with the less fortunate through volunteering at food pantries or through programs such as Toys for Tots.

On New Year’s eve, people reflect on all they’ve accomplished during the previous year. There are parties on New Year’s Eve in anticipation of staying awake until midnight, when the New Year officially starts and fireworks light up the sky in local neighborhoods and on national television. Some people create resolutions to accomplish personal goals for the next year.

Whether you’re already working with us in the U.S., or are interested in joining PassportUSA, we hope you have a great season.

Thanksgiving in the USA is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November every year. This year it is on November 28.

How do we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S.?

This is a day dedicated to give special thanks in appreciation for everything we are grateful for. Some people run in local races in the morning called “turkey trots” — this is a great way to pre-burn the extra calories that the day’s typical feasts will deliver.

There are also parades locally and on national television. American professional football games are hosted all day too. Most people typically have a roasted turkey dinner with potatoes, gravy, and pie with their friends and families. It is considered one of the busiest travel days in the U.S. with many people visiting friends and family who live out of town.
