In the spirit of the holiday season coming up with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, I asked students and staff around campus what they believed was the best holiday. I then tallied up all their votes to see which holiday is scientifically the greatest.

Here are the results:

Christmas- 24
Halloween- 14
Thanksgiving- 3
Their Birthday- 10
New Years- 1
Presidents Week- 1

It appears many people chose their favorite holiday based on not having school on that day, as well as their personal connection to the holiday, be it a family tradition or it being their actual birthday.

Happy holidays!
