There are a lot of holidays in the USA. Many of them are associated with the history of the nation. There are also some holidays that have come from the old colonial days. The main holidays of the USA are New Year;s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. The New Year;s Eve is a time for merriment. Most Americans spend this night with friends at home or in restaurants. Thousands of people gather in New York in Times Square to see the New Year in. The Tournament of Roses takes place in Pasadena, California, on January 1 each year. Prizes are given to the cities with the most unusual floral compositions. At Easter there is a tradition for people to buy new clothes. After church services many people take walks along the streets of their towns, wearing their new Easter hats and suits. This is usually called the “Easter Parade”. Memorial Day comes on May 30. It is dedicated to the memory of those who died for America in different wars. The national flags are put on the graves of soldiers on this day. The fourth of July, an Independence Day, is the biggest national holiday of the USA. On this day in 1776 a document, known as the Declaration of Independence, was adopted. During this holiday American cities have parades, people shoot off fire-works in parks and fields. Thanksgiving Day comes on the fourth Tuesday in November. When the first settlers landed in America, their first year was very hard and 50 of 100 people died. But the Indians taught people how to plant corn and wild vegetables and in autumn they got a large harvest. Thanksgiving Day was their holiday, the day of giving thanks to God. It is a family holiday and Americans try to gather all family at home on this day. There are also some holidays which are not celebrated nation-wide, but only by each state separately. Probably the most widely celebrated holidays in the United States of America are Thanksgiving, Independence Day and Christmas. Thanksgiving Day is observed on the fourth Thursday of November.

Generally, picnics, parades and firework displays are held all over the country on this day. Christmas is the most important religious holiday for Christians. Gift-giving is very common at Christmas. American children look forward to Christmas morning, when they find gifts brought by Santa Claus. Other important holidays are Easter, Labor Day and Memorial Day.
