Which is the best month?
It is not like people really argue about what the best month is. If you ask a little kid he will probably say the month that his birthday is in. And obviously there are certain events that don't have a month that they always happen in (i.e. parties, certain holidays, etc.), so one year November might be a great month because you went to three birthday parties and had thanksgiving just like every other year, but one time you might hate November because your dog died, your wallet was stolen, and the gravy at thanksgiving was actually from last year and you got food poisoning. So it's pretty hard to talk about your favorite month without considering personal things that happened in past occurrences of a particular month. It is also difficult to say which month is best without considering one's religious beliefs, as this shakes things up even though December and April both tend to have holidays from many religions. But nonetheless, here are my ideas on the months.
My birthday is in April. When I was younger Easter was always a fun holiday for me, as we would always go Easter egg hunting. Plus most schools have a spring vacation in April. This gives a lot of props to the sunny spring month that definitely make it a contender.
December, of course, is a month that immediately pops up in most people's mind. Almost half the month is taken up by vacation and many religions have holidays in this month somewhere. For me, Christmas continues to be my favorite holiday and is always a time where I get to see relatives who I only see once or twice a year otherwise. On top of that, in places outside the "temperate" zones you start to get snow and the long break is usually filled with sledding and sometimes skiing/snowboarding. It segways I to the new year really well.
You could make an argument for any summer month but out of all of them July stands out to me. Unlike June which most kids end up taking exams in or August where you always try and cram a bunch of things in before going to school again, June is smushed between two summer months and generally has no boring organized things besides maybe a dentist or doctors appointment. For me it is special because not only do my brother, sister, and mother share birthdays in this month, I attend a three-and-a-half week sleep away camp during this time which is always one of the highlights of my year. When you throw the Fourth of July into the mix it starts to make thinks almost unfair.
February may be shorter than all the others, but it still amounts to a good lot! Just as in April you have a vacation that literally takes up almost the entire month. Even if you don't travel anywhere it's a break from school and there is lots of time to do all the nothing you've been wanting to do for so long. Also, being a person who enjoys theater and acting in plays, the final performances of a lot of productions end up taking place in the first week up February before vacation takes over. There have been years where I have literally gone straight from the epic cast party to the airport on my way to some relaxing place with palm trees. My dad also has a birthday in this month, and Valentine's Day takes place on the fourteenth.
If Halloween was a day later November would probably be at the top of my list. Besides having Thanksgiving which gives you not only a ton of delicious food and fun with relatives from a zillion miles away but also gives almost a week-long break from school. For me it is when the basketball season starts and the football season ends. This way a get a little bit of my two favorite sports rolled into one. But that first day of November slightly kills the vibe as you'll be sure to spend it with a sick stomach and too much time in the restroom.
The last month I will talk about is June. I know I already talked about exams but the end up the school year also brings good things. Class trips and end-of-the-year events, graduation parties and moving parties (so bittersweet regardless of who is.moving, because if you like them the party is epic but the fact that they're moving stinks; if you hate them then the party feels weird but the fact that they are moving is Hallelujah with a capital H) and the fact that summer is so close you can almost taste the mint chip ice cream dripping on your cargo shorts, they all make June a fun-filled, if a bit weary began, month.
I won't state my personal favorite as I am somewhat undecided, but I hope the ones I talked about where relevant and you agreed. Maybe you are completely committed to a month I didn't talk about at all and I am sure you have completely just reasons. But re-read my big fat paragraph at the start. I can't exactly speak for everybody.
