Christmas is king — at least when it comes to holidays.  A new Harris Poll shows that the late December date in which Christians mark the birth of Jesus leads the list as America’s favorite holiday.  Christmas ranks first among both genders and all generations, with both men and women and adults 18 and older saying it’s the holiday they enjoy the most.  Thanksgiving follows in second place, and again takes the number two spot across the generations and genders.  Halloween ranks third overall, and also among women and adults under the age of 47.  Men and adults 47 and older prefer the Fourth of July over Halloween.  July 4th is fourth on the overall list, followed by Easter.
