Thomas Mullen ENG-111 Prof. Fritz 11/7/16 Christmas, observed on December 25, is a Christian holiday that celebrates the  birth of Jesus Christ. Christians of different denominations go to church on Christmas.  Many Catholics go to midnight mass. In the United States, however, the holiday has a  much more secular tone and is celebrated throughout the country. Many people,  regardless of their religion, put up and decorate a Christmas tree. The tree can be a real evergreen or it can be an artificial tree. Lights, strings, tinsel, and even popcorn can be  used to decorate a Christmas tree. On the top of the tree is a star or an angel. The  decorations are usually red and green. The purpose of a Christmas tree is to have a central location to place gifts.  According to legend, a jolly fat man with a beard, named Santa Claus, leaves presents  under the tree. Children in the U.S. often write lists of things they want Santa to bring

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
