Festivals appear in every countries around the world, people can relax and enjoy the electric vibe while joining in some activities on these days. Some individuals generally believe that the meaning of those festivals are ignored because people tend to focus more on recreation. However, it should be agreed that the culture and tradition of festivals still be remembered by many people.

First of all, it is true that during the festivals, many people might prefer to play games or participate in some activities. Therefore, entertaining activity is an integral part of a carnival. For instance, on Christmas Day, children could receive many gifts from their parents and other relatives. Another good example is on Halloween, people are likely to wear costumes and disguise themselves as characters who they like. In fact, celebrations are much more enjoyable due to the appearances of those activities.

Feedback

I think you need to be careful of making over generalized statements, like "Festivals are celebrated all around the world."

Your points are valid but kind of give a weak argument.

I would have wrote about how commercialized Christmas is in many countries and the need to spend large amounts of money on gifts overshadows the importance of spending time with close friends and family.

The same with Valentine's Day. Businesses push that you need to buy loved ones flowers and gifts, rather than just showing love and gratitude to our partners.

It would have been good to know more about the Hung King Temple Festival. Do people know the history and significance of the festival? Do they do activities related to the traditions or do they just treat it as a holiday to hang out with friends at the beach.

I hope this helps!
