A criticism with christmas is that it's pretty commercial and malls are pretty commercial.
The logo for the passing is pink and pink is sometimes assossiated with love and valentine's day is associated with love,that,and commercialization but also love,also ellis has a crush on zoey as seen in the campaign. and the song "save me some sugar" correct me if i'm wrong is played in a jukebox,and the song sounds like something you'd hear on valentine's day,that and a rant on why valentine's day is a terrible holiday.
in dark carnival,in the finale specifically,you can light fireworks and burn zombies,and fireworks are associated with the 4th of july/independence day.
a few horror films are set in the swamp,both good and ♥♥♥♥ty,and the finale takes place in a haunted house,ok technically it's a plantation,but tell me it doesnt look like a haunted house when you go to the finale of the campaign.
in hard rain,there is a resturant(one of coach's favorites) called "burger tank" and resturants serve food and food is associated with thanksgiving.
and in the parish,there is an EASTER egg where you can play still alive in a jukebox,granted it alerts the horde,but it's pretty cool to hear.
so that's how their loosly associated with holidays.

Yeah loosly, almost over the threshold of being sloppy. What led you to believe that the plantation house is haunted? It just doesn't put that vibe out at all. There are kitchens/restaurants you pass by or through on nearly every campaign. There are also much better Easter eggs than "Still Alive" in Parish, but by the same token, you could mix and match the holidays/campaigns in every possible combination by loosly associating them.

That is really sloppy... so every restaurant is obviously related to thanksgiving?

Looks like somebody slept through history class...

In Hard Rain, there is an abundance of witches...just like in Salem, Massachusettes. Every November, the early colonists would come together to cleanse the area of witches. A feast of turkey burgers awaited those who returned. This is the true origin of Thanksgiving.

You'd make a great conspiracy theorist.

"Christmas is commercial" - There's a holiday that isn't? Sure, Christmas is arguably the most commercial of them all, but all of them are, in one way or another. Not to mention, Christmas is also associated with SNOW, there aren't any snow/winter maps/campaigns in L4D2.

I'll somewhat give you the second one, it's the only one that was vaguely close to being accurate.

"fireworks are associated with the 4th of July/independence day" - Yes, because New Years definitely doesn't exist, and it's definitely not something that would be more easily recognized by anyone in the world who plays this.

They're in Louisana, if I remember right, and there's a lot of swamps in Louisiana. Swamps are sort of expected. As far as the plantation, I've never seen it as being a "haunted house" at all. You're really grabbing at straws on this one. Not to mention, this is a game with zombies roaming everywhere, I'm pretty sure even if there weren't swamps in Louisana, they'd put in a swamp map as a sort of apocalyptic fanservice to the die-hard zombie fanatics.

... So simply because there's a place that serves food, it automatically has to be Thanksgiving? I also find myself running with an M16 to gun down zombies while I grab gas and try to run back with it, killing every enemy that gets in my way, so does this reference the Iraq war too? I'm pretty sure there's some bushes, so this could reference ol' George Bush.

... You're seriously taking the term "Easter egg" to relate something to Easter, because you have nothing else to grasp at to make it sound legitimate? If that's the case, pretty much every game out there that ever had an Easter egg, is associated with Easter.
