    过 has many meanings, one meaning is to celebrate the other meaning " was, went, pass through, to happen), 过 is also used to indicate if you have done something before in the past.
    In the first sentence 他最喜欢过年过节, 过 means to celebrate, so " he likes to celebrate chinese new year and festivals the most!
    因为今天过得真倒霉 in this sentence 过得 means " was or went" so because today WAS A really bad luck day.
