Hanukkah – celebrated sundown Dec. 1 to sundown Dec. 9, 2010
Hanukkah (also commonly spelled “Chanukah”) is an eight day festival beginning on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, which may occur from late November to late December. Hanukkah means “rededication” in Hebrew. The holiday commemorates an event that occurred 23 centuries ago, marking the survival of Judaism. Hanukkah is one the best known and joyous holidays for the Jewish community.

 

Yule – observed December 21
Yule is the Winter Solstice that is being celebrated, seed-time of the year, the longest night and shortest day. It is the birthday of the new Sun King, the Son of God — by whatever name you choose to call him. On this darkest of nights, the Goddess becomes the Great Mother and once again gives birth. And it makes perfect poetic sense that on the longest night of the winter, ‘the dark night of our souls’, there springs the new spark of hope, the Sacred Fire, the Light of the World.

Christmas – celebrated December 25
Christmas Day is the celebration of the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the central figure of Christianity. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of greeting cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly.

Kwanzaa – celebrated December 26 through January 1
Kwanzaa – Swahili for “first fruits” or “first fruits of the harvest” – is a seven day celebration of
African-American heritage, community, family, and culture based on the rituals of African harvest festivals. Kwanzaa is unique because it is a holiday with no religious, political, or heroic associations.

New Year’s – observed on December 31 and January 1
New Year’s January 1 marks the end of a period of remembrance of a particular passing year.
It is customary to make New Year’s resolutions, which individuals hope to fulfill in the coming year.

May the blessings of this Yuletide Season
Fill Your Home With Abundance
And Your Heart With Gladness
All Year Long!

Blessed Be!

Happy Holidays to All
