Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Festivals Around The World

23 Dec

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog. Today is Writer’s Quote Wednesday and the day before Christmas Eve. The month of December is a very festive month for many families in the United States of America. The month is especially joyful for my family because  aside from the major holidays there are also six birthdays, including my mother’s on Christmas Eve! The month of December can get a little crazy but it’s also a month of blessings and good cheer. ❤

As excited as my family and I are about Christmas I’m sure there are other families around the world and here in the USA that are as excited about other holidays. This got me thinking about the different festivals celebrated that carry as much significance to others as Christmas and New Years does to so many of us.

Whenever we learn something new about other people, cultures, religions we become closer as a race––the human race. So I’ve listed several festivals celebrated around the world and in the USA. Click on a few and see what they’re all about.

 

Chinese New Year

Çocuk Bayrami

Raksha Bandhan

Purim

Chanukkah

Seijin No Hi

Shichi Go San

Up Helly Aa Fire Festival

Dia De Los Muertos

Diwali
