Collection: Holidays

Every culture around the world has its own unique set of holidays and traditions. Some holidays commemorate significant events in a country’s history, while others are rooted in religion and faith. While holidays differ in many ways from one culture to the next, they all represent a time for people to gather, share stories, eat food, and uphold traditions. Learning about the holidays celebrated around the world builds understanding of the beliefs, rituals, and practices across cultures. This audio collection highlights holidays celebrated in the U.S. and beyond, with stories that can deepen understanding of each holiday's special meaning.
