All religious and spiritual traditions have cycles of holy days and seasons. As we recognize the mosaic of spiritual and religious traditions in our local settings and our world, it is important to learn more about how each of the wisdom traditions celebrates holy days, sets aside seasons for repentance, reflection and renewal, and identifies major events to commemorate in community rituals. We invite you to use the Multifaith Calendar maintained by the Harvard Divinity School. It offers not only the specific dates of festivals and holy days, but also brief information about each event, practice or observance.
