Welcome to The Holy Days! Thanks for visiting this space — a place where we share ideas for observing the holidays and seasons we find meaningful in our walk with Christ.
We find these traditions important for the grounding, centering experience of observing rhythms and rituals, but also for the significance they have in passing on the reality of our cultural and spiritual heritage to our children. Tradition brings the family together around the table; this is the bedrock of a healthy society. As you break bread with your family and community, you are bringing Christ to the world.
We hope you take inspiration and encouragement from these pages as you guide your own family’s rhythm through the year.
