We aim to cover several global holidays or traditions per month to showcase what people are celebrating around the world. So how do we decide what to feature? We first try to target two major holidays within every religion per year. We also look at the spectrum of non-religious holidays and traditions around the world. We particularly like to feature traditions and holidays which are fun for kids and we try to avoid the more somber ones. We hope to add new holidays to the mix with each year. Regrettably, we can’t cover all holidays and cultural traditions. If you feel there is something we should be covering and we are not, we welcome your suggestions.

We also recognize that certain holidays are celebrated very differently depending on what country you are from and even regionally within countries. Christmas is different in Ecuador, Germany and the U.S. Ramadan is different in Bangladesh, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. While it would be fun, we are unable to cover precise traditions from every country that celebrates a certain holiday. If your country has not been included, we don’t mean to exclude your traditions. Feel free to leave comments in the recipe and craft sections that relate more specifically to your culture. If you have other suggestions you would like to share, we welcome your feedback at
