Few months present the multicultural “teachable moments” that December does! The following multicultural events and celebrations are among those that will happen this year:

  • UAE National Day
  • Saint Nicholas Day (Christian)
  • Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Mexican)
  • St. Lucia Day (Swedish)
  • Chanukah (Jewish)
  • Christmas Day (Christian)
  • Three Kings Day/Epiphany (Christian)
  • Boxing Day (Australian, Canadian, English, Irish)
  • Kwanzaa (African American)
  • Omisoka (Japanese)
  • Yule (Pagan)
  • Saturnalia (Pagan)

There are many ways to celebrate with friends, family, alone, in a place, or at home. To those who choose to make this a month of celebrations and reflections, I say “Cheers!”

I honor, respect and welcome any and all ideas for celebrations. May this December be a peaceful, bountiful, joyous and healthy one for us all.

Aloha,

Denise
