Holidays and Traditions
The holiday celebrations in Unitarian Universalist congregations reflect the six sources of our faith.
Many Unitarian Universalists and our congregations celebrate Christian holidays like Christmas, Jewish holidays like Passover, and Pagan Winter Solstice, among others. Our holiday services use the stories and traditions creatively, calling us to our deeper humanity and our commitment to the good.
We celebrate Christmas Eve with a service of Lessons and Carols at 7 pm each year.
We honor Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur with a liturgical celebration of the season, as we do Passover.
Our celebration of the Blessing of the Animals is a regular feature of the second Sunday service each year in the month of October.
In addition to religious holidays, we also honor secular holidays including Earth Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and others.
