Community Holidays

If you think of the special times when you were a kid, what events come to mind? You probably remember holiday gatherings, especially ones that involved some sort of ritual or ceremony. For example, I vividly remember celebrating Passover at the home of my grandparents: each year we’d see the same people, hear the same stories, recite the same prayers, and eat the same symbolic foods. These yearly gatherings helped me get to know my extended family and indelibly shaped my sense of cultural identity.

Seasonal activities like religious holidays, harvest festivals, and even sporting events are deeply ingrained into human culture; they bring people together and remind them about what’s important and valued within their community. As a community builder, you can deepen your members’sense of belonging and develop your culture by celebrating yearly events that are meaningful within the community context.
