Equity Focus for December: Celebrations & Traditions

Why Doesn't Everyone Celebrate Christmas?

Not everyone celebrates Christmas because there are thousands of different holidays and religions around the world. Christmas is a holiday that was traditionally celebrated by Christian people. Christianity is a religion with one God and revolves around the teachings in the Bible. Many people who aren't Christian, don't celebrate Christmas. They may celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid or any number of other celebrations. Not all holidays happen in December either; they can occur at any time during the year. It's important to remember that all holidays are important to the people celebrating them.
