The Holiday Season is upon is in many countries. In the U.S. the celebration of Thanksgiving will arrive a week from this Thursday, honoring the bounty of the harvest for sustenances during the dark days of winter. We typically gather with family and friends and being thankful for the food we have to eat, the sweetness of loving companionship, and the wellness we have-at any level to persevere.
We honor the Holiday Season with festivities like Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, light festivals in Asia and the Al Dhafra Festival in Abu Dhabi observing the heritage of the Bedouin lifestyle. With so many amazing cultures around the world, it’s a beautiful thing to have so many amazing celebrations to honor those cultures.
When we Shift our lives towards a place of respect for ourselves and others, we honor our cultures, our histories and our celebrations. Let us honor the uniqueness we all share with the variety of festivals for our Autumn and Winter Holiday Season.
