Holidays and Traditions
As Unitarian Universalists, we at All Souls honor and celebrate a wide range of holidays and occasions over the course of a year.
Unlike other faith traditions that regularly use a collection of scripture readings appointed for a given day or occasion, the topics and themes for Unitarian Universalist holiday worship services are usually chosen independently by worship leaders in congregations.
These include unique UU traditions, like the Flower Ceremony, as well as holidays from other faith traditions, such as Christmas, Kwanzaa, Channukah, Yom Kippur, or Beltane.
For a broad spectrum view of the variety of alternative, faith-based holiday traditions often celebrated by UUs take a look at/download the 2017-18 UUA Worship Calendar. The calendar also includes monthly worship themes used in popular theme-based ministry programs.
