Holidays and Traditions
Unitarian Universalists honor and celebrate a wide range of holidays and occasions over the course of a year. Unlike other faith traditions that use a single lectionary (a collection of scripture readings appointed for a given day or occasion), the topics and themes for our worship services are usually chosen independently by our worship leaders.
These include unique UU traditions, like the Flower Ceremony, as well as holidays from other faith traditions. In December, around the time of Winter Solstice and Christmas, we celebrate with our Festival of Lights, incorporating elements of traditions from many faiths around the world.
