Religious Celebrations

There are many religions and ways for people to practise and celebrate their faith. One way is through religious festivals. Most religions mark certain days in the year where people come together and concentrate on a particular aspect of their faith through certain rituals. If you look at this Interfaith Calendar you can see how many religious festivals there are.

In spring, Christians celebrate Easter, the Jewish people celebrate Passover, Hindus celebrate Holi and Sikhs celebrate Hola Mohalla – and that’s by no means a complete list. These religious celebrations all have completely different origins, rituals and meanings. Watch these videos to find out more:
