Celebrating Traditions
Community Resources and Services - Special Events/Projects

Description

As we head into the holiday season, it is a good time to reflect not only on all the things that we are grateful for, but ways we can make new traditions to express gratitude. The world is a colorful canvas of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. In every corner of our Howard County Community there exist people from different religions, racial identifications, ethnic identities who speak different languages, and celebrate different holidays. Culture shapes our identity, it influences how we behave, and it shapes who we are. Culture brings people together equally in celebration and in grief. Therefore, for the month of December we are focusing on Culture and Diversity.

The pandemic has forced many of us to change the way we celebrate the holidays therefore this is a good time to start making new memories by getting curious about other cultural holidays and celebrations.

Howard County Office on Aging & Independence is asking YOU to help open the door to a more inspiring, respectful, and harmonious community, by celebrating with people of different ethnic backgrounds and learning about their cultural holiday traditions.

To help you get started, sign-up to receive a list of seasonal events and celebrations that is sure to make you have an unforgettable holiday!

You may even discover a new holiday tradition that you and your family will do for years to come!
