This community's purpose will be for people across the world to post information, discussions, crafts, rants, links, stories, book recommendations, and histories all relevant to the current and/or upcoming holiday. Not just Christmas, not just Halloween, but also a variety of other holidays from various nations and belief systems, some of which may still be celebrated, and some of which may be long left behind in history. When this community was created, there weren't any other Livejournal communities like this. This isn't a community for birthday announcements, although discussions about various kinds of birthday celebrations in general are on-topic.
This community's user icon is from something akin to a calendar, an illuminated fifteenth-century Book of Hours (January in Les Tres Riches Heurs du Duc de Berry).
