There are a lot of celebrations worldwide this time of year. South Africa celebrates the Day of Reconciliation (December 16), Buddhists celebrate Bodhi Day (December 8), and Finns and Kenyans celebrate their independence (December 6 & 12 , respectively). Of course, there are those better known celebrations: Hannukah, Kwanzaa, the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Aha, and of course, Christmas and New Year’s.
For our year-end issue we’re focusing on resources. So instead of stories, in most sections, you’ll find a list of useful resources to help you get a good start for next year–and in some cases, help you make it through the holidays no matter what you celebrate.
