All the world loves a holiday! At the minimum we get a day off work. At the most, grand celebrations and quality time with family and friends.. On a deeper level, holidays often ask us to look back at a shared history.

Holidays and celebrations give us a time for coming together as a community, remembering loved ones passed or giving thanks to our God.

Food is almost always part of any holiday celebration. Good food at its best is a shared experience, and holiday food traditions are a social glue that binds cultures together.
