Winter Holidays & Festivals

IT Colleagues,

It is common among many cultures to celebrate the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, with holidays, festivals, and religious observances in the surrounding days. Historically, these celebrations often involved feasts of the last of perishable supplies before the harsh months of winter, but there are many different reasons to celebrate. Holidays celebrated around the world at this time include Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Eve. 

Hanukkah: Thursday, December 7, 2023 – Friday, December 15, 2023
Christmas: Monday, December 25, 2023
Kwanzaa: Tuesday, December 26, 2023 – Monday, January 1, 2024

We hope that all of you have a safe and happy winter break spent with those close to you.  

Best Regards,
