Summary

New Year’s celebrations are times when families and friends come together to celebrate endings and new beginnings. When a religious element is added to these celebrations, there is also a sense of spiritual duty. Rather than simply “ring in the New Year” with food and festivities, participants in religious New Year’s celebrations consider the meaning of the holiday, the passage of time, and the opportunity for personal change. Focusing on Divali (Hindu), Rosh Hashanah (Jewish), El am Hejir (Muslim), and Matariki (Maori), Religious New Year’s Celebrations explores how cultures around the world contemplate the passage of time during these deeply sacred festivals.
