Seasonal Celebrations Articles

It wouldn't be spring without chocolate eggs, summer without a solstice, autumn without fireworks or winter without a turkey. Indeed, a year wouldn't be a year without the seasonal celebrations that cover our calendars with excuses to put our feet up and take a break. But these dates usually mean more than a day off work: they are opportunities to commemorate and demonstrate, remember and rejoice, to acknowledge achievements and to honour beliefs. Indeed, they are a fundamental part of global culture.

Here at My Destination, we realise the importance of these occasions, and love anything that gives us a reason to celebrate. Whether that means a right royal knees-up in Britain, bringing in the New Year Down Under, giving thanks with a turkey in North America, drenching ourselves in colour for Holi in South Asia, moving to a frenetic drum beat in Africa, or letting our inhibitions go during Mardi Gras in South America, you can read about it in our Seasonal Celebrations articles.
