The embeddable infographic provides a quick snapshot on the holidays as observed by 24 world religions including Hindus; Sikhs; Shintoists, Bahá’Ís; Wiccans; Buddhists; Jews; Atheists, Agnostics and religiously unaffiliated; Christians, including Catholics, Mormons, Protestant and Eastern and Western Orthodox; Jains; Scientologists; and Taoists.

Various religious festivities and special days are featured in a timeline from November to January, including but not limited to the Diwali Festival of Lights, Winter Solstice, Bodhi Day and Hanukkah.

Readers will appreciate an in-depth detailing of the different ways that Christian groups celebrate Christmas, including Catholics, Mormons, Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Christians, and major Protestant denominations.

In between information tidbits are “Did You Know” images, which provides insights to holiday trivia, answering questions such as, how did the Christmas tree tradition start? Who was the real Santa Claus? Who invented Christmas lights? Which U.S. state was first to recognize December 25th as a holiday?

The WorldReligionNews.com holiday infographic features a rich set of information that has been selectively condensed from authoritative references.
