Whose Holiday Is It Anyway?


Christmas decorations and holiday music bombard us right after Halloween. For Christians, it seems the holiday had become overly commercialized. In our increasingly diverse nation, there are many who observe different holy days.

So, how do non-Christians and Christians honor their religious traditions while still being part of the secular world? How do interfaith couples navigate family conflicts? We talk with Rabbi Richard Hirsh, Imam Quaiser Abdullah, and Reverend Steven Lawrence about the challenges of living a spiritual life and bridging our cultural differences this time of year.
