 (Manna 56: Holidays)
TOC | Previous | Next


Every country and culture has its own traditions and celebrations. Whether passed down for hundreds and even thousands of years or celebrated only over the past century, holidays are here to stay.

While some observances are patriotic or commemorative, there are others that have complicated secular, sacred, and pagan origins. These holidays present a difficult situation: Is it wrong to celebrate these days? Why should we refrain from participating when they are part of the culture?

As the theme articles remind us, we are the chosen people of God and must shine His light in this world. We can do this well only if we are sure of what we believe and ready to follow God’s commands. We should not blindly follow the traditions of men but should understand what they are celebrating. If we sincerely do our best to obey our heavenly Father, we will not be led astray.
