Unitarian Universalists honor and celebrate a wide range of holidays and occasions over the course of a year.

Unlike other faith traditions that use a single lectionary (a collection of scripture readings appointed for a given day or occasion), the topics and themes for Unitarian Universalist worship services are usually chosen independently by worship leaders in congregations.

These include unique UU traditions, like the Flower CommunionWater Communion, Bridging, and Coming of Age ceremonies, as well as secular holidays and holidays from other faith traditions, such as HanukkahChristmas, New Year’s, Martin Luther King’s Birthday, Earth Day, Passover, Easter, Beltane, Mothers’ Day, Labor Day, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Samhain, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, Transgender Remembrance Day, the winter and summer solstices, and the spring and autumn equinox.
