Our holiday month of December includes lots of ways to celebrate and to reflect on the ways we participate in the winter season.
Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, in the Jewish tradition, takes place from nightfall on Thursday, Dec. 7 to nightfall on Friday, Dec. 15.
The winter solstice, which means “the sun stands still,” occurs on Thursday, 21 December at 10:27 pm, marking the beginning of winter. This long night offers time for reflection.
Advent occurs four weeks before Christmas Day, in the Christian tradition, to prepare for December 25, a day to celebrate the birth of Christ.
Kwanzaa is based on a first fruits tradition from Africa, a harvest festival, and occurs on Tue, Dec 26, 2023 – Mon, Jan 1, 2024
We at the HuPerson Project offer you our brightest and best wishes for this holiday season. It’s a time of comradery and community, a time for inner reflection as we turn towards winter, and a time of celebration of the light within and without.

What Is Conscious Business & How Can We Cultivate It?

Somehow, we have collapsed the distinction between conscience and conscious, eclipsing an important difference. Investigating how these terms are different is crucial in developing a leader whose awareness becomes more inclusive, more flexible, and more […]
