NiE Time to celebrate

At this time of year throughout the world, celebrations are held commemorating something special signifying the importance of a situation according to religious, spiritual or traditional beliefs and customs. Celebrations have always had a place of special importance in society marking significant moments that help define a culture giving groups of people or individuals a sense of who they are.

Some celebrations are seen as the core of cultural life and may have a physical display or theatrical component including a song, dance or procession.

Celebrations may include observances based on religion or political organization to recognise the significance of an occasion.
