The annual Holiday of Holidays in Haifa is a very special festival of holidays, designed to cater for everybody!
This year (2016) it celebrates its 23rd year, and takes place over December 8-17 (although we see there are a number of events after this date, though probably no Santa in sight, see the link below).
For those of you looking for something a little different during this extremely festive month, this could be it! This exclusive holiday combines the celebration of three religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. “Holiday of Holidays” activities are held during the weekends, and they symbolize the values of coexistence, living together in peace and harmony, and mutual respect of all six religions in the city, joining the residents’ lives and fate together. Gotta love the concept!
The festival takes place in the Arab Wadi Nisnas neighborhood and extends to the German Colony at the foot of the Baha’i’ Gardens.
During the “Holiday of Holidays” you can find a variety of great activities, including an antique fair, an arts and crafts fair, special authentic foods prepared by residents of Wadi Nisna, music by artists of all ethnicities, a circus and many more events for the whole family.
