Since the end of Halloween, Christmas decorations, trees, stockings, candy, makeup, and even wine have popped up in stores. The Christmas season seems to be quickly spreading all around us — and while the holidays may be here, what many tend to forget is that the holiday season goes well beyond Christmas. Multiple holidays are celebrated throughout December as well as throughout the year, including Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve, Diwali, and Ramadan (just to name a few). While there are endless Christmas films and TV specials (Hallmark has practically created a factory for them), there aren’t nearly as many about these other holidays — so, we’ve gathered up the movies and TV episodes that do take on some of these other holidays.
Whether you want to see a different holiday you celebrate depicted or educate your children about these various holidays, these films and TV specials focus on holidays — and topics — that go beyond your traditional ho-ho-ho’s.
