"Festival of Light" Holiday Posters


The "Festival of Light" holiday poster series is a longstanding and beloved tradition on our campus. These colorful and educational posters have been distributed annually to residence halls, administrative offices, local public schools and community organizations. They add an air of festivity to a dark and stressful time of year, while informing the University community about some of the diverse religious and cultural celebrations which take place during the Autumn and Winter months: Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Three Kings Day, Eid-al-Adha (new for 2012), and Diwali and Chinese Lantern Festival (added in 2011).

To request a set of posters for a UMass department, please contact Larry Goldbaum in the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, goldbaum@umass.edu or 413.545.9642.
