March 2007 Festivals

If we are committed to a peaceful world, we have to take time to learn about each other, here is an opportunity for you to call on the people you know and wish them the very best for the holidays. With a few exceptions, including the Jewish and Muslim new year, you can pretty much wish the holidays to any one. Always learn about it. If your event is missing here, it is simply because we are not aware of it, please share with us, we will be happy to include your logo as well as the information about your festival.
