Call for Guest Bloggers, Holiday Edition


As stressful as the holidays can be (especially after this election), they also give us the opportunity to reflect on our family traditions, which often represent important pieces of our cultural and ancestral roots.

We want to hear from you! How do you mix it up during the holidays? What traditions are important to you? What are some new traditions you’ve created? And what are some traditions that you’d like to share with our community—do you have any recipes, games, arts/crafts, or party theme suggestions that bring together different parts of your heritage?

Submit your ideas, stories, art, photos or videos by emailing us at

If you need inspiration, check out this post from Christmas past by Zena Itani, “Christmas without Ramadan” from 2015.

Seeking Holiday Guest Bloggers

How do you mix your holiday traditions?

We’re looking for guest bloggers for the last couple months of 2014 who will share their holiday traditions. Holiday traditions often represent our cultural and familial roots that have been passed down through the years.

We want to hear from you! How have you and your family mixed those traditions to celebrate the holidays?

Email us at if you’re interested in sharing your mixed holiday story!
