The theme for the day is Holiday Traditions. Most of us celebrate holiday traditions passed down from our parents. The traditions nurture us and become an essential aspect of how we celebrate. As part of this year's Holiday Open House, we present to you a few of the holiday traditions which the Nationality Room Committees have shared. Have you heard of the Welsh Calennig, or the German St. Nikolaus and Krampus? If not, then you should definitely check it out at the Pitt Global Hub.
