As campus winds down in anticipation of Winter Break, and many people are thinking about the traditional “holiday season,” Daybreak is spotlighting some of the holidays that Princetonians celebrated throughout the fall semester: Diwali, Día de los Muertos, and Hanukkah.
By releasing these episodes now, we hope to draw attention to holidays celebrated by minority communities on and near campus. This is an ongoing project — we will also be highlighting holidays celebrated during the Spring semester next year, in 2023.
The first episode of the fall series, Diwali at Princeton, is out now, and you can listen to it below.
