The holidays at Holiday
Santa, menorahs, and three traveling kings; these are a few of our favorite things!
For many, the holidays are a time to reflect on traditions that have been handed down through generations. At Holiday, those family traditions come alive as they’re shared with friends, old and new. Every Holiday community is abuzz this time of year with fun seasonal activities, many of which are based on their residents’ beloved family customs.

At its peak, my collection boasted 242 sets!
