Celebrating IllUUmination

IllUUmination is a Unitarian Universalist (UU) holiday instituted by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Little Rock. Celebrated during the winter season, this observance places a distinctively UU festival on the calendar during a time of the year when many great religious traditions mark the change of seasons.

Since 1994 the UU Church of Little Rock has celebrated IllUUmination, a holiday conceived within one of their member families in response to their children's desire to celebrate not only the special days of other faiths, but a special day of their own. The church has developed a weekend of programming including an IllUUmination Feast, songs, and a Sunday service for all ages.

The celebration has received an enthusiastic response, and is now celebrated in a number of UU congregations.
