From the dawn of human history, people have celebrated and honored life's transitions through four major events: birth, puberty, loving relationships and death. Yet without Earth, the sun’s rising, moon’s pull on our ocean tides, and stars’ position, life as we know it would not exist so there would be nothing to celebrate.

The world "holiday" comes from the Old English word hāligdæg, (from hālig--holy + dæg day, thus, "holy day"). Back then, hāligdægs were generally very serious religious occasions. But as we evolved, people began associating the hāligdægs with relaxation, and more time spent with families and away from work. Soon, they introduced more rituals that eventually became part of various cultural traditions and today holidays as we know them are joyous celebrations.

The intention of "Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta HOLIDAYS: Stories and Songs that Celebrate Global Light" is to create unity through stories and songs that rise beyond cultural, ethnic, political and religious divides. It was written and recorded in love for all humankind in hopes that we might celebrate some of the major global holidays together on this astounding planet under the same sun, moon and stars.
