Minnesota’s holiday traditions are as unique and varied as the people who call the state home. Whether you go to the Como Zoo’s holiday flower show or the St. Paul Hmong New Year Celebration, holiday traditions can bring us together with joy and comfort during the darkest days of the year. 

MPR News host Angela Davis talks with a local historian and an author about the many unique winter holiday traditions in Minnesota, where they originated and why they are important. And we hear from our listeners about their holiday traditions.
