Pumpkin carving and candy eating have concluded and now that we're well into November, it's time to pull out the decorations to begin our celebration of the holiday season. To kick off this special time of year, TikTok is launching a month-long holiday celebration to highlight and support our diverse community of creators, users, and artists. The brainchild of Bengali creator @nabela, a member of TikTok's Diversity Collective, TikTok's #HolidaysOurWay content programming will honor and celebrate the different voices and backgrounds of the people on our platform and feature cultural traditions, familial food, conversation, and basic human connection. With a calendar full of TikTok LIVE programming and special, curated creator content, we're pulling out all of the stops for an uplifting and inclusive end to 2020.
We are looking forward to seeing our community connect over a meal, join in on classic holiday traditions, and give back to those most in need. Check out #HolidaysOurWay on the Discover page to find festive TikTok content and LIVE streams, including:
- Holidays Our Way: Join creators for a weekly TikTok LIVE stream as they share their favorite holiday festivities. Programming starts tonight with @suhenna_creations and a Diwali-themed LIVE at 5:00 PM PST.
- Dinner with Me: Celebrating Holidays Our Way: Get your cranberries, egg nog or Bengali pitha, because we're launching a holiday version of our community-favorite TikTok LIVE series, "Dinner with Me." @Nabela will kick off the holiday edition of the series tomorrow, November 18 at 5:00 PM PT with a special Bengali holiday 'Preeti-bhoj' or 'love feast.'
In addition to LIVE streams, we'll be launching several holiday-themed creative effects to help bring the excitement of the season to life. Creators are encouraged to use #HolidaysOurWay as they show us their unique family traditions, cultural celebrations, and favorite memories as we celebrate the holidays together on TikTok!
We'll also be introducing new, holiday-themed content for "Amplify Diverse Voices," our video series that helps support and discover diverse creators on TikTok. In the special holiday edition, we'll be highlighting creators in our community and their holiday traditions. Amplify Diverse Voices uplifts and celebrates cultures, helps user discover traditions, and encourages the community to learn from our incredible creators.
From our TikTok family to yours, Happy Holidays!
