There’s a Subscription for That: Jewish, Chinese & Indian Holidays
There’s a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers.
Do you ever feel like you wish your kids were more connected to your family’s cultural traditions? You know where we’re about to go with this, don’t you? Yup, there’s a subscription for that!
Days United is a subscription box aimed at elementary schoolers (they say their boxes target kids ages 5 through 12), and is built around helping families celebrate their rich traditions with activities, projects, and holiday guides that tell the stories of holidays in fun illustrations.

The brand has boxes for Jewish, Chinese, and Indian families, all suited to meet the holidays particular to these individual cultures. Unlike quarterly or even monthly deliveries you expect from most subscription box brands, Days United makes sure to ship in accordance with the cadence of your individual boxes.
Take the Jewish boxes, for example. With Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot both occurring in the month of September, subscribers who were signed up on the eight-box a year plan and had subscribed in time for the Rosh Hashanah deliveries, got two boxes in one month, but they won’t get another until it’s time to get ready for Hanukkah.
As for what’s inside, families could spend an afternoon crafting Simchat Torah flags with their children for Sukkot, building their own Seder plate for Passover, or creating special magic ink messages to reflect on the year that was for Rosh Hashanah. Each box contains five activities plus a holiday guide.
Interested in the box that celebrates Indian customs? With a Days United subscription, you might get a safe Holi Color Play kit to do for Holi, everything you need to make rangoli for Diwali, or a complete kite kit for Lohri.
Chinese boxes from Days United, on the other hand, focus on Chinese New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival in June, plus a Mid-Autumn box.
Thinking it’s time to try Days United? Here’s what you’re going to want to know:
