Summary/Abstract: The author of this paper presents some results and observations from a large-scale research program, focused at the most popular immigrant community in the Netherlands - that in Lombok, Utrecht. Her observations concern the festivities of the population in this multiethnic neighbourhood, and their role for the development of intercultural communication. The interacting parties are those of Turkish and Morrocan immigrants, as well as local Dutch. The article views the celebration of three popular holidays of a different origin - Saint Nickolas' day, Christmas and the break of Ramadan. Their celebration is viewed on two planes - in the public and the private sphere.
