STRASBOURG, FRANCE, January 17, 2014 (Alsace): For the second consecutive year, the city of Strasbourg has published a calendar that identifies and explains festivals of seven major religions.

The photos were taken by photographer Franois Nussbaumer. Each month is symbolized by a picture of religious holiday.
