Last week I helped out in my third graders classroom for a “Celebration of Celebrations.” The class had spent a couple weeks researching and learning about many of the winter holidays across a number of different cultures and religions and it culminated into a morning full of crafts and activities. They studied Hanukkah, Christmas, Dawali, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year and Winter Solstice. A few of these celebrations, I didn’t know much about, but after a little research and listening to some of the kids, I learned that the focus of all them was based on celebrating light with family and friends.
So no matter your faith, culture, family or traditions, Sarah and I hope that you spend time this week celebrating and rejoicing with whatever brings you light. Enjoy!
