At this time of year many of us in the USA, as well as in countries all over the globe, are planning for the celebration of Christmas. Even within our own country the traditions can vary greatly. Here is a chance to explore what our friends in other parts of the world may be doing as Christmas approaches. It is wonderful that so many countries have visited our class blog. Perhaps some visitor to our blog would tell us more about their celebrations or correct misinformation that might be found on the websites I have included on the Global Christmas glog here. In addition, we can learn about the history of Christmas celebrations in our own culture.
In some countries of the world the percentage of people who celebrate Christmas is quite small or even non-existent. Each culture has its own traditions, beliefs, holidays, and holy days. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all learned more about each other and grew to understand, appreciate, and respect the many beautiful and rich cultural traditions that make up our global family?
