Christmas Around the World!

Many families set aside their traditional homeschool in December to holiday-school...incorporating history, math, reading, science, and more into their holiday homeschool.  Today, we're bringing culture and geography together in Christmas Around the World!

Christmas is one of the biggest celebrations for the people belonging to the Christian faith, but it's not just celebrated among Christians.  The world is a global village, and this holiday is now celebrated all over.  The holiday is typically celebrated with high spirits and much fanfare, and while the dates may vary slightly, the traditions are even more interesting!  Some celebrate for a week, while others go on for more than a month.

Have you ever wondered where your favorite traditions came from?  Learn about Christmas Traditions from Around the World, and find a fun new one to add to your holiday season!

Eighteen countries (not including the United States) are addressed in the e-book.  It also includes a recommended reading and activities list, cultural movies, and Christmas music from around the world.
