Winter Holidays Around the World
Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry offers students links to explore Christmas traditions around the world at http://www.msichicago.org/scrapbook/scrapbook_exhibits/catw2004/holiday_traditions.html. An enormous list of links can transport anyone to countries from the U.S. to Lebanon (yes, they celebrate Christmas!), Belize to Latvia, and many nations in between. But wait! Christmas is not the only winter holiday celebrated around the world! Links are included for Chinese New Year, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Ramadan. Don't miss this opportunity to learn the traditional holiday greetings, decorations and so much more from around the world!
