Teaching Children about Holidays

The holiday season is upon us...Whether you celebrate or not it's impossible to avoid songs, decorations, and "season's greeting" that appear around this time of year.  Learning the stories and customs behind various holidays is an excellent activity for you and your children.  For holidays you do celebrate, this will strengthen your children's connection to their cultural or religious heritage.  For those you don't celebrate, it will help both you and your children to gain a better appreciation for the world we live in.

In addition to learning about diverse holidays, it's important for families to create their own rituals (whether they are religious in nature or not). If you would like to learn more about holidays and rituals we recommend checking out books in our diverse Holiday collection. Each book there has a sticker to correspond with the holiday.
Happy holidays to all of you!
