Happy Hannukah! Chanukah or Hannukah, the Festival of Lights, is a celebration of the victory of the Maccabees and the rededication of the Jerusalem Temple. It also commemorates the miracle of the oil that burned for 8 days.
Merry Christmas! There are only a few days left before Christmas we embedded a countdown to Christmas for you and decided to put it here too.
Kwanzaa is a week-long celebration held in the United States honoring African heritage and culture, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder). It is observed from December 26 to January 1 each year. Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and culminating in a feast and gift giving. It was created by Ron Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966, to January 1, 1967.
We also included holiday events from around the world. We invite you to keep checking in with this project that we update each year with new resources and fun things to do with your children.
