Journey with us this Christmas season as we take a look at the history and origin of the Christmas Carols we all know and love. We’ll be looking at some traditional favorites including Jingle Bells and Silent Night – you just might be surprised by what you learn!
Join us as we take a look at how the world celebrates the holiday season. We will begin by taking a look at Christmas traditions around the world – Does everyone eat turkey? What’s the deal with Christmas crackers? KFC for Christmas dinner – really? Then, we’ll move onto New Year and discover how different countries around the world welcome in the New Year. Are there any strange traditions centered around the beginning of a New Year? What are black-eyed peas and what does it mean to go first-footing? We will end our course with a look at Twelfth Night and what it means and then look at the Chinese New year which doesn’t even begin on January 1st – How is that possible?
