Happy Holidays

December 2017

Around this time of year, there are so many different traditions and cultural celebrations around the world.

If you're Jewish, you celebrate Hannukah; cook latkes (delicious potato pancakes), spin a top called a dreidel, and over 8 days and nights light a special candle holder called a menorah.
If you live in Mexico, you might celebrate the Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe by gathering at Mexico City's Basilica on December 12th, dancing, and singing 'Las Mañanitas'.
If you're a girl living in Sweden, you might celebrate St. Lucia Day by dressing in a long white gown with a red sash, waking up your family with singing, coffee, and special treats called "Lucia cats" (twisted saffron buns).

In the United States, you might celebrate Kwanzaa where you would decorate your home with fruits and vegetables to celebrate the harvest, dress in special clothes, and light the candles on a kinara.
If you're Christian you celebrate Christmas. On December 25th you spend time with family, go to church, exchange gifts, sing carols and decorate a tree.

With holidays to look forward to and the coming of a new year just around the corner, December is a month of exciting festivities no matter what your holiday traditions are!
