Today the children are bringing home their "suitcases" and holiday journals. The journals have the written information about the holidays and countries we traveled to. The suitcases are holding all of their souvenirs that the children made to bring back from the countries. Enjoy looking through them together. They helped us learn that most of the traditions we have in America when celebrating Christmas and other winter holidays are traditions that came from other countries. It was such fun traveling and learning where each of these traditions came from.
