Hanukkah and Kwanzaa

This week, we are learning about Celebrations Around The World.  So far, we have learned about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.  On Monday, we learned that Hanukkah is also called the Festival of Lights and it lasts for eight days. We made a menorah and wrote in our celebrations booklet.

On Tuesday, we learned about Kwanzaa.  Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and lasts until January 1.  The wooden candle holder is called a kinara.  We painted a kinara and added the red, black and green candles that represent the seven principles of Kwanzaa.
