Holidays

 

Holidays at The Children’s Workshop are welcomed as an excellent opportunity to bring history into the cultural discussion. We see holidays as a unique and exciting opportunity to introduce the children to pivotal moments from our collective past.

 

Thanksgiving brings us the story of the European exploration of, and settlement into, the New World. It also brings us the story of America’s indigenous people.

 

Hanukkah brings us the story of the Jewish people holding their own against religious oppression.

 

Christmas brings us the story of the beginnings of one of the world’s major religions.

 

Kwanzaa brings us the ideas of unity and cooperation with each other and the Chinese New Year brings us renewal and joyful beginnings.
