Christmastime Chronicles: A Preschooler’s Guide to Global Merrymaking
The magic of Christmas envelops the world in its warmth, but did you know that each country adds its own sprinkle of fairy dust? Let’s unwrap some of these traditions with our little ones:
1. Germany’s Advent Calendars:
Originating in Germany, Advent calendars are now global. With tiny doors revealing treats for each December day, it’s a delightful countdown to Christmas.
2. South Africa’s Caterpillar Delicacy:
Share the story of how, in parts of South Africa, a Christmas delicacy is the deep-fried caterpillars of the Emperor Moth.
3. Japan’s KFC Dinner:
An interesting marketing campaign led to the Japanese adopting a unique tradition: feasting on KFC for Christmas dinner!
4. Finland’s Peaceful Declaration:
On Christmas Eve in Finland, a ‘Declaration of Christmas Peace’ is read in various cities, heralding the beginning of the festive season and emphasizing the importance of peace.
5. Portugal’s Consoda Feast:
Portuguese families have the tradition of setting extra places at the dinner table for deceased relatives, ensuring their memory remains part of the celebration.
Each tradition, in its own unique way, paints a vibrant stroke on the canvas of Christmas celebrations. At Kids ‘R’ Kids, our palette is filled with diverse hues, ensuring our little artists grow up with a colorful understanding of global festivities.
