Christmas is a time of year that brings people together. The happiness, generosity and spirit of good will at Christmas provide a great opportunity to share with kids how people of different traditions and cultures connect and show they care. Sharing time, space, food, traditions and memories nurture our connections. Christmas is a natural time to focus on what we share while also celebrating the wonderful ways we are different. It is odd, but true, that acknowledging differences can actually showcase our commonalities! The stories listed here are some favorites that show the countless ways people down the street, across town or across the globe celebrate Christmas. Share them with your child to nurture the spirit of peace on earth.
