Multicultural Holiday Show

Lets celebrate our Diverse December Holidays!

Here in America, each year our varied population celebrates the following holidays:

  • Christmas
  • Hanukkah
  • Kwanzaa
  • Ramadan
  • Diwali

In this program, we tell a story about a boy who has to learn the deeper meaning of the Holidays.  Using 7 volunteers from the audience, he travels to 5 different countries.  He sees how the Holidays are all similar in their use of music, food, lights, gift-giving, & family reunions.  Our emphasis is to make sure that the children gain a clear understanding of WHY, HOW, WHERE, AND BY WHOM each Holiday is celebrated.

We use video clips to represent all of these Holidays being celebrated.
