Global holiday traditions featured Saturday

Many countries represented at Langley Children’s Holiday Festival

Enrich your family’s winter holidays with new multi-cultural appreciation and practices. Learn about other lands and cultures from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the South Whidbey Community Center.

The Children’s Multicultural Holiday Festival is co-sponsored by the Northwest Language and Cultural Center and the Children’s Center After School program.

Tickets are $5 per child – but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The unique learning opportunity for the whole family includes eight different cultural holiday traditions with crafts, stories, songs, gamesand food.

Stations representing Bulgaria, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Russia and Spain will be led by native-speaking presenters. Children will learn hands-on about a baniza and survatchka from Eastern Europe, bûche de noel from France, Mexican dances and songs, Spanish holiday games, and more.

A German puppet show will tell the adventures of Kleiner Stern, Little Star, who fell from heaven as she tried to learn about Weihnachten and how she managed to get back home.
