Enrich your seasonal celebrations with Festivals Together. It includes stories, songs, crafts, activities, and recipes from the global village. Celebrate Eid, Holi, Easter, Wesak, Advent, Divali, Chinese New Year, and many more. This well-loved resource draws on the experience of a wide variety of faiths and cultures—Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslum, and Sikh.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the tales of Anancy, the spider trickster of Ganesh, and how he got his elephant head and why the Sun and the Moon live in the sky. You will learn how to make simple percussion instruments, kites that really fly, a Filipino Christmas star, Chinese lanterns, spring flower festival decorations, and Christingle oranges.

Whether you are a teacher, parent, or community group leader, Festivals Together offers a wealth of ideas for multicultural celebrations that will inform, inspire, and delight everyone.
