There are all kinds of cultural celebrations. In the past, my family often celebrated New Year’s Eve with buñuelos and canela as we watched the shows on television. As our lives have changed, my husband and I celebrate by drinking carbonated grape juice and looking forward to a long life together.

I enjoy learning about how other cultures celebrate their holidays and have had the privilege of reviewing a perfect one for the Chinese New Year in Eugenia Chu’s Celebrating Chinese New Year which combines history, culture, games, recipes and wonderful illustrations. It makes me wish I were still teaching so I could use this book in the classroom!

Take the time to check it out on Amazon.
