The Wonder Of The Holidays

At our little yellow school, the holidays are always an exciting time.  Our holiday fun began with the decoration of the Christmas trees.

Checking Out Some of the Ornaments

Let the decorating begin!

The half days did a wonderful job decorating their tree.

To celebrate Hanukkah, E. brought in some delicious jelly donuts (sufganiyot).  They were absolutely heavenly!  She also brought in some Hanukkah treats for her classmates.

Mrs. M. told us a little about Hanukkah.  E. helped her.  E. and L. brought in their menorahs to show everyone.

We also learned the reason why Christians around the world celebrate Christmas.  We read a very simple story and set out a nativity that L.'s family gave the school years ago.  It is beautiful.

We made some lovely crafts.

We even made a special present for our parents.  It's a secret. We can't tell.

Now the only thing left to do is party!
