Synopsis

Synopsis

December 25th is a day of peace and festivity, the culmination of a season of worldwide goodwill. Carol singers give voice to the joyful spirit, trees are decorated, and gifts exchanged between families and friends. A name-check of the gift-bearers awaited by children reflects the global nature of the celebration: Pere Noel in France, Santa Claus in America, La Befana in Italy, and the Three Kings of Hispanic cultures. With first-person narrative, informative back matter, and evocative photography, Celebrate Christmas is a rich historical and cultural resource for children.

National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.
