Project:#09 Holiday Scavenger Hunt

You are going research the December Holidays and write an essay called holiday.html. It will contain the answers to the following Scavenger Hunt and other goodies you deem appropriate. You are to examine each of the different celebrations people around the world celebrate in December.

Consider:

  • How people celebrate.
  • Foods eaten
  • unique traditions
  • gifts exchanged
  • dates of holiday
  • song or story of holiday from each culture

    Your holiday.html document should contain links to each holiday and you should be sure to make comments about your discoveries. This assignment is designed to make you aware of other cultural celebrations so concentrate on those other than your own. Your written work should reflect your understanding of each holiday celebration, so that you could explain each to someone who does not know.
