'Tis the season to celebrate. And here are two ways to learn how
people from other countries celebrate.
As you begin your family's holiday traditions, head to Kidsworks
Touring Theatre to take some time to learn about customary
celebrations around the world. Spin the dreidel, act out the first
Christmas tree story, beat the drum in a Kwanzaa ceremony, parade
under the Chinese Dragon and sing Feliz Navidad at the Poplar Creek
Then head to the Museum of Science and Industry to see more than
50 dazzling trees decorated to represent various cultures and their
holiday traditions. With everywhere from Poland to Puerto Rico
represented, you're sure to spy your own ethnic heritage. 2011
marks 60 years of the museum's famous holiday commemoration, so
keep an eye out for extra festive surprises. Happy holidays,
