P4 are learning about how countries around the world celebrate Christmas. We have learnt that they all have different traditions and cultures!
Today we learnt about how they celebrate Christmas in Germany, as one of our pupils is part German. His mum came in to tell us about the traditions they had when she lived in Germany, and how she has mix of German and British Christmas traditions now they live in Scotland. Some big differences we heard about are that they celebrate Christmas day on 24th December, they have lit candles on their tree, and they have meat fondue as Christmas dinner!
Thanks you Mrs Bennett for coming to talk to us and sharing the amazing traditions from your childhood!
