Today, completed our Christmas Around the World unit and we flew to Poland and learned about Polish Christmas customs. On their Christmas dinner table, they lay down straw and cover it with a white sheet to symbolize the Christ Child's birth in a manger.  Like Germany, they also share the custom of putting a spider web ornament on the tree for good luck! We made Polish ornament chains and linked them together to decorate our door!

Ximena is hard at work!

  Our chain is complete!

Next week we will learn about Hanukkah and celebrate Christmas American style!
