Newsletter November – December 2017: Winter Holiday Traditions
Winter holiday time is when many Americans end the year gathering with relatives, enjoying great food and giving gifts. It’s also a great time to teach kids about the importance of having an open mind about different cultures and traditions – lessons that go hand-in-hand with teaching children the importance of gratefulness.
