So this is what I did. I printed out different flags (off Google) and then wrote interesting facts about that country and how they celebrate Christmas on the back. I let a child choose any flag they wanted and then we sang a Primary Christmas song.
|Greece. Christmas trees are not commonly used in Greece. In almost every home the main symbol of the season is a shallow wooden bowl with a piece of wire is suspended across the rim; from that hangs a sprig of basil wrapped around a wooden cross|
|Japan. Their traditional Christmas meal is fried chicken|
|Latvia. Claims the home to the very first Christmas tree in the year 1510|
|Mexico. On Christmas day they are blindfolded and taken to try and break a decorated clay piñata that dangles and swings at the end of a rope.|
|Pakistan. Their merry Christmas getting is Bara Din Mubarrak|
All country Christmas facts were found here
