Celebrations and Traditions

We are learning about belonging.  We brainstormed different groups we can belong to and illustrated some of the groups we each belong to.  We also wrote about special family members and shared some stories about things we like to do with our families. Now we are learning about celebrations and traditions.  Can you help us by answering this question:

What are your celebrations and traditions?

For example, do you celebrate Easter, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Halloween, Hanukkah, Groundhog's Day, Valentine's Day, New Years, Canada Day or other holidays?  How do you celebrate?  Do you have a tradition that happens every year with your family or friends?

Comment below or Tweet us @Mrsobachsclass  Pictures and writing are welcome!  We will create a special Sway presentation to share all of our ideas.  We hope to get answers from people all over the world! 


  1. I love to celebrate the holidays with my family and friends. My husband Donald and I always have a meal with Mr. and Mrs. Obach and open presents. On Christmas Eve, we visit our family friends at their shack for a fire and snacks. On Christmas morning, we open presents at my mom and dad's. We eat Eggs Benedict for brunch. On Boxing Day, we have a huge meal with my Hunter side of the family!

    1. Thank you for sharing your comment! Your Christmas celebrations sound nice. Thank you for answering us.
