The History Of Christmas

A quick note before I start. If you still have been unable to get a Zhu Zhu pet hamster, at a reasonable price, my local Walmart notified me this morning that they have them in, and will be selling about 90 a day. Toys R Us also states they will have them available for purchase. So if you need one check the websites, or call your local Walmart to see if they have them. I did get mine, the other day, so I am set. I must thank my local Chiefland Walmart, and their managers for sticking with me, and keeping me updated. They never forgot me, and I so appreciate that.




One of my favorite websites, History.com has sent me an email about their History of Christmas series. I will be using this after the break, for teaching the History of Christmas. They have a whole section on the traditions of Christmas, and how they started. They also have info in Hanukkah and Kwanza, to make for a complete lesson. Be sure to check it out, and save it to your favorites. The video below is just one of the videos, they have offered. Go here to see all the wonderful options, you can use to make a complete lesson plan about Christmas.

Congrats on getting the rat! I have mine locked in the closet, waiting for Christmas. I will have to check out the options on history.com. Those sound really interesting.

Anne, yes the rat is wrapped and ready to be unwrapped. Yay I am so excited.

Thanks for the video. We did some research on the origins of Christmas this year too.
