Children re-tell the mystery

Happy Holidays! One of the things I love about this season is how children absorb the magic of their family’s holiday tradition by hearing and telling its stories.

As we course through Hanukkah, Al Hijra, Ashura, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, and Epiphany, a lot of wonderful stories are being re-lived.

Please share with us by sending links to your tradition’s favorites in the "Add New Comment" area below. My contribution is this delightful 21st century rendition of the Christmas story from children in Auckland, New Zealand.
