Everyone loves the holiday season in December, and kids and teachers love this tab that explores our traditions and celebrations. Special emphasis is placed on how holidays give a sense of community and reinforce the importance of community in our lives. Newspaper activities give new meaning to the phrase “community news.” This tab could easily be broken up and run as an in-paper series.

Sample Newspaper Activity
Hanukkah gifts for children are often not big. Look through the ads in the newspaper and pick out 8 items you might give as gifts to a younger brother or sister. How much would these gifts cost? Now repeat the shopping for an older brother or sister. How much would eight gifts cost for this person?

Sponsor Suggestion
Diversity groups, neighborhood or community organizations, ecumenical clergy associations, colleges or universities, retail holiday advertisers (co-op sponsorships).
