Christmas is a time for everyone on CBeebies
WITH Father Christmas, Christmas trees and the birth of baby Jesus, this is the time of year when people celebrate Christmas. But other faiths celebrate around this time of year as well.
Now CBeebies has a new series called Let’s Celebrate, which looks at the colour, music, sights, sounds and stories of the various festivals celebrated by different people, from the Chinese New Year to Christmas.
The series visits a different British community in each episode to join in the excitement of their celebrations.
The programmes then show a musical or dramatic performance which tells the story behind the festival.
Festivals featured in the series include: Vaisakhi, Eid-ulFitr, Holi, Wesak, Purim, Diwali, Easter, St Patrick’s Day, St David’s Day, St George’s Day, St Andrew’s Day and Norouz.
Let’s Celebrate starts on CBeebies (channel 306 on DStv) on December 16 at 9.45am and 5.45pm and continues every day at 5.45pm.
