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.
