Festival & Celebration Calendar

This is a calendar of celebrations and festivals around the world. Each celebration should ideally be celebrated at or very near the time of the actual celebration. This enables the children to have rich, meaningful experiences and learn purposefully. This gives the children an ideal opportunity to find out about the similarities and differences between cultures and communities. By celebrating every counties celebrations children will not only understand British Values but just as importantly other Countries Values.
