Christmas Around the World Resources

I’ve always loved Christmas Around the World unit studies. I think it’s very interesting to have a look at what other countries and cultures do to celebrate Christmas. It’s been a couple of years since we did a Christmas Around the World unit. But since my younger crew has been studying geography, I think it’s time to do one again this year. If you’re interested in doing your own Christmas Around the World study, here are some great resources.

Although you can put together your own unit study using books and resources around the web, I enjoy already put together units- especially if they include a lapbook. I’m using this lapbook from Hands of a Child as my central study for this year.

If you’re looking for a free unit that is already put together, this one from Homeschool Share is great. We’ve used it in the past.

And, I haven’t used this one before, but here is a theme unit that uses links from around the web to take you around to different countries and cultures. It is also free.

This site-– has a very complete list of countries and information about their Christmas celebrations.

Santa’s Net also has a huge list of countries and a way that you can learn how to say Merry Christmas in many languages.

If you are looking for a little history, this site shares the Christmas celebrations from the earliest recorded history of many countries.

Kids World Travel Guide has a few little blurbs about Christmas celebrations in countries around the world.

Christmas World has a huge list of countries to choose from – the most I’ve seen- and they also have some other cool Christmas activities on the sidebar.

And here are some books for even more Christmas Around the World fun. (Click on the book for more information.)
