Holiday Traditions Around the World

Thursday, December 21, 2023 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Michelle Feneberg Join international speaker

Michelle Feneberg for this festive holiday themed talk. Michelle has lived in five countries and will be our "tour guide" as we take a multicultural trip around the world. We'll roam the dark streets of Bavaria and face the Perchten Monsters frightening away the evil winter spirits. We will continue past Sweden and meet little St. Lucia bringing light into the dark winter and we will end in sunny Brazil as the people present offerings of perfume and flowers to the Water-goddess Lemanja in the hope that their wishes for the New Year are granted. Along the way we will see how Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are celebrated, meet Saint Nicholas and laugh at the downright nutty Shepherd Boy tradition in Catalonia, Spain.
