Known festivals from eight countries are briefly outlined from the viewpoint of children. (The countries are the United States, South Africa, China, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Swaziland, and Mexico). An exercise is also provided in which the students match the individual festivals to the continents of the countries where the festivals are celebrated.

Information and ideas:
The topic of festivals can be used as a starting point for the students to discuss the customs and traditions of other countries. This should develop awareness and tolerance for differences in other people.
