Hi friends!

One thing I love about the holiday season is incorporating studies into our homeschool that we don’t normally get to do. That includes curricula outside of our normal routine. It helps to continue to cultivate a love of learning, and add in some fun activities from time to time. Not to mention, break up the usual and sometimes mundane of our homeschool.

So when I heard about Christmas Around the World from the Awe Filled Homemaker , I knew I had to share with all of you!

This post contains affiliate links to products we highly recommend, for details about our affiliate partnerships click here. 

This is such an entertaining way to continue the learning through the holiday season. Most children are naturally curious about other cultures, and this study delivers. It covers 20 countries and their Christmas traditions. Learning about the differences between cultures of these countries was truly fascinating. It will keep your children engaged and curious for more!


This study not only covers the traditions of 20 countries, but also touches on advent, St Nicholas, and the Birth of Christ. We have enjoyed working though it as a family; even my youngest learners are intrigued by all the interesting facts and traditions.

I encourage you to enjoy this study in your homeschool with the entire family. To add to the fun, you will receive a passport that includes stamps to all the countries your children will “visit.”

Ideas to Enhance the Study:

• Bake or Cook Holiday Recipes from Each Country
• Find Each Country in the Atlas or Maps to Reinforce Mapping Skills
• Create a Keepsake Workbook to Gift the Grandparents or Keep
• Allow the Children to Create an Oral Presentation to Share with the Whole Family
• Laminate the Passports to Make Them More “Official”

I hope your family enjoys this study as much as we have! Of course, you can do this study anytime, but it is also conveniently set up to do one small portion a day for 24 days to lead right up to Christmas. I love it when something is already prepped and planned out! Just purchase and print! Buy once and use year after year.
