๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป Yellow Bear Adventures in Mexico and Germany


๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป The Christmas Around the World tour for the Yellow Bears continued to Mexico on Wednesday and Germany on Thursday. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป In Mexico we learned about the Las Posadas celebration that commemorates the journey that Mary and Joseph took in search for a safe place for baby Jesus to be born. Two of our Yellow Bears re-enacted a portion of the story where Mary and Joseph go from place to place looking for lodging. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป On our trek to Germany, we pretended to fly to France and then take a train ride to Germany. We entered the beautifully decorated sanctuary of GFBC to learn that just like from England, many of our Christmas traditions come from Germany - the Christmas tree, the Advent wreath, music, holiday plays, and several Christmas carols written by German composers. ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป Merry Christmas from the Yellow Bears!

๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป We gathered around the piano to sing Christmas carols written by German composers.

๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿป To remember that our Christmas tree tradition came from Germany, we made Christmas trees with pine cones. ๐ŸŽ„
