For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
Symbols of Christmas FHE
This lesson teaches what some of the symbols of Christmas are and what they represent. The idea for this lesson came from several sources. Every December we do what the girls call fun school. Instead of regular school we do unit studies about Christmas or winter. One unit study that we've done several times is learning about the symbols of Christmas. The other source for this lesson is the story "Teach the Children" about Santa Claus imploring a parent to teach the children about the true meaning of Christmas.
