What has Celebration Bear been up to?
On Friday, Celebration Bear visited one of our pupils this time to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi the elephant god in Hinduism.
There was a big gathering with lots of Indian food! Celebration Bear had good fun meeting friends and family and he really enjoyed the party! To find out more, click here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha
On Monday, Celebration Bear visited one of our Nursery children and had a special Rosh Hashanah dinner with her. Rosh Hashanah in Hebrew means the head of the year - on this day we celebrate the beginning of a new Jewish year.
He made a happy New year card with some help, and sang some of the holiday blessings, but they were all in Hebrew (so were a bit tricky for the Bear to learn!).
He also tried some of the holiday's traditional foods and treats, which included:
- A round Challa (sweet bread)
- Honey cake
- Apples dipped in honey - so that this year would be sweet - those were his favourites!
- Pomegranate - so that we will be full of good deeds like the pomegranate is full of seeds.
Wishing everyone a SHANA TOVA - Happy New Year.
