My Favorite Holiday

With all the different holidays that kids can celebrate with their families, we asked kids to tell us about their favorite holiday and how they celebrate it in words and/or pictures.  We received 11 submissions and participants received a free polar bear sticker and were entered into a random prize drawing for a $15 gift certificate for Fratelli’s Pizza…yum 🙂  Congratulations to Mahira, Grade 4, for her winning entry below about Eid-ul-Fitr, her favorite holiday.

We want to congratulate everyone that participated in this blog contest because you all did a fabulous job writing about and illustrating your favorite holiday, which makes you all winners!  Many thanks to everyone that participated and here are your awesome entries, ready to share with the world:
