Anti-Bias Education and Holidays: Making Thoughtful Decisions
"Acknowledging or celebrating holidays in early childhood programs can bring pleasure to many families, staff, and children and can be useful in building connections between school and families.

Whether or not to include any holidays in your curriculum, and what activities to use if you do, requires thoughtful decision making."
