Merry Chriskwanzanukah

Shana Banana

Merry Chriskwanwhatukah? Not only will children will be wishing “Merry Chirskwanzanukah” to all of their friends after seeing Shana Banana’s holiday show; they will be able to explain a little bit about the cultural traditions, differences and similarities between Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa and Eid while gaining a new sense of appreciation and excitement about the season. Shana Banana (with her dog puppets Hal and Henson) focus on a variety of cultures in America and how each culture celebrates the December holidays. She also demonstrates that these holidays have much in common, and that children can take the shared traditions of giving, love, food, family, and cultural appreciation to extend the light of the holiday spirit year-round.
Saturday, December 5, starting at 10:30 a.m.  Celebrate Hanukah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas with stories and songs presented virtually by our special guest, storyteller, and vocalist, Shana Banana.  You will also be able to visit and talk with Santa Claus!  This program will be live streaming.  A recording of the program will remain on our website until Saturday, December 12, if you miss the live performance.
