Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
The "Festivals Everywhere" web site is based from its home page. Six items branch off of the home page: Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Epiphany, St. Lucia, and St. Nicholas. From there, each holiday's page has either a game, song, or recipe. The holiday web pages also give information on each holiday. This is to enhance the learning of the web site users. The web site also has a guest book, a comparison of the holidays St. Lucia and St. Nicholas, and a source list. The guest book has been put on our web site to receive comments from users or allow them to discuss why they have certain traditions. The comparison of St. Lucia and St. Nicholas is to show the users that both of the "Saints" are not the same holiday. Our page is original because most holiday web sites focus on a particular religion or geographic area, while ours focuses on a season.
