What did you or your ancestors do to celebrate Christmas at school? Were you ever in a Christmas Pageant?
We would have "holiday parties" at school (usually a potluck lunch thing) but never Christmas events and we never had the traditional pageant either. Honestly, when I was little I was so wrapped up in my birthday, Christmas and going on vacation from school to really pay attention to any holiday activities that were going on (I went to a non-traditional school until high school so participating in most of the events and goings-on was optional and therefore, easy to ignore). We did do "gingerbread parties" at school where we would make gingerbread houses. I remember one year I made a candy "security camera" for my gingerbread house and a reporter from the local paper was there and thought it was so cute that I got a mention in my local paper. I think I was about five or six and it was my first time "in print." I still have the article somewhere... I don't know that my parents or ancestors did much for Christmas at school, if they did I've never heard about it (yet).
