While the greater bunch of school aged children are having their summer vacation, homeschoolers in this corner are learning about holidays and what they celebrate. Since as homeschoolers, we are not really affected when Malacanang announces a no school day. We do school anyway. Lovely too that we get to declare our own no school day just because. 🙂
But aside from our homeschooler getting used to Teacher Mama searching for birthday and Anniversary Gifts for Husband and family online, he really is not very familiar with holidays. The holidays he is used to are birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas Day and Easter. Learning about holidays is a fun way of learning about history and culture (local and international). We would often go to Wikipedia to learn more about them if we are not very familiar with a holiday. It also allows us to appreciate our country more during special national holidays.
