Christmas Around the World Day 8: Spain

Morning table.
We learned a lot about Spain today.  We learned that the people from Spain are called Spanish or Spaniards and they speak Spanish.
Gifts are brought to the children by The Three Kings on Epiphany Eve.  The Christmas season begins on the Day of Immaculate Conception, December 8th, and that is why we celebrated today.  Other feast days that are important to the Spaniards are the Feast of the Holy Innocents and the Feast of the Three Kings.  The King that the children hope will visit them is Balthazar, who usually rides on a donkey and brings gifts.
Hard at work.
Eating Turron, we had a variety pack including Almond Crunch, Almond Caramel with Sesame Seeds, and Almond Crocanti.
Work board.
Spelling test.
She only missed 6 of the 46 words.  The hard ones were; they, there, were, this, but, and come.
It was also the first night of Hanukkah.  We had a nice time playing games while the candles burned down.
Including a fun game of dreidel.
