COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Public Library celebrated the Christmas season with a Holiday party last night, Dec. 11 at 4 p.m. Children learned Christmas traditions from all parts of the world with a Christmas traditions quiz and how to say “Merry Christmas” in all different languages.

“We love to develop the love of learning and reading in the children,” said Cindy Shutt, Children’s Program Assistant at the library who led the program. “We hope they learn the different Christmas traditions and customs around the world.”

Shutt led the group in a chorus of ‘Jingle Bells’ and the children also played games and made a Christmas craft to take home. Their Christmas craft was candy poppers, also known as Christmas Crackers, which is an English tradition dating back to the 1800s. The kids packed their poppers full of candy and made them out of toilet paper rolls and wrapping paper.

Before leaving, the kids had Christmas snacks from around the world including Spekulatuis cookies from Germany, Danish cookies, pretzels, and punch.
