Santa on a speedboat or surfboard instead of a sleigh? December is warm in much of the world. Design holiday cards to fit the season—and the climate!
When you think of Christmas, do you think of snow, sleighs, and hot cocoa? In many parts of the world, including Florida, Brazil, and Australia, Christmas and related December holidays are just as festive, but they are celebrated with a slightly different twist because it's warm! In the Southern Hemisphere, December is summer.
Locate areas around the world that are close to the equator. Which countries are located in the Southern Hemisphere? What do you think the climate is like on Christmas Day in these areas?
Find out how people living in warm climates celebrate Christmas. How do you think Santa Claus dresses for a balmy or steamy Christmas? In shorts and a muscle shirt? Does he get around in speedboat or on a surfboard? An Australian song states that, instead of reindeer, large kangaroos pull Santa's sleigh.
Fold paper into a card. Sketch your holiday greetings from or to Australia or another warm-weather location with Crayola® Colored Pencils or Color Sticks. Write your message and draw on the outside and inside of the card.
Have a Merry Christmas—wherever you are!
