For The Juniors: Celebrations - New Year
Celebrations - New Year
Season 1  |  Episode 4  |  ABC  |  November 25, 2009

This program opens with the countdown to the end of a year. Graphics are used to explain the concept of one year ending and another beginning. Children are introduced to the idea that not all people celebrate New Year at the same time. We witness the strict rituals of a Jewish New Year celebration, both inside a synagogue and at home. We experience the unique sights and sounds of a Chinese New Year, from the hypnotic chanting inside a Buddhist temple to the raucous, vibrant dragon dances.
