Why do religious people celebrate?

This half term we looked at the various Religious celebrations from around the world and how they could be compared- similarities and differences.  We thought about why we celebrate initially, what gives us good reason to celebrate and why this means so much to us.  The festivals we explored were Holi, Eid ul Fitr, Easter; all Spring based events that managed to fit nicely with the season as it progressed.  The children were able to observe some wonderful spectacles of such festivities within the classroom and share our own experiences through those of different faiths and beliefs.
