In order to be a competent communicator in not only English but also other languages, you have to know the culture of the people you are talking to. The best way to learn their culture is investigating their festivals in which their belief, customs, etc. are best reflected through traditional food and celebrations. In ‘Festivals’ written by Susan Holden (2006), information and pictures about festivals in different places such as Carnival, Christmas, New Year, Easter, Eid for Muslims, Diwali for Hindus, Hanukkah for Jews, Budda’s Birthday in Asia, etc. are provided for you to read, reflect, compare and do research with fun projects.
