Let's party

Burns Night, Chinese New Year, Saraswati Puja, Setsuban, Valentine's Day. We are good home educators and we will know about them all, oh yes we will.

But don't tell me about any more. I will have a breakdown. Admittedly we have not yet got round to Thanksgiving or Kwanzaa but we're getting there. We could do the next lot in one inspired multicultural party. We can dress in kilts, eat Chinese takeaways, dance to Bollywood, chuck some beans about and then tell everyone we love them. That should do it. Because we are educators we'll do it in Latin. Because we are British, we'll party politely and queue. And, by the way, we're boycotting Tu B'Shevat.

You can tell I have the diary out and am planning the culture bit of a PSE curriculum.

OK, google on Personal and Social Education. Not Precision Shooting Equipment, obviously.

At this rate, you would be doing nothing but celebrating international holidays. It's very multicultural of you and admirable. Do you need some Dutch holidays? I could supply you with some. Have you decorated branches for Easter yet? It's an old Dutch tradition.
