Our first stop on our world tour of the Christmas Holiday had us landing in Nigeria. Oh yeah I guess I better translate the title. It is pronounced "EH-koo oh-DONE eh-BEE hay-SUE", This means "Happy celebration on the birth of Jesus Christ" in the language of Yoruba. A tribe in Nigeria.
The project that they share in the book is decorating palm branches. The Nigerians actually decorate palm trees instead of evergreen trees at Christmas. They believe that palm branches are a sign of peace and a symbol of Christmas.
Make sure to check back for our next stop on the world tour.
