This morning we got the opportunity to "Hangout" with a 1st grade class in Castlerock, Colorado. We spoke with them about various holiday traditions in our towns. We found out that Castlerock is a town of about 20,000 people and they have an annual tradition called Star Lighting! They have a large rock in town which they put a star on top of. After Thanksgiving, Santa comes and lights the star which stays lit until the end of December. We told them about the annual tradition that our Pulaski library has with the Frosty's Wonderland. We found out that our celebrations had several things in common. We also told them about the tradition that our village had until this year of putting the Christmas trees up on the light posts.
It was a neat experience and one which we hope we can again share with Mrs. Breithart's class.
