‘Tis the season

Kiwanians around the world celebrate the season with holiday  fetes and festivals. Here’s a look at some of our favorites.

Over the past decade, Kiwanis magazine has taken you on a holiday tour of the world. You’ve skated across the ice in the shadows of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg, France. You’ve boarded a bus in Colombia to witness the joy in children’s eyes as they sang, danced and laughed on a nighttime tour of lights. You’ve lost count counting the 1 million LED lights that illuminated a Minnesota park.

And, yes, you’ve even snuggled up for a kiss beneath the mistletoe at a German Christmas market.

In this issue, Kiwanis magazine samples a few of our favorite holiday stories from the past. But just some of our favorites. There just wasn’t space to go sledding down a snowy slope in warm Atascadero, California. Or take an icy “Polar Bear Plunge” in Northville, Michigan. Or crown a new St. Lucia on the shore of Sweden’s Lake Möckeln. Or. …

Where will Kiwanis magazine go next?

Tell us about your club’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, New Year, Boxing Day, Omisoka or other end-of-year holiday by emailing shareyourstory@kiwanis.org.

Meanwhile … happy holidays!
