I am Susanne from middle-west Germany. In my area the kids are
already on holiday but that's different in the federal countries. Our
holidays last for about 6 weeks which is not that much. Furthermore
we have another 2 weeks in autumn, in winter and in spring.
The holidays also refer to the Christian calendar so that's the
We will start school again on 11th August. This is a month that is
usually very hot so the kids want to have longer holidays.

Holidays in Romania are very loved by children. The longest holiday
is the summer holiday which starts in June and ends in
September.During the holidays most children enjoy spending a few days
at least somewhere else, in the mountains, at the seaside , in the
country with their grandparents or cousins, or abroad. Then they
enjoy to share their impressions about their activities.
The children also love the Christmas holiday which brings them snow,
a Christmas tree and lots of presents.
In spring they enjoy the Easter holiday when they go to church and
celebrate Easter according to our orthodox tradition with painted
eggs and lamb and Easter cakes.

Happy holi to one and all
Dear friends from Cornwall and other parts of the world,
Though Holi is a fest of colours and friendship some people spoil it by drinking ,gambling and fighting;some others indulge in eve-teasing and smear colours on unwilling persons;some throw dung,dirt and balloons on others.
Though such people are a few ,yet these people kill the joy and happiness and the very spirit of the festival.
Sneha Grover and Haren chaudhary
Hi all, baby Edward doing well, thanks to all well wishers and kind thoughts.
At school we have been looking at what makes Cornwall unique and different to the rest of the UK.
This looks more at unique customs and traditions.
