Winter Festivals – Comparison Task

Winter Festivals – Comparison Task

December is not just the month of Christmas, in years gone by there have been many festivals that have been at this time. In fact, Jesus’ birth was most likely not in December, but there were so many festivals at this time that Christians chose this time to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Pagan’s celebrate the Winter Solstice every year, which is the shortest day of the year. There is normally a big celebration at Stonehenge.

Hanukkah

In 2016, Hannukkah starts at dusk on the 24th December and lasts for 8 days. This is a Jewish festival of light. It celebrates the time when Jews won a battle against the greeks. They lit an oil lamp in their temple that only had enough oil to burn for 1 day but the oil lasted 8 days. This is why the festival lasts for 8 days. See the Video below to see how Jewish people celebrate Hannukkah.

Assignment Help Booklet

Assignment Help Booklet

I have created a help guide to your assignment to help with structure and what you should be doing.

This is not a complete plan, you will have to do a lot more than complete this booklet to gain a pass in RMPS. It can be used at National 5 or Higher Level.

If any other RMPS want to use it, feel free but please can you give me some feedback. So that we can make it even better, what else should I include etc.

EDIT – I Have corrected all the spelling and formatting mistakes that were in the original booklet.
