Holiday Henry’s Journey Through LADSBS

Miller Place Students Host Multicultural Holiday Celebrations with Old Friend Holiday Henry

MILLER PLACE, NEW YORK (JANUARY 2021)—Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach’s students kicked off their multicultural holiday celebrations this year with some help from an old gnome and friend, Holiday Henry. After four years of worldwide traveling, Holiday Henry returned to LADSBS to share his insight on cultural and religious traditions that take place in other parts of the world. 

The initiative, designed to encourage students to value and appreciate the winter traditions and holidays of others, began in 2016 when Holiday Henry made his first arrival at LADSBS as part of his long quest to acquire knowledge of December holidays. He visited 15 classrooms in the building where he witnessed kindness that radiated from each LADSBS classroom before heading off.
