Fall Traditions and Celebrations Around the World

All over the world, families and cultures have unique traditions celebrated in the fall. We asked a group of families around the world to share with us their celebrations. Here are the many beautiful and joyous celebrations, big and small, they shared with us from different corners of the world. This post is part of a regular monthly blogging carnival with Multicultural Kid Blogs, hosted by a different and talented multicultural blog each month. Thanks so much to all who shared their celebrations with us.
