Studying Christmas around the world was one of my favorite unit studies as a homeschooler. But I had limited resources available in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, you’ll find a huge number of resources available online. I’ve organized more than 40 free resources for you to more easily create your own Christmas around the world unit study for multiple ages.
This post is called 40+ resources, but many of the resources have many links within them, so hundreds of resources is more accurate!

These resources can be used to create a Christmas Around the World unit study of a few countries or many countries. If you already have a Little Passports World Edition subscription, you could use some of the ideas here to prepare some extra Christmas activities for the country you’re studying!
