This article is created in conjunction with Kids’ Lit Quiz™, a fun literary competition where children aged 10-13 years old answer questions on children’s books ranging from classics to comics.
Singapore will be participating in Kids’ Lit Quiz™ for the fifth time in 2018. If you think you’ve got what it takes, let your teachers know and register a team of 4 students from the same school! Registration opens in Feb 2018.
Christmas is a season of joy and giving. It is also an opportunity for family and friends to gather, to feast on Christmas dishes, and to exchange gifts! Do you look forward to Christmas too?
Here are some fun facts about Christmas that you can share with your family and friends to impress them:
- If someone really received all of the presents from The Twelve Days of Christmas, they would have a total of 364 presents.
- There is a Santa Claus Post Office in Northern Finland that receives over 500,000 letters addressed to Santa each year.
- Santa Claus has different names in different parts of the world. For example, he is known as Papai Noel in Brazil and Julenissen in Norway.
