Text Box: days. There’s tons of special days in different religions this time of year, and we just don’t know where to begin when it comes to talking about all of them. So in other words, have a great season and no matter what religion you are, what color you are, remember that it doesn’t matter about our differences. We are all celebrating for one Text Box:     CULM wants to wish you a happy holiday season. Last year’s holiday issue had descriptions of different holidays and activities you could do to celebrate them. This year we did not, simply because the holidays we featured earlier were more main stream holidays, and we felt like we were leaving out those who did not celebrate those holiText Box: reason or another so sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Text Box: Wintertime Sparkle bottles
Text Box: looks like in the winter; let dry. Fill up the bottle 3/4 of the way with corn syrup, then throw in a small handful of confetti. Top of the bottle with water and twist the lid on very tight. Also you can add a couple of drops of food coloring in to the mix to make it more interesting. Shake and watch the “snow” fly. It’s a nice decoration for a windowsill or on top of a desk. 
Text Box:     This is a project that is fun all year long, but is especially great in the winter when some of the world is getting snow. You’ll need just a couple of things:
