festive soul food :: book of days

today my festive SOUL food lesson airs on community thrive.  yay!!! we had to create a lesson based around a holiday or festival from our hometown.   most of you know that i'm from the bahamas and what better festival to celebrate than the big one that happens at the end of every year.....

for Junkanoo teams members create fantastical brightly coloured costumes to parade the streets of downtown, dancing and playing music for the crowds gathered.   my lesson is based on this concept of celebration.......and you know it had to have loads of colour, and be something you can journal in right?  of course you say!
