Research Papers Complete

Lovejoy seniors have completed research papers on the origin of numerous US holidays comparing them to similar holidays in Brasil. One of the areas in which there was no comparison was Civil Liberties holidays. The United States has many such holidays, but Brasil does not. Other titles of the research papers include Celebrations of Love (Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries), Christmas, Thanksgiving (which is not a Brasilian holiday) and New Years, and Patriotic Holidays.

In Brasil students are out of school for Christmas. Their holiday will extend into late February because it is summer there. In addition to "Language Arts" at Lovejoy and "English" as a foreign language in Brasil, we have learned much about geography, history, and culture.

Work on the book will continue after the holidays.
