Hundreds of LI kids get lesson on New Year's traditions around the world
Hundreds of kids from across Long Island were treated to a lesson on New Year's traditions from around the world Saturday at the Long Island Children's Museum.
Educators at the museum said most kids know about their own New Year's traditions but not about what happens worldwide. Kids were treated to a host of activities about New Year's in various countries such as China, where putting money in a red envelope represents a prosperous new year.
Both parents and kids said the museum is great. One parent said what she loves about the museum is all the hands-on activities.
