Here is what the program helps say about this theme:
Many of our holiday traditions this month involve lights—the star of Bethlehem, miracle of the lamps, the morning star that enlightened Buddha, the bonfires at yule. We show respect for the customs of others by sharing our holiday traditions with the pack and den: lights on a Christmas tree, candles on a menorah for Hanukkah, or on a Kwanzaa kinara. Boys can light the way this month by brightening someone’s holiday season while learning more about how others celebrate this season.
So this theme will revolve around the ideas of cultures and service. Below you’ll find some ways to form your pack and den programs around this theme.
