One of the features that makes this site unique is its inclusion of different cultures. Kids (and parents, too) are sure to learn something new in "Around the World," which describes how St. Nicholas and Christmas customs vary among 20 different countries, from Austria to the Ukraine. There's also a section that features drawings of St. Nick, submitted by kids from countries in Europe. Visitors who are looking for more hands-on activities will enjoy the simple animated games. They're mostly for younger kids, but older kids will be challenged by the second word search.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
