12 Days of Holiday Stories – 2023

In December, join HaHaHa Kidzfest as we celebrate 12 Days of Holiday Stories. Each Day will include a link to a story for you to enjoy together as a family during this holiday season as well as a corresponding activity to complete together.

The theme for Kidzfest 2024 is “Where Our Stories Meet” and throughout this holiday season we hope that the stories that we are sharing with you will allow you to connect with those around you, some who may share similar holiday celebration stories and others who may have a new celebration story to share with you.

Story videos and activities will be posted on odd days beginning December 3rd through to December 23 with a final story and activity on December 26 both as at Facebook Event as well as here on our website. All stories will remain posted on the website throughout our event so you never have to miss one!

Day 1: The Fir Tree
