We got this in the 3 DVD Holiday pack and were not sure since my son at 16 months does not like elmo's world. It truly is wonderful. If covers, christmas as a holiday with santa and christmas card giving and then it moves to segments on how the different religions celebrate the holiday season:
hannukah, explaining the menorah (sp?), how it came to be and the dradle game
kawanza, explaining the african tradition and their candle lighting and what it symbolizes
Christmas with a funny rehearsal of the Jesus and the manger
Kids talking about Ramadan and Ede
It really is so educational and culturally exposing.
Our one-year-old son loves this dvd. It describes several holidays that people celebrate, as well as, Christmas. It also teaches that having Christmas spirit (or holiday spirit) is more important than giving someone a gift or thinking of the gifts that you will receive. The Elmo puppetry is also quite impressive.
