Interfaith Exploration    
                              December 2010    
Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays from gnaana!  However you celebrate the final days of 2010, we hope you cherish this time with your family and friends. 
Speaking of holidays, Do You Celebrate Christmas?  We're surveying our readers to see how many do or don't and why. Take a moment to answer our brief, 5-question, confidential survey.  Results will be posted later this week on our blog. 
A reminder to place your holiday orders by 5p.m. EST, December 16th (that's this Thursday) to avoid express shipping charges.
Until next year!

What are you doing with your kids this winter break?  How about some interfaith exploration?  With all the talk of different holidays, your kids are probably more than a little curious about what all the fuss is about.  Take some time this month to schedule some field trips to a few local places of worship - it's sure to be an eye-opening experience.  It's also a chance for kids to learn more about their own faith - by comparing and contrasting it with what others practice. 
Gnaana's founder, Aruna Hatti, will be writing a special series of blog posts over the next few weeks about her field trips with her son - so don't miss out. Read More...

 Karadi Rhymes

We can't say enough good things about Karadi Tales    - they carry audio books about Indian mythology and folk tales for almost every age and language.  For starters, we recommend Karadi Rhymes  - Volumes 1 & 2.  With catchy tunes about chai, mangoes, Indian rivers, sambar and religions, they are fun for all ages.  WARNING:  you may not be able to get the songs out of your head!  View here ...
