This calendar is about the Christmas season from a different and unusual perspective. It’s based on physics, technology, natural science and most of all, on the chemistry of Christmas. Here these science subjects are linked together with the season of winter and the traditions of the holiday season.

It focuses a lot on food. The kitchen is the home’s laboratory and many experiments are conducted there, both everyday and for special occasions. Many of Christmas’s special dishes came from a time when care had to be taken in both preparation and preservation so that the food wouldn’t spoil. How does one keep food for a long time when you don’t have a freezer, for example?

Some of the doors are about cold and frost, light and warmth. You’ll get lots of tips about fun experiments and investigations that you can do as a group, or by yourself.

Merry Christmas!
