Holiday vs Holiday (from a Mascot’s Perspective)

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is currently closed for new memberships. Join the waitlist to be notified when it re-opens.


Students will analyze and judge a holiday from the perspective of another holiday's mascot.

  • What would a snowman think about Halloween?
  • What would a ghost think about Thanksgiving?
  • What would cranberry sauce think about Christmas?


  1. Students choose their two holidays and the mascot they'll be using.
  2. Students brainstorm facts about both holidays using three categories that they choose (food, songs, decorations, clothing, etc).
  3. Using their mascot's perspective, students write about each of those categories.
  4. Students take that writing and turn it into a final product of your (or their) choosing.
