Vibrant Wanderings - Fall Traditions on Alldonemonkey.comWelcome to our very first Multicultural Kids Blogging Carnival!   I am so honored to be working with the wonderful bloggers that form the Multicultural Kid Blogs group.  Today marks the beginning of a new collaboration: a monthly blogging carnival, where we share posts that we have each written on a topic of common interest.

This month we wanted to celebrate the season by sharing fall traditions important to our family and/or community.  Since we are spread out around the world, the posts below give us a window into how families all over the globe welcome fall!
