Research into Festivals


Choose one of the following festivals and do some research to find out more about it. Useful websites are listed, but you may also find it helpful to consult library books, including encyclopedias.

It is very important not to copy information directly from your sources. Instead, you should make notes and later use the notes to write your own text. (Click here for an example of how to do this.)
