This time on The Childrens Hour, the Kids Crew does a deep dive to learn about birthday traditions from around the world. Here in the United States, many kids can expect a birthday cake, candles, presents, and maybe even a party. But in some regions, like where The Childrens Hour is in the Southwest, we have even more to add to a birthday celebration.

Elsewhere in the world, families celebrate in many different ways, with different traditions, foods, and ceremonies to mark each new year. What do you do for your birthday?

This show is mixed with music honoring birthdays. Grab a piece of cake and join us for our birthday party!
Katie Stone, Executive Producer
Breaks can be added at exactly 20:00 and 40:00

The Children's Hour is a weekly, educational and entertaining public radio program for kids and families. Using excellent music, expert guests, talented kids and a format that is a proven success in growing and keeping listeners of all ages engaged.

The Children's Hour includes kids in all aspects of the production. We're dedicated to filling educational gaps, by focusing on civics, STEM, culture, and performance, using interviews with scientists, astronauts, civil servants, cultural educators, performers and others, and weaving shows together with a wide variety of musical genres.

Kids on our crew and in our community contribute content, design programming, and cohost our shows, live in public venues, and in studio.

We are happy to make station tags. Just reach out to us at
