Starting of the presentation singing multi-lingual songs followed by informative speeches on eight different countries or holidays; Hanukkah, Christmas, Ramadan, Diwali, Winter Solstice, Harvest, Chinese New Year and Kwanzaa. The children exchanged gifts, talked about their own family traditions and enjoyed treats from around the world.

There were homemade paper lanterns for the Chinese New Year, shared experiences for Las Posadas in Mexico, candleholders for Kwanzaa and Challah bread for Hanukkah.
