This is Emily Yeung celebrating the holidays!

Emily Yeung joins a local gospel caroling group and sings some carols in the neighbourhood. At each neighbour she visits, Emily is invited in to see how they practice their cultural festivities. After the visits, Emily goes home to decorate her Christmas tree and make Christmas cookies. That night all her new friends join her for a party where they sample the foods each family made and sing Deck the Halls!

Emily Yeung celebrates Chanukah - she helps make latkes and plays the dreidel game before helping light the menorah candles.

Emily Yeung learns that Eid is a Muslim celebration of family and sharing. She makes a special envelope with a donation to her favourite charity, makes paper lanterns to decorate the house, and helps prepare savai, a traditional dessert.

Emily Yeung joins a family celebrating the harvest festival of Kwanzaa. She helps lay out a cloth on which she places a ceremonial mat and a candle-holder with seven candles. Emily learns about the three colours of Kwanzaa and their meanings. Then she helps pour a libation into the Unity Cup for the ancestors. Finally, she helps make cornbread, a traditional Kwanzaa harvest food.
