It was a chance to learn about how Christmas was celebrated in other cultures as Regional Connections presented Around the World on Dec. 1.
Alesha Hildebrand, Volunteer and Integration Coordinator for Regional Connections said they host an annual event.
“This year we wanted to bring different cultures together and learn about how they celebrate the holidays and what may be different from what we do in Canada,” she said.
The event featured short talks from people representing various cultures, musical entertainment, traditional foods and a visit from Santa.
“It’s a good learning experience so we wanted to team up with the library in order to do that, because the library is such a great central place for an opportunity to learn and experience first hand the diversity in our community,” she said. “We’re really excited to do that here.”
