Another event makes a comeback: the Polish Home Association presents the annual Mikołajki party for children to celebrate Christmas traditions at the Polish Cultural Center. This is a community-wide event and all children are invited, regardless whether they speak Polish or English. Due to COVID restrictions, a visit by Santa Claus is not confirmed at this time, but there will be a photo booth and an opportunity to take family pictures with the kids.
Other attractions this year include:
- a gingerbread house contest; deadline to bring your creation is 1 pm on December 5, 2021; the little wonders will be on display on the stage at the dining room
- making Christmas ornaments
- decorating cookies
There will be also a Christmas card contest and for that one, you don’t need to be present at the party. Write your wishes on a Christmas card and drop the card or the letter in the Santa mailbox located at the first floor of the Polish Cultural Center. The mailbox will be there till December 5, 2021. Or you can drop your card in the mailbox when you come to the party. You can use any technique and material you like for the card. The only rule is that the card must fit into the mailbox. Santa’s helper elves will choose their favorite cards to display at the Polish Cultural Center.
This is a free event sponsored by the Polish Home Association.
