The children and their families did arts and crafts and sang songs together. They also reconnected with old friends and created new bonds of friendship.

Based on the experience, the team decided that going forward, the Holy Days will be used as a way for families to introduce their friends and contacts to the community-building activities of the neighbourhood.
