Christmas Party

The Romanian American community gathered together at Christmas time, following the HORA tradition. This past year, we had an exceptional attendance (over 160 attendees!), to celebrate our traditions, try some delicious traditional food, enjoy outstanding entertainment, listen to stories and get the children excited around nice presents. We were thrilled to have Costel Busuioc, the Romanian tenor winner of a Talent Competition, giving a great performance at our gathering, with Christmas Carols as well as beloved arias from well known Operas. Descendants of first generations of Romanian immigrants have shared their family recipes. The ensemble Plugusorul surprised and delighted us this year again with a lively performance of Christmas and New Year traditions from Northern Romania and Moldova, such as the Goat (Capra) and Bear (Ursul) dances. The evening ended with dance and singing along.
