Our riy went caroling January 8th which was a snowy Sunday. We all met at CYM and dressed up in our vyshyvani sorochky. We visited many families in Yonkers who welcomed us into their houses to hear our carols. We engaged in conversations with them, and also had the chance to eat several things that were served. We loved hearing the compliments on our singing and making people smile, but also were very thankful for receiving many generous donations. Our riy spent this time together to spread our culture and celebrate the Christmas season!
