Depending on the shape and design of the piece, it can be hung, taped, or placed anywhere to boost the holiday spirit. In addition to making corn husk dolls, the visitors also had a chance to decorate their own traditional Hungarian gingerbread cookies, or mezeskalacs.

This decorative snack is popular during Christmas time, and the process of decorating the cookies is something that brings friends and family together - much like dumplings during Spring Festival.

"I want my children to experience different cultures and learn about their tradition," one visitor said.

"Events such as this one give us just that - an opportunity for people to interact and learn about our respective cultures and customs."
