This year, however, the diminishing sunshine and freezing temperatures have taken a toll on young Eve, and she finds herself suffering from the winter blues. Determined to snap herself out of them, Eve decides to explore the winter festivals that humans celebrate and in the process discovers that each festival has a special light to offer. Through this charming journey through winter light festivals celebrated annuallyincluding Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and the Chinese New YearEve discovers that light is actually held within and that until the sun comes back to brighten our days, we can warm our own hearts and each other with reminders of the holidays.
