On a block dressed up in Red and Green
one house shone Blue and White. 

It’s a holiday season that both Isaac, whose family is Jewish, and Teresa, whose family is Christian, have looked forward to for months! They’ve been counting the days, playing in the snow, making cookies, drawing (Teresa) and writing poems (Isaac). They enjoy all the things they share, as well as the things that make them different. 

But when Isaac’s window is smashed in the middle of the night, it seems like maybe not everyone appreciates “difference.” 

Inspired by a true story, this is a tale of a community that banded together to spread light.
