Thanks for your comment. It's fun to celebrate the many traditions surrounding December Holidays. One of my student's families introduced me to Santa Lucia Day. I was so pleased they shared it with my class and with me. Woven hearts may be too difficult for younger students unless you do lots of prep work and cutting, but you could make simplified versions that are half white and half red.
Last week I wrote about a Mexican celebration, Las Posadas, that your Hispanic students might enjoy.
