Holiday shows are common as schools close out for winter break.

At Field Elementary in Pasadena, a Mandarin dual-language immersion school, the show recently was a smorgasbord of traditional holiday songs sung in English and Mandarin.

The new guitar learners gave a rendition of "Silent Night" and the kindergarten students sang "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" in Mandarin.
