Punctual on December first, our office turned into a winter wonderland and the Christmas spirit moved in. We used the time to share our Christmas tradtitions and to visit the Christmas market. The real Christmas lovers between us used the time to watch once a week a Christmas movie.
Before everyone is going crazy with buying last minute christmas presents (socks by the way are not the best choice), our association came together and celebrated the yearly christmas party.
Next to the typical polish dish pieroggi & soup, everyone brought some snacks, so a sugar shock and a good time have been predictable.
After a few short speeches, the buffet was open & while eating cake the chatting started. Some shared their long time experiences with Semper & some an anecdote. Since we are a big association it is good to meet in an informel way. So we can stay connected and get to know other family members & just have a good time together.
These year it was a special joy, that our friends from Asia joined and celebrated with us.
Spending this time together, was a special experience for all of us. We discovered how the different traditions in different cultures are. Even the people not knowing or celebrating Christmas, could see and feel the Christmas spirit, brought to them by all of us.
Semper Avanti wishes everyone a nice Christmas time & a wonderful start in the New Year!
