Join us for a special early Christmas Celebration Saturday, 29 November 2014

Some of us can’t wait for Christmas Eve, but we shouldn´t forget the cosy pre-Christmas time: Having some “Glühwein” with friends after strolling around the Dresden Christmas markets, trying the typical sweet tibits the bakeries offer during Christmas time and counting down the days with coffee and cake each Sunday of advent while lighting a new candle.

But the most important thing is to celebrate Christmas with the people you like. Therefore the Welcome Center would love to invite you to our Christmas Celebration on Saturday, November 29. Cooky baking takes place at 2.30 p.m., hand-crafting with paper at 4 p.m. and around 5 p.m. we are going to sing Christmas carols and listen to Christmas stories.

Of course we will also have our own Santa Clause. For not letting him come empty-handed, we again will arrange a “Secret Santa” activity: Everybody is asked to bring an article, ornament, or household utensil that is no longer wanted by its owner. If you have nothing to spare, it would be sufficient to buy some sweets for not more than 5€. Please keep in mind that your little present should be wrapped nicely. You´ll be surprised when you find something that turns out to sweeten your day!

We also would like to invite you to share Christmas or likewise celebrations in your country. If you are interested in telling us about your traditions – 5 till 10 minutes would be fine – please let us know by e-mail and we will put you on the agenda.

As it would be very sad running out of dough, papers or presents we’d be very happy if you take a minute and register here:
