Getting into the Christmassy mood on St. Nicholas Day, this year's Christmas celebration took place on 6 December 2019. WiB members from Berlin and various corners of the world came with their families, parents and children to the Weberbank Villa in Berlin-Wilmersdorf to celebrate Christmas together. Homemade pastries, delicious mulled wine and a big beautifully decorated Christmas tree added to the festive atmosphere. The members and the Executive Board members recited some poems that made the afternoon a special experience. However, the highlight for everyone was the Christmas carols. Whether it was "Oh Tannenbaum" or "Oh Christmas tree”, they were sung alternately in German and English so that everyone could sing along and enjoyed these Christmas classics. Such a cosy start of the holiday season!
