Christmas Tea with Carol Singing
In keeping with tradition, an invitation to "Christmas Tea with Carol Singing" in the Residence of the US Ambassador in Dahlem was a special highlight for WiB members again this December.
Many accepted the invitation to the festively and tastefully decorated house, where they enjoyed the cheery and generous hospitality of Kimberley Emerson, the spouse of the Ambassador, and her daughters.
The hostess and the President of WiB stood in the receiving line; the guests then proceeded on to merry conversations and the enthusiastic singing of numerous American Christmas carols, accompanied professionally on the grand piano.
As the afternoon came to a close, one excited member expressed her sentiments, undoubtedly shared by others, too: "Great to sing carols together in this wonderful atmosphere - it makes us feel that Christmas is coming".
