Christmas and St Nicholas

December 6, 2016 was the date of the Christmas-get-together at the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research-UFZ. International scientists and their families had the chance to learn everything important to know about St Nicholas and to meet him in person. A mix of international food specialties was served, combined with music from the UFZ choir and some fun games.

On December 16, 2016 the residents of the Guest-House Werner-Heisenberg celebrated their Christmas party. The afternoon started with a cozy get together with typical Christmas Stollen, tea and coffee followed by singing of typical Christmas songs, sung in the individual language. Later a short visit from the North Pole the kids got their presents from Santa Claus in exchange for another Christmas Song. The highlight of the Christmas Party was a traditional German christmas dinner consisting of goose, red cabbage and dumplings.
