Another year is almost over and it's time to get into the Christmas spirit again. As has become tradition, the ECCT will be the first to celebrate Christmas with a festive feast, music and Christmas goodies.
Back by popular demand, this year's lunch reception will start off with warm mulled wine (known as "Glühwein" to Germans & Austrians or "Glögg" in Scandinavian countries). This will be followed by a feast featuring some of the best European festive fare. The main course will be traditional European style roast turkey with roast potatoes, accompanied by a signature dessert from the Michelin 3-star Le Palais restaurant.
In keeping with tradition, guests will be entertained by a performance of the Taipei European School's angelic children's choir, who will sing Christmas carols. Later, Santa will drop in from Lapland for a pre-Christmas visit. He’ll be bringing a sack full of Christmas gifts for the children.
They say that it is better to give than to receive. In this generous spirit of Christmas, we will be having a gift exchange for guests. We encourage all guests to bring along a wrapped gift. While we don't want to discourage generosity, please don't be too generous (the value of gifts should be around NT$500).
Members are encouraged to bring along their spouses, partners, friends and colleagues to join in the fun. Don’t miss this, the most festive of Christmas parties that is sure to keep you in the Christmas spirit all the way until Christmas.
