The Dragon's Head Blog: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Wishes from Poland
The magic of the Christmas Eve evening last Friday at the Wrocław club slowed down time. There were 30 people sitting at the tables, piled high with home-made delicacies. Traditionally, the president greeted all of the members with warm wishes and sharing the holy wafer. These are the most touching moments in which our hearts open and soften.
Then there was the time to taste traditional Polish Christmas dishes – delicious dumplings, herrings, salads and sweets. Singing Christmas carols (accompanied on piano by our member, Pawel, and his wife, Patrycja’s angelic voice) enhanced the festive mood and impressed with even greater magic.
We also had a very special guest that evening: a monkey from Florida, who travels around the world and visits our clubs.
We closed the evening with a fundraising activity: a Christmas auction of the hand-made decorations. The amount we raised will support students of the special needs center in Wrocław, the place where we have donated money and helped for over 20 years.
We wish all the members and participants around the world a merry and magical Christmas and Happy New Year!
