This post is part of our reversed advent calendar action to surprise undocumented Amsterdammers with a Christmas dinner box.
Irene’s Christmas Pajama Party
Today it’s time to do some decorative Christmas gift hunting so that we can add a tiny Christmassy item to our Reversed Advent Calendar box. A glittering ornament, a wooden bead garland, or a lovely candle holder – let’s bring some cozy Christmas vibes into a fellow Amsterdammers’s home!
Also the ladies of the Wereldhuis are going on a trip to a Christmas market in Maastricht to do some Christmas shopping. For most of them, it will be the first time ever to stroll over a Christmas market, warm up with a Glühwein, the scent of fresh gingerbread and all the twinkling wooden market stalls.
I asked Irene: “Is there something particular you want to buy?” She gave a big smile: “I want to find a Christmas Pajama! I want to experience the real Christmas in Europe!” She continues that in Uganda Christmas is not that special: “You eat with each other and spend time together … but over here, all cities turn into a little Christmas wonderland. I have never experienced anything like this!”
So I said: “You need to wear your Christmas pajamas in front of a fireplace with a nice cup of warm chocolate milk next to a Christmas tree.”Her eyes grew even bigger: “That would be the best thing in the world! Can you do that?” “I can try! And we will organize a photoshoot so you’ll always remember. Plenty of people are reading this, there must be one person with a fireplace and a warm heart!”
So. If you have a fireplace and a Christmas tree or if you know someone who does: please let us know (email@example.com) and make Irene’s Christmas wish come true!
