Christmas is one of my favourite festivals. The annual festival which is celebrated on 25h December every year. The rituals of this festive season of exchanging gifts and traditional meals with one’s family are pretty amazing. It is majorly celebrated by Christians but now it is also observed by non-Christians.
Goethe-Institut or Max Mueller, located on Kasturba Gandhi Marg celebrated Christmas in all its glory. The institute which is located worldwide is famous for promoting their German culture and teaching the German language. Keeping their culture alive, Max Mueller is also encouraging international cultural exchange.
The Christmas celebration at Max Mueller was a lot of fun over good food and sangria. Getting clicked with the Weihnachtsbaum while wearing crazy props was absolutely fantastic. The Christmas tree stood outside, opposite the library with beautiful decorations hanging from it. The celebrations at the institute were filled with fun and enthusiasm. The 3-day event was celebrated with the students and bloggers. They all also got the chance to win exciting goodie bags b taking selfies with the Christmas tree and posting it online with the hashtag ##baumselfiegoethe. The Director of the Institute and his team talked about the German Culture and gave us an overview of their Institute. The fun interactive session was followed by eating delicious food which was sponsored by Capsule. The most awaited part of the day was the Christmas cakes which included chocolate truffles and tarts. The end of Christmas celebrations leaves us wanting for more. We hope to celebrate this festival with equal enthusiasm and happiness with the Goethe Institut next year as it has left us with some amazing memories.
