Holidays Around the World
Text by Claire Zamarreno and Azura Rubio.
The BCT held its annual year-end party recently. “Holidays Around the World” took place at the Launch Labs in Basel Stadt. The event provided a chance for families to catch up at the start of the current festive season.
It was lovely to see various BCT members there.
The volunteers outdid themselves. There were numerous exciting booths representing nine countries. Consequently, the guests could enjoy going around the world. Especially the children who got their special passports stamped at each station.
Additionally, there were exciting craft projects to complete and varying traditions to learn.
All were welcome to try festive Swiss refreshments.
The BCT feels fortunate to have such a diverse group of families willing to share their traditions and customary holidays at the year-end party.
Moreover, to receive a visit from a special guest at the event.
Surprise! Santa took time out from his busy North Pole to come and hand out goodie bags to the children.
Merci, Danke, Gracias, Spasibo, Shukran, Dhanyavaad, Toda, and Thank You.
And all the fabulous volunteers who set up their unique stalls and assisted at the event.
