Austria, December 2019

Volunteers of Holosophic Society Austria prepared 40 Christmas cards with a contemplative saying and decorations for the large dining hall where the musical Advent afternoon took place. 

In the beginning everyone was invited to sing along and many did, especially for the most popular carols like “Stille Nacht.” Christmas stories and poems were read in between singing and the musical performances of our amateurs playing violin, guitars, electric piano, and percussion instruments.

At the end of the musical program, each resident received one of the prepared Christmas cards. Afterwards, snacks were served by the home’s management for all. The event was very well received and we were asked to come again.

A manager of the retirement home later wrote: “Thank you again for the wonderful Advent afternoon. It touched us very much in the heart how you designed it …”
