Branch Christmas Party

At this time of year in Poznan our days are pretty short. It starts getting dark around 3:30, and the mornings aren’t totally light until 8:00. The skies are usually gray and overcast during the winter. But in spite of all that, there is a lot of holiday joy going around among people. It’s a beautiful time of year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. We had a wonderful Branch Christmas party last night with a large group attending. Over half the group were visitors or investigators, thanks to our missionaries. We started the evening with a wonderful dinner of contributions from the people in attendance. We then sang Polish carols (very beautiful carols, we must say), followed by a “white elephant” gift exchange. The gift exchange brought a lot of laughter with each gift opened. There was such a warm spirit at this gathering, and everyone seemed to have a great time.

Most of the group as we enjoyed the meal. We had about 34 in attendance, which made the evening very festive.

Regina opened her gift and found a meat hammer. She's got great plans for this untensil!

Grzegorz received this fuzzy scarf, which brought the house down. He was in charge of the party set-up and did a great job.

We are sure this gift will be most useful!

These boys had a laugh out of their gifts - a gorgeous tie and a packet of tissue!
