In my community there is for many years the compaign 'Christmas window’. 24 times, a window will be suitable decorated for the Christmas season. Punch and mulled wine are served, sandwiches and biscuits are offered and the neighbors and community members are invited to stay, listen to contemplative texts (presented by the pastor himself or by parish volunteers) and have some fun. Any voluntary donation is collected in a fund and if necessary will be given to community members in need. The 24th window is always hosted by our church and school and city hall have a window too. But for all other december days you can register. This year we were number 14. I made my window very simple, decorated with Christmas tree balls, which I got as gift from my girlfriend, but they were too big for the Christmas tree.
In unserer Hauseinfahrt haben wir dann heiße Getränke und Snacks angeboten. Schön war's!
In our hallway/driveway, we offered hot drinks and snacks. It was great!
