UIC 21st Annual Christmas Party

UIC 21st Annual Christmas Party




The 21st UIC Christmas Party is a family and friends event – couples, singles, internationals, Danes, children, youngsters, and seniors are all invited and welcome to attend. At this festive time of year, it is great to be among family - so join us, your international family!

Here in Denmark, Christmas is one of the biggest holidays and there are many festive traditions that go along with it. At our UIC Christmas Party we will introduce you to some of the most common customs, and together we will enjoy this wonderful afternoon with various activities that belongs to the Danish traditional Christmas day and eve. We encourage you all to come and participate, and will do our best to make a merry afternoon together with everyone.

Please note:
At the UIC we are open to people from all backgrounds and all cultures. Even if you do not follow the religious aspects of Christmas, this is an event just as much about socialising and having a lovely time with international friends as it is about the religious holiday itself. We encourage everyone who enjoys a warm and cosy atmosphere to attend!
