German Festive Night in Dubai

This December celebrate Christmas the German way! Eton Institute, UAE’s largest training institute is hosting an enchanting cultural evening ‘German Festive Night’ highlighting the delights of Christmas in Germany, including German traditions, celebrations and delicious delicacies.

Not only is Germany credited with starting the tradition of the Christmas tree in the 16th century, but the Advent Calendar was also a German invention, originally designed to involve children in the festivities leading up to Christmas. Stollen, the oldest known German Christmas treat, and Christmas cookies (Plätzchen) are often baked during this time.

“With Christmas markets in tow, Germany is a sight at Christmas, all lit up and buzzing with activity during this time. Gingerbread houses, nativity scenes, hand-carved wooden Nutcracker figures (Nussknacker), Christmas pyramids (Weihnachtspyramiden), and lighted city streets and homes are all signs that Christmas is on its way,” commented Moaz Khan, Marketing Manager at Eton Institute.

Like all cultural events at Eton Institute, the German Festive Night will be an interactive evening where participants will experience the German food and traditions, sing Christmas songs and also get a chance to win exciting prices.

The German Festive Night will be held at Eton Institute, in Abu Dhabi and in Dubai as follows:

Abu Dhabi: 19th December, 7 PM – 9 PM

Dubai: 19th December, 6.30 – 8.30 PM
