This year, the Campus Christmas Drive in Sankt Augustin will be extra special:
refugee children are cordially invited to hang cards carrying their Christmas wishes on the tree. Their wishes will be picked from the tree over the days that follow and fulfilled by the residents of Sankt Augustin and anyone else who wants.
Traditionally when the tree lights are switched on for the first time there is mulled wine, waffles and potato pancakes. There will also be small handicraft stalls from around the region to add to the festive atmosphere.
You can see pictures from the 2015 Campus Christmas here.
There will also be a lovely Christmas tree with decorations on the Rheinbach Campus. On 5 December refugee children will be invited to hang their wish lists on the tree in the hopes that their wishes come true.
