JSSK & SWEA Christmas Party

On Dec 10th we had a very successful Christmas Party at the Kobe Club. The format was the same as last year’s “Julfest”. All arrangements made by SWEA alone! A big THANK YOU to all of you and the support from the JSSK Office at HIA.

After a welcome by JSSK MD Åke Nilsson we were greeted by the new Swedish Ambassador to Japan H.E. Stefan Noreén who joined the party with his wife Grazyna. Hyogo Pref. Vice Governor Saito held a much appreciated speech on behalf of Gov. Ido. We were also honored by the presence of Honorary Consul Wada.

A total of more than 130 guests, of which about 30 children, enjoyed the relaxed party atmosphere with Swedish Glögg, Lucia buns, ginger cookies and, of course, the Lucia train. Lucia this year was Vilde Kvålsvold accompanied by Junior Lucia Isabel Pettersson. Solo singer during the performance was Philip Lindell.

At the “fish pond” (painted by children before the party) Santa Claus, Lars Bergman, helped the children getting something on the hook after which followed some competition, dance around the Christmas Tree, the Snake Dance lead by Santa Claus and finally The Rocket. A lot of fun for the young ones and all other participants.
