Our Cosmo Christmas season began, as always, with our Advent tea, this year on Nov.23. Once again, we were spoiled with lots of homemade goodies, both sweet and savory. In fact, since our group was a bit smaller this year, we even had plenty to take home with us. 16 members attended, we collected € 170 for our chosen charity: HöViLand, a summer camp for less-privileged children in Cologne. We had time to chat with all the members, which isn‘t always the case if the group is too big. So, the Christmas season has begun, and we can look forward to our Christmas lunch on Dec. 7.
