Christmas gathering brings together international students from different nationalities
On the 21st, international students gathered in Polytechnic of Leiria to celebrate Christmas. Given the fact that celebrating this holiday at home can be expensive, many international students decide to remain in campus during the holidays. Celebrating Christmas with other students and be able to share familiar traditions by cooking something representative of their country and culture was the purpose of the Polytechnic of Leiria when it decided to organize activities for students over the Christmas break. This was also a great chance for students to meet and greet and to celebrate Christmas far away from home but within a homely atmosphere! It was more like a multicultural community meeting than the typical family reunion, but was positively a Christmas to remember. There were games, music and traditional dishes from the Christmas season, in a spirit of celebration and friendship between the various nationalities and cultures. It’s beginning to feel a lot like holiday season!
The Polytechnic of Leiria wishes everyone a Happy New Year!
