Christmas is around the corner! Also, this year we want that LOVE rules and not mass consumption because we don’t like how Christmas has become a holiday of intense materialism, superficial gift-exchanging & feasting and less about family gatherings, hope and giving back. If you also think it’s time to put an end to the mindless holiday consumerism, then join our “Give a Present Christmas Market” @ Zarah on December 11th. Get special gifts such as self-made jewelry, skincare / zero-waste products, handmade soaps, cards & illustrations, vegan cakes, delicious nut butters, Tibetan candies and many other special DIY handicrafts and support local businesses at the same time. If you are advocating a totally gift-free Christmas, then still come and don’t buy any presents but “give” presents to children in need. Also, this year we will collect gifts under our beautiful Christmas Tree which will be sent to the Beijing-based NGO “Migrant Children Foundation” (MCF) that aims to help disadvantaged children from migrant workers’ families in Beijing. Come and enjoy some freshly baked Christmas Cookies, German Lebkuchen and homemade waffles, while the lovely scent of roasted almonds and our secret recipe Gluehwine will fill the air. Let’s celebrate kindness, charity and support or simply Christmas in the most sincere way!
