Christmas Week

christmas week final

The Universalis Christmas Week was introduced for the first time in December 2013. For one week in December, usually the week before the exams, the Universalis Board, in cooperation with as many committees as possible, will organize events during the days and in the evenings.

This year, the week started off with the annual Christmas Karaoke organized by the Music Committee. Students could sit on the couches, drink beer and listen to their fellow students singing “Last Christmas” yet another time or even get on the stage themselves and perform their version of their favorite Christmas Song. As always, girlbands and boygroups were formed later in the evening, including staff members, alumni and tutors.

On Tuesday, the Arts and Photo Committee set up a table with decorations and blank Christmas ornaments to decorate in the breaks. The results were sparkly, personalized ornaments in every color possible that were used to decorate Universalis’ Christmas tree. In the evening, the Universalis Board members served Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows while the students listened to self-written and famous Christmas Tales. The Bell writers as well as vice-dean Teun Dekker and later on any student could sit down in the armchair, put on the Christmas hat and entertain the common room with poems, theatrical improvisation or childhood Christmas memories.

On the third day of Christmas Week, the gastronomy society organized a Gingerbread House competition. In all breaks, students could build and decorate their own personal Gingerbread House that were later on voted upon by students. By the end of the day, around 20 different Gingerbread Houses filled the common room with a Christmassy flair. In the afternoon, around 30 students met at Maastricht’s Central Station to take the Bus to Aachen for a visit of its famous Christmas Market. Universalis’ Excursion Committee provided the transportation tickets as well as a free Gluehwein for each student. Students who did not have enough Christmas spirit for the day could return to UCM, where the party committee organized a slumber party with snacks and a screening of Home Alone.

Christmas Week was completed with one of the Charity committee’s famous bake sales. In the 1pm break, students could taste as many self-made cakes as possible and then decide on the winner. In the evening, the Universalis Board hosted the annual Christmas Soiree. The Common Room was transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with two Christmas trees, candles and a gingerbread display. A lovely Christmas themed dinner was then served by Cato by Cato, followed by a concert by our very own UCM choir. This was topped off by Gluehwein and hot chocolate, to be enjoyed by a fire in the courtyard. A lovely end to a lovely week.
