Christmas is coming... This will be our Christmas aperitivo, and we have prepared a few things to get you in the Christmas mood. 

1. Please come in festive dress i.e. Santa hat,  reindeer antlers or just a bit of Christmas sparkle.   Enzo you must arrive in full Santa Claus attire.  

2. We will be organising Secret Santa.  If you would like to join in please bring a very small gift (something silly costing 2-5 euros) and make sure it is wrapped.  All the gifts will be put in Santa's sack, and at some point during the evening these presents will be given out (randomly and anonymously). You can only participate if you bring a gift! 

3.  An English Christmas surprise. 

4.  For those who don't live in Monza (and for those who do), it is a very pretty town and more so when with illuminated with festive lights.   If you are interested I would like to suggest that we meet outside Woody's at 7pm, then go for a walk around the town to take in the atmosphere before heading onto the aperitivo.  I will be outside Woody's at 7pm to meet anyone who would like to join me.

    Hi to everyone

    I write this note to remember that next month helen, our organizer should renew the biannual subscription to meet-up.
    As some of you already know we use the meet-up portal and organization to organize the events of "Monza English meet-up".
    This service require a biannual fee of about 70 $ and the next month it's time
    to renew this subscription.

    In order to split this cost the last time we asked to people available to
    support the meet-up initiative to subscribe a 5 euros fee to gather the required
    sum for the renewal of the subscription and I propose you to do the same think till now.
    To be more accurate, at a present time Helen still have some money left over from the last time so I 'm thinking that a littler contribution of 3 euros from about 10 people should be enough to achieve our target.

    So if you will support the meet-up please write a post here or simply contact me or Helen at the meet-up to give your contribute.

    Sincerely, Enzo

      Hi, I wanted to know if we bring a gift and came dressed with something about Christsmas as Helen wrote

      December 5, 2013

    • Enzo A.

      Why not Nadia ?
      Maybe we don't wear a full Christmas dress , but an hat or something like that is good.
      And also some funny and cheap presents to share with the others should be ok.

    What if I brought a gift bag with loads of gifts for the attendants? Can't wrap any gift, it could do my head in. Once I show up, I'll open up the bag and anybody could get his/her Christmas gift. It's a curious and somewhat odd gift, but I find it useful and commemorative, you won't do away with it anymore :)

      ok, maybe that you are allowed to bring some straw for the reindeer. After all the pub didn't have the straw in the list of its delicacies. :)

      I hinted that but we'd obviously ask the "rude" Woody crew for permission if we thought about it. What I'm saying is that we could broaden the little Woody offer with some typical Christmas cakes they don't usually serve. We would be served of a big spumante bottle by Woody as well, so they'd not have to complain to us about that. But this is up to the leader, she can make up her mind to the best she thinks. :)

    We could bring some panettoni with us if the Woody crew allowed
    us to do it. :)

    Gloria and I wanted to arrange a Midday Meetup at the Cimitero Monumentale in Milan soon, are we allowed to call for it on the Monza webpage? Many people looked intrigued last night, that's a big monumental site and it's gonna be interesting to have a tour there.

      Of course you can :). You need to find the tab on our page that leads you to suggested meet ups. You can add all the information about your proposed outing and it will generate an email to our members. If more that 3 members reply saying they will attend, it will be automatically scheduled as a definite event, and members can continue to RSVP their attendance.
