Düsseldorf Expat Christmas Meetup! Wednesday 12th December : O'Reillys Irish Bar














Hello folks! How are you all?

**** New date!! Wednesday 12th December 2012 ********

Final countdown to Christmas, the Weihnachtsmarkt or traditional Christmas Market is in full swing around Düsseldorf and in every other town and city around Germany - it is a good time to be here  If this is your first Weinachtsmarkt in Germany enjoy it while you can. It will be over too soon, the last day will be 23rd December.

This message is, of course, about the last Düsseldorf Expat Meetup for 2012. The new date is Wednesday 12th December 2012, please make a note in your calenders! The reason for the switch from the traditional day of our meetup is during the third week of December most people will start their holidays, thus the decision to bring the event one week forward so you have a better chance to meet people and catch up with friends one last time before Christmas

The time may have changed but the location has not - as is tradition we will be there from 8pm at O'Reilly's Irish Bar, Marktplatz, Altstadt. If you are joining us for the first time we look forward to seeing you and giving you a warm welcome! If you are not sure where to find us when you arrive look for us upstairs around the bar. We are usually a large group, we should be easy to find but feel free to ask any of the organizers or the staff at O'Reilly's if you need help. If you are new to Germany and Düsseldorf we hope you find this event an excellent opportunity to meet people and look forward to joining us again in the New Year! Welcome to Düsseldorf & Germany, hope you can join us!

If you are a regular member we look forward to seeing you once more before the Christmas break! Any opportunity for a meetup, especially before we start travelling, should not be missed and we hope you can join us! Thank you very much for your continued support this year and previous years giving all new members a warm welcome, we very much appreciate your great help & contribution!

The staff at O'Reilly's would also like to organize something special to say 'Merry Christmas!' and thank all members for their continued support this year. All of us would like to give our sincere gratitude and huge thanks to Danny and all staff at O'Reilly's for supporting us through all meetups in 2012 and all previous meetups since we first started. Look forward to seeing all staff in January 2013!

As for the New Year what can you and all members look forward to? Of course the traditional third Thursday meetups will continue, we are now into our 6th year  We plan to try something new for 2013, it will be announced through our Facebook page and website once everything is in place. The following year will be exciting!

However one change has already happened - a new member has joined our organizing team! Bart Hertogh joined the team last month, from Holland and living in Germany for over two years  He will be helping us organize events for 2013 and to support new and regular members who join us, we would like to give Bart a warm welcome! You will meet him at the meetup next week.

Maybe you have enjoyed an exciting year full of change with high hopes it will continue. Perhaps you experienced a difficult year with exhausting challenges and looking for a full reboot 1st January. Whichever way your year has turned out, all of us at Düsseldorf Expat Meetup would like to wish you, friends and family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Wish you all every success and happiness for 2013, we look forward to seeing you again soon!

There will be an update later this week for the meetup next Wednesday, wish you all a great week!

All the best, Duesseldorf Expat Meetup.
