Santa and his helpers have done their best to ring in the holidays at the following three locations: Paard van Troje, Paard Café and Club LUX. Doors will be open at 23 hours.
Cookies & Candy Canes THUAS
With the help of our lovely helpers from Interaccess, students will have the opportunity to put a smile on their friends’ faces by sending them cookies and candy canes. Sign online by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Candy & Canes’ for free. Surprise a friend or loved one from The Hague University of Applied Sciences. The cookies & canes will be handed out on the 5th of December by Sinterklaas.
Mistletoe & Kissing Managers
What would XXL-MAS be without a mistletoe kissing spot? Well, in the spirit of spreading love, you have the opportunity to take a nice picture while giving your loved one a kiss underneath the mistletoe! According to the Norse tradition, refusing a kiss underneath the mistletoe is bad luck! You can find the Kissing Spot inside the Atrium of THUAS and of Inholland (see picture).
Do you remember singing Christmas carols as a kid? On Monday, December 17 from 12 – 13 h, we have musical duo Musici, who are members of Royal Conservatoire The Hague. They will sing classic Christmas songs for students at Inholland! Come and listen to your Christmas favorites!
HEBOS and friends
In collaboration with HEBOS there will be carol singing on the 13th of December. Next to the smooth sounds of Joost, HEBOS is going to hand hot drinks, snacks as well as Christmas hats! Make sure to look out for our HEBOS elves between 10 to 13 h.
Christmas Present Tower
Do you remember how excited you were as a child once you saw a pile of wrapped Christmas presents? To help you reminisce and this year’s theme, we will have wrapped Christmas presents in the Atrium of THUAS as well as Inholland, be sure to take a picture and post it with the hashtag #XXLMAS! We hope this season has you wrapped up in happiness!
Christmas Card picture
Sometimes the closest people to you live far away or you won’t be able to return home for the holidays. Don’t worry, you are still able to send them warm wishes by taking a classic Christmas card picture! We have props and Christmas clothes ready for you, so you can personalize your own card! (date: December 14, time, 12 – 14, Atrium).
