First, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones health, happiness, peace and prosperity this Christmas and in the coming New Year.
The Dialogue Society believes in dialogue between members of different cultures and religions and as such would like to bring those members of the society together for a Christmas event. Knowing how important the season of Christmas is in British society in general and in the Christian faith in particular, we wanted to mark this time of celebration by inviting you to this special event. This invitation is open to all our friends, whatever their traditions and understandings of Christmas. We would be honoured to be shared with the spirit of this special season.
Last year, before all this started, we held our Christmas event as a Christmas Dinner at our community centre. Obviously, it will be different this year. Like every event that was held under these circumstances, this Christmas event will be held on the Zoom app. You will be able to join the event by clicking the link and entering the passcode at the scheduled time of the event. We aim to finish the event no later than 7:30 pm.
At this event, we want you to feel the spirit of Christmas and have as much fun as the technology allows us to. We will play games, have a Kahoot quiz contest, listen to some Christmas songs that are played with cultural instruments, listen to a guest speaker and watch some visual content. We also suggest that you wear Christmas-themed clothes and keep your camera turned on for a more live-like experience during the event if possible. Below are the details of the games we will play and what you need to have ready to take part in them.
First, we will play 3-minute gingerbread man design challenge. If you want to join this challenge, please have a gingerbread man base and your decoration materials ready. During the event, we will give you 3 minutes to design your gingerbread man and after that will ask you to show your gingerbread man to the camera. Then, all of the attendees will vote and choose the best gingerbread man design. The winner will get a surprise gift.
We will then play Bingo! but not with numbers. We will use a custom bingo card with a Christmas concept. The person to find the most number of matches will win a surprise gift.
Third, we will play paper plate drawing competition. To join this competition, all you need to have is a sturdy paper plate and a pen. We will give you instructions on how to play this game during the event. We will then tell you how to score your drawing. The player with the most points will receive a surprise gift.
Finally, we will have a Kahoot quiz. All you need to do is have a second device on hand in order to take part in the quiz. The winner will get a surprise gift.
These are the games that we will play during the event. You may choose which ones to take part in and ones to watch. However, we kindly invite everyone to participate in all of the games.
We would be delighted to have you at the event. I am attaching the invitation card for the details of the event. You may also forward this invitation to whoever you might think could be interested. We are looking forward to seeing you at the virtual event.
