Traditional Christmas celebration and Christmas porridge for staff

Christmas celebration

Welcome to the traditional Christmas celebration and Christmas porridge on 14.12.

Christmas will be upon us soon. That means it is time for JYU’s traditional Christmas celebration and rice porridge. Come take a breather after the busy autumn and celebrate the nearing of Christmas at the staff’s joint Christmas celebration on Thursday 14 December in the Main Building. The Rector will be there, too.

We will meet in the lobby of the Main Building at 11 a.m. for some glögi, and the programme in the festival hall will begin at 11.30. We will hear Rector Keijo Hämäläinen’s opening remarks and a performance from the choir Sentimento. There will also be a singalong. Staff from the Open Science Centre will lead this year’s classic Finnish Christmastime performance of Tiernapojat, and Santa will also be there with surprise presents. The programme also includes an award ceremony for the Jyväskylä University Foundation’s awards for community spirit building.
Bring your Christmas spirit, or come get it here!
Register in Korppi by 7 December
