CERN Accelerating science

Father Christmas came to CERN on Saturday, 2 December!

Every year, ever since its creation, the Staff Association has organised the CERN Children’s Christmas Party, bringing together 5- to 7-year-old children of employed members of the personnel. The success of the party continues to motivate the organizers of the Staff Association.

This year, the party took place on Saturday, 2 December, and no less than 240 children were welcomed in two sessions, at 13.30 and at 15.30. The children attended a show with music, tales and a speaking puppet: “Zéphirine et les légendes de Noël”.

After the show, they enjoyed a snack in Restaurant 1. We would like to thank Novae for their valuable help and generous contribution.

Then, Father Christmas himself came to give the children their presents. The Staff Association would also like to warmly thank him for taking the time to bring happiness and joy to little ones and big ones alike during the busy season!

We would also like to thank all the parents for their valuable collaboration.

Finally, we wish you all happy holidays and look forward to seeing you next year!
