Nikolaus Party a Great Success

Democrats Abroad Berlin and friends celebrated the holiday season with their 2nd Annual Nikolaus Day party at the Allied Museum in Berlin. Thanks to all our members who joined us – it was a fun evening. And thanks to all the Friends of Dems who celebrated with us as well!

Special guests, ‘The Bees’ Knees’, treated us to a wonderful musical performance as an all female Barbershop Quartet doing a selection of holiday inspired tunes – you ladies are great, thanks for bringing added joy to our evening! 
And *extra* special guest, Bentley aka Mini-Weihnachtsmann, brought smiles and good cheer all evening
