Merry Christmas and a happy and successful new year!
We decided to take things a little easier on the last days of 2017, and to spend more time with our loved ones.
And because still too many people suffer from poverty and famine, we as the whole inPuncto team want to be socially engaged. As in previous years, we want to dispense with christmas presents and instead support social projects by Plan International Germany e.V. following the motto ‚meaningful presents’.
With a beautiful poem by E. E. Cummings we´d like to welcome the reflective and cheerful Christmas time.
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower
who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly
i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don’t be afraid
look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,
put up your little arms
and i’ll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won’t be a single place dark or unhappy
then when you’re quite dressed
you’ll stand in the window for everyone to see
and how they’ll stare!
oh but you’ll be very proud
and my little sister and i will take hands
and looking up at our beautiful tree
we’ll dance and sing
– E. E. Cummings
The whole inPuncto team would like to thank you for the trusting cooperation and wishes you and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year!
