Irish Hungarian Business Circle Göd Xmas Trip

December 6th is generally when Mikulás drops by your home and delivers gifts and so he did, much to the delight of everyone there.

This was also a day for showcasing the orphanage’s new sound system in operation, donated from the proceeds of the IHBC’s Give a Little campaign. And with thanks to two local musicians, everybody joined in singing both Hungarian and English Christmas songs, now that the season is upon us.

This brought a big smile to everyone and an even bigger one, when Mikulás began his walkabout, handing out Christmas presents to the residents.

Over the years the IHBC has made a telling contribution to this orphanage. There is nothing more satisfying than to see these people who live there and who are not as fortunate as some, cheering, singing, and smiling.
