Shortly before the first Advent Sunday, the Catholic university community of LMU Munich "Leo 11" met in a rather unconventional way this time to get in the mood for Advent. The planned Advent wreath-building took place on the internet, but still allowed for a lively exchange and Christmas spirit with biscuits. On Wednesday, the students were able to pick up materials from Father Holger Adler SJ throughout the day and then gathered in front of their computers on Thursday evening.

The idea for a joint Advent wreath-building event in the KHG had already arisen in the midsummer temperatures on the KHG planning day. "Unfortunately, we couldn't meet in the cafeteria as originally planned and get creative together with mulled wine, gingerbread and Christmas music. But we didn't want to let that stop us from getting in the mood for Advent. No reason for us to call the whole thing off! Sometimes you just have to make the best of the situation!" This is the enthusiastic report of the two students Julia and Theresa, who took part in the action on Thursday.

On Wednesday, they were able to pick up wreath blanks, candles, fir branches, wire and all kinds of decorative materials at the KHG, before they started tying the wreaths on Thursday evening. With punch and nice conversations, an Advent atmosphere arose and the evening flew by. Barely 2 hours later, the first of the 17 Advent wreaths created were proudly presented to the others via the camera. "Thanks to Zoom, we were still able to enjoy the event together.
