Last night was the company Weihnachten Party here in Germany.
The party was held in the Jena Volkshaus or People’s House.
The Jena Volkshaus was opened in 1903 and was built by the Carl Zeiss Foundation.
I really like the grand staircase that goes up to the concert hall.
The large hall we were in is used for concerts and other events. It is also the home of the Jeaner Philharmonie orchestra.
In this picture you see a small orchestra. This orchestra is composed of company employees. They played a variety of music for us. They also provided music for dancing instructions that were party of the evening entertainment.
The pictures of the food are not so good because of the lighting in the room. The food was much better than it looks in the picture.
I enjoyed spending time with my colleagues at the party. I also got a little prize in a raffle. I will show of a picture of it sometime after I have used it.
Now for some sleep as I have to be up early to catch a train to the airport.
