About the project

  • Welcome to our Christmas project.



    “Christmas lights, Christmas bells hanging on the tree, 
    I’ll send you a Christmas card if you send one to me” 

    We want to share this Christmas feeling by exchanging handmade cards and good wishes written in English with every school participating in the project. The students will make Christmas cards using various techniques and send them to all partner schools by traditional mail. 


    This is the sixth edition of the project.



    We are from a number of countries around Europe: Poland,  Estonia, Portugal, Lithuania, Romania, Madeira - Portugal, Turkey, Latvia, Bulgaria, Italy, Tenerife - Spain, Spain, Slovakia, Croatia.


    To send and receive Christmas cards; to share the unique Christmas feeling and bless others with good wishes; to open up our minds and use English to communicate with new friends; to expand students’ cultural and geographical knowledge; to find out about Christmas traditions in other countries.
