First Christmas Ball at AUBGDecember 16, 2014
This past Friday, the first AUBG Christmas Ball was held at the sports hall of the America for Bulgaria Student Center. Organized by Student Government, the ball was greeted with enthusiasm, as AUBGers dressed in beautiful formal gowns and suits graced the spacious venue to partake of the delicious food and drinks and to loosen up before finals week.
Festive decorations, Christmas stars on the tables, holiday music, and soft lighting made the atmosphere enjoyable and perfect for pre-finals stress relief. The Ball also provided an opportunity for students to gather before the end of the semester and to celebrate in an “American-style.” “I really felt like in one of those movies where students get to their prom in the sports hall of the school. It was truly an enjoyable event,” shared one student enthusiastically.
Given the success of the event, students can only hope that it will become annual tradition allowing the AUBG community to celebrate the Christmas holidays and the end of the semester in a warm and jovial manner.
