Soldiers, staff and their families were al invited for the headquarters first Multinational Winter Wonderland on 3 December at the Blücher Barracks. Also Santa Claus, his two angels and Saint Nicholas and his helpers were present at 1 GNC’s Christmas event.
The Staff Support Battalion had transformed the gymnasium into a real Christmas market with a big Christmas tree in the middle of the building. This was a perfect environment for the 13 nations within the headquarters to promote their respective Christmas traditions.

It was the first time 1 GNC’s Community Office together with the Staff Support Battalion organized this Multinational Winter Wonderland to celebrate Christmas with the Headquarters’ Staff and their families together. TV program WDR Lokalzeit Münsterland made an impression of the event.
