The Aegeri Advent Window Project

2021 was again a year of plans changing and hopes of being with family disappeared.  We decided we needed to bring a bit of joy back to our holiday and take advantage of the fantastic community we live in by creating the first annual  Aegeri ADVENT WINDOWS project.  

 

Each day a member of our community created a special Advent Window.  The window decoration varied from window to window but each was super special in their own way.  Some hosts even offered outside open houses where neighbors gathered sharing hot drinks, Christmas cookies and/or mince pies.  It was truly special.

 

Thank you to all the families and business who made this possible.  We look forward the 2nd Annual Advent window event.

FAMILIES RECEVE A BAG OF CHRISTMAS COOKIES

Lindengasse 2, 6314 Unteraegeri

Visible from the inner courtyard, its the green building

The inspiration for the window:
"I was reminded for this Christmas season, that Jesus attracted people from all walks of life, wise men (our days maybe called academics), lowly shepherds, later in life simple fishermen, powerful business women, etc. These days, there is much potential for division but the Christmas season can remind us to unite on those things that we have in common."
