Christmas party 2015

Christmas party 2015

On 27 December 2015, the Christmas party of the members of Lithuanians in Scotland Association (LISA) and their friends took place in The Lithuanian Scottish Social Club in Bellshill. Before the event, a mass in Lithuanian was held in St. Gabriel’s Church in Uddingston town, where the Word of God was read by LISA member Daina Bytautienė. Afterwards, Loreta Puišienė, member of LISA, started the party with a specially designed ice-breaker dance, which was followed by the official congratulatory speech of Chair of LISA Viktorija Macdonald.

The party then continued, where Christmas play “Rescuing the Sun” was joyfully improvised by LISA members and friends in line with the script developed by LISA members Daiva Ivanauskaitė, Loreta Puišienė ir Jūratė Piepolytė. After the play, children had a visit from a Scottish Santa who brought them Lithuanian books as presents, which reached Santa’s gift bag from the Lithuanian Publishers Association. Children together with Santa played traditional Lithuanian games, organized by Loreta Puišienė.


Throughout the entire event, an alluring smell rose from the Club kitchen, where a traditional Lithuanian potato pie was being baked. The culinary work was organized by Daina Bytautienė, upon request of Bellshill Lithuanian community members, who specifically requested the pie for this event.


To follow, the Community had a chance to see a Lithuanian animation film WOODS (dir. Ignas Meilūnas, 2015), which was awarded a national Lithuanian award of Silver Crane. The party’s music, photography and technical issues were taken care of by LISA member Marius Kliukas, whilst Andy Gunn made a video of the event. Thus, we are shortly expecting to share a short film of this community’s event with all participants and visitors to LISA website.


In this year’s Christmas party, we hosted 48 adults and 40 children. The number of LISA members increased by 16 new persons, the expectations of whom we hope to fulfill in 2016 by organizing interesting and interactive activities and events, suitable for all age groups of community members.


On behalf of LISA team, we would like to thank Justinas Slepavicius, Chair of Glasgow University’s Lithuanian Society, and his friend Milena Graužyte for a friendly visit to our event. We would also like to express special thanks to Harry Curran at Bellshill Club for providing LISA with premises for this Christmas party.


Once again, we would like to wish a Happy New Year to all Lithuanians residing in Scotland! Be healthy and happy!
