Bamberg Buddies Holiday E-Card Exchange

Usually, the holidays are a time of coming together and meeting with friends and loved ones. This year, Bamberg Buddies is providing a chance for interested students to share the holiday spirit virtually by sending each other friendly holiday E-Cards. 

With your E-Card, you are welcome to send a holiday anecdote, a poem, or other ways to make another person’s holidays a little less cold and distant. And you will, of course, receive such a card from someone else! In any case, we from the American Studies Team in Bamberg challenge all participants to please include a quote from their favorite book from 2020, in order to not only share the holiday spirit, but also our love for a good book! 

Interested students, please sign up by sending an e-mail to bambergbuddies.amerikanistik(at) with your university student e-mail address until December 10, 2020. You will get an e-mail with the name of the person to whom you will be sending an E-Card. Please send your card by December 15, 2020

Additionally, on December 17, 2020 (7 p.m.), the Bamberg Buddies Team will be organizing a special holiday meet-up/festive game night on MS Teams, where you can meet your E-Card Buddies screen-to-screen for some more holiday-related activities. 
We are looking forward to spreading some holiday joy with you!
