The 3rd of February was the reasonable time for finally having our late Christmas party. It was a little over deadline, but that’s mostly how we tend to do things. Better late than never, right?!
Anyway over a quite long period of time people arrived to the farm of Rätsepa and after the board had held their Christmas-speech, the group of approximately two dozen mechanical students got to enjoy the good and the better. Then it was time for the traditional Mehvillak- the game that has not been missing from any of our first of now second annual Christmas meetings. The teams could shine in topics like the prices of weird things in shops including in our own Tipikas store. Also there are no reasons why any of us wouldn’t succeed in being a barman or an actor. Also the knowledge in corded ware was higher than expected.
After a quick ending to the Mehvillak it was time to raise the density of the population at least to five persons per square-meter in hot sauna. It took several hours and armfuls of hissing wood, before the decision of driving to get some dry wood was brought to life, so we wouldn’t have to blow on each other and ourselves to get some warmth.
Around midnight, when the full-moon had risen the village-cats were meowing and the dogs were barking. The wind blew and the spruces swayed in a pretty weird way, but that’s irrelevant, because then came the santa-clause! In order to redeem the mostly self-made gifts, that everybody enjoyed, we had to complete simple tasks. Some people got their warpaint to feel safer and braver in the then again hot sauna. The dancing and celebrating was carried on until not anymore late morning-hours, when after at least a little bit of sleep it was time to start with the meeting. The meeting was short and concrete as expected and shortly after that we showed our skills in posing for a group-shot and speed-cleaning. That’s how the Christmas is over for this year again.
A big thanks to Rainer, who arranged this fun weekend with the help of Karl and Karl. Christmas is a time of peace- a merry and peaceful Christmastime to all mechanics...in February!
