    ICE 12<span class=”chinese”>月</span>22<span class=”chinese”>日活动</span>:<span class=”chinese”>感恩圣诞</span>

    ICE is about “Breaking the Ice between cultures” and about a true cross-cultural exchange.

    ICE is a FREE to join organization with NO membership dues! We are inclusive and welcome participants from all nationalities, ethnicities and religions, regardless of Chinese or foreign, regardless of businesspersons or students and regardless if the participant will be short-term or long-term in Chengdu or Sichuan.

    Our intention is events will be a short presentation from some nationality to speak on some aspect of their culture, answer questions and possibly even give a demonstration of some particular aspect of their culture such as music, dance, art, crafts, food, history, philosophy, architecture, etc.

    We do NOT intend for this to be a “One-way street” that is only all about Chinese culture. We hope to alternate the monthly events between different cultures from volunteers among ICE members or guest speakers or presenters we identify outside the ICE membership. We also welcome ICE members, or others, will suggest topics of interest or even recommend guest presenters.

    Please join us Sunday December 22, 2013 2-4pm for the FREE ICE Christmas Event!

    Christmas is the most recognized worldwide holiday. It’s celebrated not only by the over two billion Christians for its religious aspect, but even more so for its festive secular aspect. Santa Claus, Christmas trees, elves and festivities mark the season.

    However, what is largely forgotten in the Christmas season is the universal message and meaning of Christmas… Forgiveness, Hope and Peace in the world for ALL mankind. ALL these are ideals that everyone can embrace regardless of religion, nationality or ethnicity. So, what is Forgiveness?

    We are indeed fortunate to have Terrance Thomas join us to speak on Forgiveness. Terrance is the author of “We Must Fail to Succeed” and has become well-known in Chengdu through teaching, powerful motivational speaking and performing as a DJ in various local nightclubs. I’m confident Terrance will talk about all the aspects of Forgiveness and more in his jovial and most entertaining way!

    Oh…did I forget to mention? There will be lots of tasty food and we request all attendees contribute by bringing a food dish, snack, dessert or special beverage (Dutch treat or AA) preferably from your culture if possible. Alternatively, you can bring some small inexpensive gift to be given away in the question and answer session after Terrance’s presentation.

    Of course there will be time after Terrance’s presentation to mix, mingle, meet old friends and hopefully meet some new friends. Let’s all have fun and celebrate the Christmas season!

    The venue for the event will be our sponsors beautiful showroom and offices. The Sichuan Interior Decoration and Design (SIDDA) is conveniently located on the Fifth Floor (518-521), No. 396 Middle Section of Tianfu Avenue, Chengdu Art Exhibition Center, Metro Line 1, Century City Station, Exit A.

    The facility may either be accessed by Exit A, or by proceeding past Exit A underground directly into the Art Exhibition Center. If you want to take a taxi, the address is <span class=”chinese”>世纪城地铁站</span>. There is also ample convenient surface or underground car parking available.
