It’s that time of year again! Stores are playing Christmas songs on repeat, the department stores have decked their halls and their exteriors with elaborate decorations, and the expat bars are gearing up for some Festive Yule Cheer.
Before you head out for some Christmas spirits of the alcoholic variety, check out this Charity Concert for Children that dips into the true Spirit of Christmas. “The concert is to raise awareness and funds for the Good Children Foundation to continue supporting the needs of the low-income, single-parent, and multi-cultural families in Ulsan. This month the foundation began sponsoring a center in Uljugun that was facing closure. For more information contact Kevin at 010-2452-1355.” The concert will be held at the Hanbit Church in Mugeodong. The concert runs from 7-8:30 pm, on Saturday, December 21st.
Since Christmas is on a Wednesday this year, it seems that Saturday, December 21st is the night to be out on the town, if you’re looking for a party!

“We want you to come as if Christmas threw up on you. I’m talking ugly sweaters, battery powered lights, mistletoe, tinsel, reindeer headbands, the whole nine. People who are MOST inspired by the holiday spirit will be rewarded generously with free booze.
We are still awaiting word on one other bands, but that night we will have performances by Second Flash, The Pyramid Scheme and The Elsewheres who will be making their long awaited return performance at Anchor. It’s going to be a party that will make Santa emotional and give Frosty some hot flashes, so come join in the holiday cheer!”
On Christmas Eve (Dec 24th for those who may not be familiar with the holiday), JJ’s Bar will be hosting a quiet evening. ”After Royal Anchor’s party on the 21st we are going to pull the reins on Rudolph a bit and have a chill Christmas Party on the eve. We’ll be playing Christmas movies all night. We’ll also be serving White Russians and Egg Nog cocktails for 5,000 each. At midnight we’ll be having a white elephant gift challenge, which, if you’re interested in, you need to send me (Patrick) a message. We are limiting the gift purchase to just ₩10,000.
