On Christmas Eve, December 24, at 13:00, all Vantaa residents are warmly welcome to join Vantaa’s declaration of Christmas peace. As usual, the event will take place in front of Vantaa City Hall (Asematie 7).

Member of parliament and chair of Vantaa City Council Antti Lindtman will declare Christmas peace, and vicar Janne Silvast of Tikkurila Congregation will relay the congregation’s greetings.

After the Christmas Peace has been declared, soprano Krista Kujala and tenor Juhana Suninen from National Opera’s choir will sing Christmas carols. The singers will be accompanied by Jussi Miilunpalo.

The event — that lasts about half an hour — also has sign-language interpretation. Mulled wine will be served.

Vantaa Cultural Services and Tikkurila Congregation arrange the declaration of Christmas Peace in Vantaa.
