Spearheaded by the new Speaker, Szymon Hołownia, this event is part of a broader plan to enhance the image of the chamber and make it a more inclusive space.

The Christmas Eve celebration will actually take place today, rather than tomorrow, in the grandeur of the Column Hall, the largest space in parliament outside the plenary chamber.

The Sejm, recognizing its role as a public institution, aims to embrace the community and foster a sense of belonging among citizens, posting on social media: "We want the Sejm to be an open place for citizens, and for people to feel that it is their place. The government has the greatest obligations towards people who have it the hardest." This sentiment reflects a commitment to extend a helping hand to those facing challenges in their lives.

The parliamentary catering service will provide a festive spread for the occasion, ensuring a delightful Christmas meal for all attendees. The event's capacity will be limited to the Column Hall's size, accommodating several hundred guests to maintain an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.
