Hereditary Princess Sophie celebrated the 10th anniversary of Weihnachten in Schuhkarton in Liechtenstein in Triesen earlier this week. Literally meaning 'Christmas in a shoe box', the initiative collects shoe boxes filled with toys, sweets, clothes, school supplies and more in the German-speaking countries and gifts them to children in Eastern Europe and Asia. Many schools and kindergartens participate in the campaign that is internationally better known as 'Operation Christmas Child'. The Hereditary Princess is a patron of the initiative.
