Commissioner Hahn participated in the arrival of the "Peace Light" at the European Commission together with Josef Pühringer, Governor of the Land of Upper Austria. The "Peace Child" for the 2013 edition was Michael Weixlbaumer.

The Peace Light is an initiative launched in 1986 by the Austrian radio ORF Landesstudio Oberösterreich and remembers the true meaning of Christmas. An Austrian child lights a candle in the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. This light is then transported to Austria and to more than 25 European and non-European countries.
