She had no time to sleep because she had to prepare for the Christmas party which (come) in two days. Which tense should I use? "came" or "would come" "or other tenses?

"She has no time to sleep because she has to prepare for the Christmas party which (come) in two days."
"comes" or "is coming (up)" or "will come" or others?
