They full of wonderful smells like gingerbread, glazed candied apples, roasted apples, roasted cinnamon nuts, mulled wine, and warm apple cider. A mix of smells you will never forget once you have encountered it. It is heavenly.
Oh my, I do miss the Christmas markets. I have a few very special ornaments from Nuremburg (sp?)
The smells, the sounds, the people.
It was wonderful, like a dream.
Sounds awesome, I wish it was like that here, way to commercial! I hate that Christmas is jammed down our throats before Halloween is over!
I enjoyed reading about that. Thank you for taking the time to write it down!
I think I have always wanted-deep down in my heart- a day for eating nothing but jelly doughnuts.
Thanks for posting this. Its nice to hear how other people from all walks of life do things defferently round the world. I bought a book years ago how people celebrated christmas from round the world, also Saint days, Halloween, or devils day i think some places call it, and if I remember rightly how the Mexicans go to the graves of their loved ones to celebrate Halloween...someone correct me if Im wrong there please.
Do you guys do the christmas pickle thing too? (the ornament on the tree that you have to take turns trying to find)
That was a really great story, We need to remember to make Christmas special for our families and not get caught up in the commercialism.
Wow, I would love to visit Germany at Christmas time. My family has a lot of German roots, in fact their last name is Wilhite. I have always wanted to explore my roots more, and Germany has always interested me.
Thanks for sharing, you've made me want to visit that much more!
Thanks for sharing your Germany Christmas memories Katharina. Your story brought back my favorite childhood memories of Christmas in Germany as well.
Your memories of Christmas in Germany are wonderful --- thank you for sharing!
Our daughter, Liza, and her family lived in Germany twice -- the absolutely loved it -- her husband is Special Forces helicopter pilot and was often deployed while they were stationed in Germany --
Liza has always refused to live on an Army base -- in Germany she chose to live in a tiny village -- made lots of friends there -- they still keep in touch --
She loved the German Christmas but Easter was her favorite --
When I visited there she and I walked to the corner bakery to buy such fabulous pastries for breakfast -- good times!
Your memories of Christmas in Germany made me stop to remember my Christmases as a child in Georgia -- a 'deep South' Christmas was also special --
I hope Christmas 2010 will be a wonderful one for all of the BYC members!
