Christmas is a very special holiday not only in Germany but all over the world. It’s such a special time of year and the magic atmosphere of December and the holiday season gets to everyone.
This book will take you on a journey through many German Christmas traditions filled with happy childhood memories.
Learn about longstanding traditions and customs like decorating your home, baking cookies (Weihnachtsplätzchen) and visiting the Christmas markets from someone who was born and raised in Germany.
How do German children celebrate St. Nicholas Day? Who brings the Christmas gifts and when? What are the favorite Christmas ornaments and decorations in Germany? What dishes are eaten? These and many more questions will be answered in a very personal way.
The author even included three of her favorite Christmas cookie recipes for you to bake.
For the version 2014 I added two more recipes for Christmas drinks and easy instructions how to make your own Christmas decorations.
