Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Marion Kummerow was born and raised in Germany, before she set out to "discover the world" and lived in various countries. In 1999 she returned to Germany and settled down in Munich where she's now living with her family. In 2004 she and her husband started the website www.inside-munich.com, in order to show the beauties of Munich to foreign visitors. Her guide books about Munich and Germany come from the heart and give insights into the local life.

It is from these traditions, rather than French or Italian traditions, that British and American Christmas traditions evolved, as a direct result of Queen Victoria marrying Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg. Albert taught Victoria about the German Christmas tree, and many other marvellous traditions that were immediately popularised and became what most English-speaking people think of as the real spirit of Christmas.
Marion Kummerow explains these long-established German traditions, illustrating them, and encouraging us to understand and enjoy them – and, perhaps, to visit Bavaria and experience this version of Christmas in the snow, with gingerbread, mulled wine, carved wooden nativity figures, and so much more.
I have spent Christmas, twice, with my family in snowy Oberammergau, and visited it several times in summer.
I have visited snowy Rothenburg in Advent, and seen the beautiful Christmas markets, and heard the carol singers, and the brass bands playing carols, and the recorder groups. I have explored Kathe Wohlfhardt's magical shop, and read Wilhelm Wohlfhardt's excellent autobiography.
I grew up, in Australia, with the local traditions of Christmas inspired by the German traditions taken to Britain by Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg, husband of Queen Victoria.
Encountering the beauties of German Advent markets and the traditions of Christmas, when I first visited Germany, was like coming home.
This book is an excellent introduction to a magical world, and we understand Christmas better by knowing and celebrating these traditions.

The book goes through the all the German Christmas traditions and takes you to another world where a traditional Christmas is still alive and well. I had been to German Christmas markets before, but there were certainly things in this book that I didn't know about! For example, Barbarazweig (the tradition of bringing in a special branch from a tree to bloom on Christmas Eve).
It was fun to learn what German Christmas traditions are. I think it would also be fun to read this with a kids and go through the traditions (like baking the cookies).
