I hope everyone of you had a wonderful Halloween. It is funny that Halloween is one of my favourite holidays, but lately it seems that it gets short shrift in the United States. Here in Germany every year more people celebrate Halloween. This coming from my very wobbly grasp of the language. I just hope everyone had a wonderful time.
Well it is coming up to Christmas here, and it is one of my favourite Holidays, and I have to say that celebrating Christmas in Germany Rocks! I love the decorations, the food, Weihnachtmarkt (christmas markets), the gluehwein (like mulled wine), and the street food… I can’t wait. I wish you could spend it here with me. I think I want to spend every Christmas in Germany…*sigh* Well some of you better get over here at least for one Christmas here. I guess I like it here because it doesn’t seem as commercialized as it is in the states. Also you can say Merry Christmas, and not have anyone look dirty at you. Of course it is said in german but I digress. I wish we could say Merry Christmas, and have to other person reply thanks and Happy/Merry
The Weihnachtmarkt doesn’t start till the end of November, so probably I will have some pictures of all the festivities later. I am so excited! I can’t wait for Christmas! I have not forgotten the reason for the season, Jesus. But whatever you celebrate please be at peace, and good cheer. YAY!!!!
Now go get yourself a treat, and spend some time with your loved ones! Have a happy fall, and Thanksgiving! No I didn’t forget about Thanksgiving! Eat some turkey for me, we are having ham this year, and it might be just DH and I. Be grateful for the family friends that surrounds you!
I will try to have more pictures up soon.
