Advent Calendar Day 24: A German Christmas

Day 10 | Advent Calendar

Today was meant to be for a guest, someone had come forward and asked that I reserve the 10th of December in the Calendar for their contribution. Sadly the contribution has not arrived. Thus I am improvising and providing a link to one of the Advent Posts I wrote for last year’s calendar.

A German Christmas

Danzig Christmas Tree 2009 Christmas Tree in Danzig, Poland 2009

Most of my blog’s readers know this, I am German, but grew up in Germany the US and France. Still Christmas stayed a completely German affair. Not all parts of Germany are very Christmassy, nor are all Germans Christians. Still Christmas is important.

Today, I want to share some of my traditions for the 24th of December, or Heiligabend (Holy Evening).
The 24th of December starts with the opening of the last bag, window or door of the advent calendar. Because Christmas is almost here! Actually celebrations happen on the 24th rather than on the 25th. Today things are different for many Children in Germany, because most will be banned from the living room for most of the day.
