Mrs. Wriglesworth presented German Christmas customs to the 5th graders this week. She taught them to say "Froehliche Weihnachten" which means "Merry Christmas" in German. She showed them hand-painted Christmas ornaments and pictures from the Christkindlmarkts, the Christmas markets, that are found all over Germany. She also baked Lebkuchen for us to taste. YUM!
What did you learn about German Christmas customs? What special traditions does your family practice during the holidays?
