Heilig Abend (Christmas Eve)

Frohe Weihnachten!

This morning we got up and went grocery shopping for the next few days (when everything is closed in Germany), which turned out to be as much of an adventure as exploring a new city. Since it's a Monday, the stores have been closed for a day and will be closed for the next two and a half, so EVERYONE was grocery shopping.

After discussing which ham looked the most like *ham*, we decided to get turkey for our Christmas feast, as the Germans were not lined up for turkeys. :) And our feast sure did end up being good! This church (above) is the Ludwigskirche, where my oh-so-patient family attended Christmas service with me--in German. It was a little over an hour of foreign droning to their ears. Although I must say that the music was good, so I hope that made it worth it for them. No "Stille Nacht" at the end of the service, but a famous German carol: "O du fröhliche".

  1. Merry Christmas to the Sederbergs! Is that a German "Kiss the Cook" apron?
