Sehr Gut! Classic German Christmas Traditions To Enjoy

Avatar

Published

Christmas remains a magical holiday, but German Christmas traditions make it even more so. We already thank Germans for the Christmas tree, of course, but on the enchanted German Christmas, water turns to wine, animals talk to humans, church bells ring from the bottom of the sea, and more.

Only the completely pure of heart experiences this type of Christmas magic, of course. Which leaves out most of us over the age of, oh, three or so. However, there are other traditional German Christmas events that any of us can enjoy.

More than just December 25

Traditionally, Europeans seem to enjoy life more than us Americans, with their shorter work weeks and longer vacations. They have a lot more year-end holidays than us, too, even counting Halloween and Thanksgiving. The German Christmas season actually starts on December 6.

St. Nick does double duty on that day: see, he has to go from house to house looking for shoes or boots that kids leave out. When he gets there, he checks their names in his big Book of Sins (much worse than The List) and either fill the footwear with tasty treats or twigs, depending.

St. Thomas Day

December 21 is generally the shortest day of the year, and it’s also known as St. Thomas Day. Well, in some parts of Germany, you’re awarded the title of “Thomas Donkey” if you wake up the latest, or are the last to arrive at work.

The fun part is, you get to carry around a cardboard donkey all day, and people get to make jokes about you. But it’s all in good fun, and at the end of the day, you get to enjoy tasty iced buns called Thomasplitzchen.

Dickbauch!

Lest you think I just insulted you with the title to this section, “dickbauch” means “fat stomach” in German. Okay, that still sounds insulting, but really it’s just a title given to Christmas Eve. There’s this legend that if you don’t stuff yourself on Christmas Eve, demons haunt you.

A heroic demon-free Christmas Eve demands the consumption of reisbrei (a cinnamon rice porridge), sucking pig, and (this being Germany) tasty white sausages, among other things.

The piece de resistance

Of course, all the aforementioned German traditions for Christmas leading up to the Christmas feast itself, which includes Dresden stollen, a fruit-filled bread much tastier than (shudder) fruitcake; Christstollen, a special Christmas bread also containing fruit, as well as nuts and raisins; and a nice, fat roast goose.

And don’t forget the marzipan and spice bars. German Christmas traditions are all about the delicious goodies! And American Christmas traditions are inherently rooted in the German ones. So go ahead, grab a frankfurter or schnitzel this Christmas Eve and serve up some extra German “Frohe Weihnachten” (“Merry Christmas“) this December 25th!

1. Movie: Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar

School: Lawrence School, Lovedale

How can we forget this famous movie featuring our all-time favourite, Aamir Khan? This movie was one of the most loved movies of that time. Do you remember the song of this movie, ‘Pehla Nasha, Pehla Khumar’ which never fails to remind every one of us about our high school crush? True right? The movie was shot at several locations around the hills in South India, but most of its scenes were shot at Lawrence School, Lovedale, Tamil Nadu.

2. Movie: Main Hoon Na

School: St Paul’s School, Darjeeling

The movie was directed by Farah Khan which became a huge hit among the fans. The movie was featured by none other than Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen, Amrita Rao and Zayed Khan. Most of the scenes were shot at St Paul’s School in Darjeeling.

3. Movie: Taare Zameen Par

Most of the movie scenes were shot at Panchgani, New Era High School where Darsheel Safary used to stay at boarding school and how his life took a U-turn after meeting a mind-blowing art teacher and do you know Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar also studied from this school.

Akshara Reddy - Miss Super World Globe 2019

The very young and beautiful Indian Model, Akshara Reddy will soon be representing nation India at the international beauty pageant i.e. Miss Super World Globe 2019 which is supposed to happen in the month of October in Dubai. She really needs to work hard to prove her potential as she would be facing tough competition with another 45 contestants.

Previously she was Miss South India and entertainer and now she has been delegated to Miss Super Globe India 2019. She won this title after defeating 240 contestants who represented 22 states. She belongs from a Tamil community and her family is well settled in Tamil Nadu.

Do you know her mother Gouri has also won Miss South India Crown in 2011?

On the negative side, she said to express herself on stage, she needs to be a bit dramatic over the stage while speaking. You can’t talk there like normal people.

She also added that for upcoming models, I would say that maintain your body first. Maintaining your body doesn’t mean that you have to be size zero. You don’t have to become chubby.

She also warned all the aspiring models to be aware of those fake modelling agencies. You need to know about their profile first before going to them. She concludes her discussion with saying, modelling is her passion and she loves doing that.
