Sehr Gut! Classic German Christmas Traditions To Enjoy

Published

on

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!

Alita: Battle Angel Movie Review: Too Good To Soak In

Published

Alita: Battle Angel

The perfect surprise, Alita Battle Angel, has all the flavors, another masterstroke from Robert Rodriguez’s. Movies that are hitting the big screen and are doing good business most of them have no essence its just superficial but then this film is definitely larger than life. Rodriguez’s take on Yukito Kishiro’s manga series is a shining star where the special effects and ravishing style of storytelling are combined together for the best movie.

There has been too much stuff in the film Alita: Battle Angel

The movie is set centuries ahead in future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), he happens to be a compassionate cyber doctor and nurses unconscious cyborg Alita.

When she awakens she has lost her memory and also has no memory of the world to where she belongs and thus lands herself in an entirely new situation.

In this world, everything is new to her and she beautifully expresses her feelings on seeing everything as a new experience. She learns to pave way for her new life in the treacherous streets of Iron City.

I do try to protect Alita from her mysterious past and on the other hand, her street smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers to help but does the reverse and tries to bring her memory back.

Affection blooms between the two until evil forces creep in and threaten Alita and her new found relationship. It is only now that Alita discovers that she has amazing abilities to fight and protect her friends and families whom she loves so deeply.

She is then determined to find the truth behind her origin and this is dangerous path that leads her to the injustices that were rendered on her in the past, the corrupt world and she discovers the woman power and the ability of a young woman to change the bad world and set it on the path of honesty and compassion.

It’s a movie that you aspire you to bring the change, it has action and adventure with technology imbibed in to present the power of a girl and the dedication of a man who supports her and helps her to stay strong.

Alita: Battle Angel is a film with 122 running minutes of visual spectacular production with some amazing performances that make the world from far centuries to be so real. I can say, this is the finest sci-fi film.
