How does German celebrate Christmas


How do they celebrate Christmas in Germany?

  • Christmas in Germany is very traditional. The preparation for this special feast begins with the advent season. In this time you will find a lot of advent calendars (with 24 small doors to open and some chocolate or pictures or other goodies behind) in German homes especially for children. Others pack 24 small presents and give them to a beloved person. Another thing which have to be done before christmas is the purchase of a christmas tree (it is mostly a fir or pine). In most German cities you will find some kind of Christmas markets where you can buy Christmas ornaments and lots of other things (Christmas cards, wooden things, ...) and eat sausages, baked potatoes, ... and certainly get mulled claret.
