German Peoples That have Immigrated to America!!

About Germans

Germans first started to immigrate in 1683. They left Deutschland(Germany) for religious freedom and they were being attacked by lots of nations. The German word for German American is Deutsch-Amerikanische. German influence is strong over America and a saying from Benjamin Franklin on the right. From the Germans we got traditions like the Easter bunny and Easter egg hunts. We also got Christmas trees and Santa Claus from the Germans. Also, we got Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is where many cities across the United States eat German food, dress in German clothes, and listen to German Music. A German greeting would be "Guten tag" which means "good day". The initial ride to America would take up to 3 weeks in the 1900's. Then they would have to go to Ellis Island and check in or be checked and they have to have family with them and be healthy enough if they were kids to get off Ellis Island and enter America. If they were adults, they just had to be healthy enough. If they were not healthy enough, they were deported. To say thank you in German, you say Donka.
