A Traditional German Holiday Meal
“German cooking is not always easy to describe because there are numerous regional specialties and each of the yearly recurring holidays and celebrations comes with its own locally conditioned tastes and smells. Depending on ethnic tradition and family background, Christmas may come with the smell of baked apples, green branches and red and white candles, and with the sounds of church bells or jingle bells. Weeks before the feast days there may begin elaborate preparations. In the past these have involved a great amount of cooking special meats or fish and baking of breads, fancy cakes, baked apples and special cookies.”

Germans Have a Cure for the Common Scrooge

“Christmas is a special time of the year for German families and particularly during the Advent period, the season is celebrated with a tempting array of confections, cookies and cakes, many homemade and some purchased.”

Christmas Wouldn’t be Christmas Without your Favorite Cookies!
