(I know this is a little late, but having had company for the past 3 weeks has made me a tad behind on updating my blog!)
Having only lived in 3 different countries, I know I’m not the expert on all things regarding all countries, but in my limited experience, I really think that Germany does Christmas ‘right’. There is no “Black Friday”. Instead there are Christmas markets where you squeeze through crowds of people all mingling around examining the wares at the various booths, all the while eating delectable foods & drinking warm drinks. Even the Christmas decorations in the towns seem more beautiful somehow. I was trying to explain this to my brother, Caleb, & I think he said it best, “There aren’t any blow-up Santa Clauses in people’s yards”. I suppose I’m just biased, but I really do think that Christmas in Germany is a wonderful experience!
