We are looking forward to the beginning of the festive season. There are so many different Christmas traditions here in Germany and we would like to describe a few interesting ones. Some of you might have German ancestors and might realize that these traditions have crossed the Atlantic and stayed alive in your families. We would like to present some photos of our decorations at home and give you a recipe for a traditional German cookie which is easy to prepare and very delicious.
Later on we are planning to show you photos from the famous Christmas markets.....
Maria & Dieter
We are a German couple living near the romantic Rhine valley and the cities of Cologne and Bonn in Germany. Three years ago we met Susan through the internet and have become great friends. We have so much in common and share a passion for antiques, good food and traveling, that it is fun to meet and do things together. Over the last 3 years we have met Susan and her sister Eileen in Paris, Germany and the USA. We are already planning our next trips to Provence and Prague and Dieter and I feel honored to provide photos, comments, reports and recipes from Europe to Susan and Eileen's blog.
