Merry Christmas Everyone

Merry Christmas Everyone

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Thank you for your support this year. We look forward to delivering lots and lots of parcels to you around the globe again in the new year!

How do you celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve? Do you have any traditions and special activities you do during the holidays? Have you ever wondered how other countries celebrate Christmas? Here’s a short insight into the German Christmas and New Year’s Eve traditions and celebrations:

Christmas inGermany

24th December – Heiligabend

Today, the 24th of December, is Christmas Eve, or as we call it in Germany Heiligabend (translated ‘holy night’). This is the day families and friends exchange their gifts. It starts out as a normal work day, however, in the afternoon shops and offices will be closed to prepare for the holidays. Many families attend a church service on the 24th, either in the afternoon or at midnight, before/after having dinner with the family. There is not really one traditional meal that Germans eat on Christmas. Many keep it simple and have carp with potato salad, however, also roast goose and duck as well as deer are favourites on the Christmas dinner table.

In the evening the presents will be laid underneath the elegantly decorated Christmas tree, which is a must-have for most families. It is then that the Chrimas gifts are exchanged, in the dim light of the Christmas tree lights (sometimes these can be real candles) and a plate of Christmas cookies and Lebkuchen on the table along with some (mulled) wine or hot chocolate. It’s a family celebration.

Christmas in Germany

25th and 26th December – First and Second Christmas Day

Both days are public holidays in Germany and are usually celebrated with those family members, who were not all able to come together on Christmas Eve. The First and Second Christmas Day are mostly spent with the extended family who gather for lunch and/or dinner. Goose or rabbit are popular dishes to eat on Christmas Day. Of course German delicacies such as potato dumplings and red cabbage cannot be missing on any plate during Christmas. Depending on how many family members there are to visit, the Second Christmas Day is either spent with more family or rather quietly. It is often spent recovering from all the food eaten during the previous days.

New Year’s Eve: Silvester in Germany

New Year’s Eve, the last day of the year is called Silvester in Germany. There is no one traditional way of how this night is spent, however, many traditions take place on this day. Many families and friends join together for a nice dinner. This can be all kinds of food from raclette or fondue to Sauerkraut with sausages – actually, it is said if you eat Sauerkraut on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, your pockets shall be filled with money in the new year. Fireworks can be watched all over the country, you can buy your own fireworks or watch the larger ones organised by the public. It is also a tradition to watch the movie Dinner for One before midnight, which is broadcast on TV every year.

However it is you spend the holidays this year, we wish you a wonderful Christmas and all the best for the new year. May all your wishes come true and your shopping carts be filled with the best deals.

Best wishes, frohe Weihnachten und einen guten Rutsch!

(literal meaning:
Have a merry Christmas and slide into the new year well)
