  1. In the video you can see Dom's neglected guitar over his shoulder sitting in the corner by itself. Poor little guy wishes he could come out and play but alas, Dominik never learned how to play it. :_( Dom, make your guitar's Christmas dreams come true this year and learn to play. It might sound something like this: https://youtu.be/EO7cD6qmydo
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  2. I am not saying white lights are bad but to me you see white lights all the time the rest of the year so I prefer colored lights. One of my biggest peeves about the US is it seems that everything is beige, black, white, or silver. Very bland. I love bright colors. As for the light displays in the US I agree a lot of people go overboard in a big way. It even surpasses kitsch.

  3. My fondest memories are the Christmas' I've spent in Germany. As you explained, although there are many traditions it is not so over done and they don't go bankrupt trying to buy so many presents and decorations. Sometimes less is more and makes it so much nicer when you are not concerned about expenses. When you can enjoy your family without stress. My personal favorite treat this time of year in Germany, is the New Years Pretzel… soooo good. Merry Christmas from Texas 🙂

  4. I'm a member on a FB page called I Love Germany & they posted a photo of a market called Annaberg-Buccholz Christmas market & I just thought that was really cool cus my great grandfather's family name is Buccholz, I find Krampusnacht really interesting btw, do ppl still do that? I love The Last Unicorn. Not necessarily a kids movie but it's different

  5. I’m realizing after watching this how many of my family’s Christmas traditions go back to our German roots. Our decor is more subtle, like you described. We can’t stand colored Christmas lights. We also celebrate and go to church on Christmas Eve, and we eat smaller plates of things instead of a full fledged meal, including the chicken legs. The St. Nick’s tradition is a thing for us too, but we’re a little more lenient on the day, just because of our schedules have gotten busier. Cool how my family’s continued with these traditions over several generations.

  6. Thanks I like learning about German traditions
    Most of the German culture was lost shunned here in the US after the 2ed world war.
    I remember when I was young seeing pictures of my dad at my grandparents house from when he was a kid in the early 1940s wearing lederhosen I think that is how you spell that

  7. Growing up in Milwaukee (USA), the family tradition was to open presents late on Christmas Eve and a buffet of food was also served, almost always a baked ham, along with bread rolls and other dishes such as German potato salad, cole slaw, pickled herring (ugh) and so on, plus pickles, radishes, olives etc. Some people would also attend midnight mass, however my family would only go to church for weddings or funerals. On Saint Nicolas Day, children would receive stockings (fake, sort of mesh plastic stockings) filled with candy and small gifts. So as you can see, the way we celebrated Christmas was quite a bit different from the way you celebrate……wait a minute, it's almost the same.

  8. We put the tree up on the 8th of December because it’s the day of the Virgin Mary here so it’s a tradition and we take it down on the 6th because “los reyes magos”come and bring presents too I don’t know how to say it in English sorry. Then about the food my sister cooks a lot of food and we are 6 people only, and about family I have the same problem we celebrate on our own we are not really close to the other part of the family. Even I, am the youngest and I don’t know some of the people in my own family, because of disagreement on the past. We have dinner on the 24th open the presents and on the 25th we don’t do anything we eat the leftovers of the night before. Also we are in summer here so the food it’s different, so we don’t die eating all those calories made for colder weather. Have a happy merry Christmas and better new year dominik

  9. It's interesting how other countries celebrate Christmas.
    Probably not interesting at all. Here in the UK we have a superstition that if you do not take your Christmas decorations down on or before the 5th of January that it is bad luck.
    Fröhe weihnachten! 🙂

  10. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Maybe your mother would like to be a grandma for Christmas? I passed out fertility trackers for a present to my married daughters this year.

  11. Great vids, does anyone hang their evergreen/Christmas trees upside down? It represents the holy Trinity, as I have learned. I actually saw this in a Hofbrauhaus in the USA, but unsure if common in Germany. I want to, but my wife is not on board. Can you comnent?

  12. I'm from South Germany and I have to add something: In the south it's not Santa that brings the presents, it's the Christkind! (Actually refers to Jesus, but everyone imagines it as an angel-like girl). I like the imagination of the Christkind way more than of Santa. xD (Santa's origin is actually St Nikolaus).
    In my family we don't do the boots-thing, but every year a Nikolaus would visit our house, often in company of an angel – and a Krampus. He would read from a golden book what has been good and bad about my behaviour and then give me presents. I was sooo scared of St Nikolaus as a kid! (For me he was as scary as the Krampus.) We don't have a Krampuslauf around here. But we have something smilar called "Perchten". They appear at some christmas markets and make noises and "shows" and dances.

    Ne Frage zum Wichteln (Secret Santa): Also kann man mehrere Geschenke kriegen und manche bekommen gar nichts? Wie unfair ist das denn? xD Wir machen das immer so, dass jeder einen Namen zieht und für den muss man dann ein Geschenk besorgen. So bekommt jeder eins. Eure Art davon würd mir nicht gefallen. xD
    Wir stellen den Baum auch erst kurz vor Weihnachten auf.

  13. Here in Pennsylvania dutch Country a lot of us keep the white candle in the windows all year round. Of course if you're not nice the belsnickle we'll get you on Christmas.
