Hallo, endlich einmal die deutschen Weihnachtsbräuche richtig erklärt, (denn in keinem deutschen Baum hängt eine Gurke wie so oft behauptet), danke dafür.Noch zu erwähnen, in den meisten Familien gibt es am heiligen Abend Kartoffelsalat und Würstchen.
Viele Grüße

Translation:

Hello, finally for once the German Christmas traditions properly explained, (since on no German tree does a pickle hang as is so often declared), thank you for that. Also, want to mention that in most families, on Christmas Eve, they have potato salad and sausages.

Best Wishes

Thank you, Tina, for your kind words. I was surprised to learn about the Christmas pickle. I needed to google it and find out, since I had heard something about it, but thought it was just in joke.

If you look at Wikipedia , it tells an interesting story why they think the American Christmas pickle came from Germany.

I like knowing about having potato salad and sausage for Christmas Eve. Sound so very German.

Thanks for sharing with us, Tina.

Blessings,
Gerhild Fulson

Christmas Pickle?
by: Anne

Hey, I thought that story about Germans having a pickle on their Christmas tree was pretty silly as well. I think it had to do with the decorations like it says on the Wikipedia link.

We love to have potato salad and sausage for our Christmas Eve as well Why? Tradition? No. Just because my Mom thought it was a nice easy and light supper for us.

After supper, we'd sit around the fireplace and sing some Christmas songs.

Then, finally, the moment my sisters and I were waiting for, We could open the presents that had been sitting under the tree,

I still love to open our presents on December 24. It brings back memories of those Christmases so long ago.

Thanks for sharing about the pickle!

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
