I am from a family of ten children. We had no gifts, but we did have beautiful Christmas tree, which my Dad decorated behind the closed door.
My Mom always made a large pot of Potato Soup and fresh bread and a large Apple Strudel.
After all of us kids got cleaned up and dressed in our best clothes, my Dad would ring a little bell, which meant "Christkind has arrived" and we were allowed to go in and see the beautiful Christmas tree. My Mom would start out with singing Ave Maria and after that we all sang different Christmas Songs.
Later on, we visit some of our neighbours to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. The parents all sat together for coffee and us kids played games.
At 10:00 pm, my Mother would heat up "weisswurst" for us. After that, we went to the "Midnight Mass" in our little town. Since we lived a long way from the Church (about an hour walk), we had to start out early.
The most beautiful memory about the Christmas Midnight Mass was that at midnight a trumpet player would stand in the Church tower and play "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht" and then we all walked home in knee-deep snow.
No gifts. No fancy food. But, a beautiful Christmas it was while I was growing up in a large family.
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.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
