Christmas in Darmstadt
I'm American but lived several years in Germany. I love the German Christmas traditions! For instance celebrating a 1st and 2nd Christmas day and celebrating until the 6th of January, Epiphanias (Epiphany).
I love the delicious Christmas cookies and festiveness. Also the church bells on Christmas Eve.
Visiting the Christmas market was so much fun!

Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
Have Oma by your side ... helping you

Oma's Christmas Stollen is the BEST. Why? Because it's always moist, has a wonderful flavor, and is super quick to make. And, I put Marzipan in it!!!

These German gingerbread cookies, or Lebkuchen, are such a traditional cookie to have for Christmas. They're very easy to make, there's no reason to buy them.
