Growing up With a German Christmas in Belding MI

by Jutta
(Prosperity SC, USA)

My favorite memory of our "German" Christmas is helping my dad decorate the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. After the tree was decorated we would open our presents too. We didn't get very many, but it was what our parents could provide, and we never said "is this all there is"!!

My mother would fix all of us a plate of nuts with apples and oranges (winter fresh fruit). She would also bake such wonderful Christmas cookies. She has passed on and so have her recipes. I am trying to duplicate the best I can. Especially the yeast cakes and cherry cake she made. Thanks for your site it does help. I have fond memories of my mother and dad's roots when it comes to cooking. Very simple, but oh so tasty.

Thanks for your recipes, I am so going to have a true German Christmas this year.

Wonderful Memories
by: Gerhild

Thanks, Jutta, for sharing your wonderful memories of having a German Christmas. Part of passing on our culture is to keep the holiday traditions alive.

How nice that you're going to continue that this Christmas. I'm already looking forward to starting the baking and the decorating.

Do let us know what special treats you'll be making this year. Perhaps even include some pictures? The cherry cake sounds interesting. Would you like to share the recipe with us?

Frohe Weihnachten!

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

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.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

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 ... and a whole bunch to gain.
