"Oh Mom, We have to make German mac N cheese. I had it in German class today."


(Virginia Beach, VA, USA)

My 14 year old boy is taking German in high school. The have started a German Club. At the second meeting the kids brought gingerbread house kits to make. (I then had to research the history of gingerbread, gingerbread houses and ginger.) The teacher brought Cheese Spätzle to share with the students.

After reading your blog, I will be trying to make this Christmas German themed. I just missed the Saint Nicholas Day.
We are not a religious family, but have grown up with Santa, Christmas tree, gifts and stockings.
Thank you for sharing your memories and information. Family, friends and loving memories are always a good reason to celebrate and be grateful for what we have.
