Our family Christmas from Germany to USA

by Frankie Lee
(Alpharetta GA USA)

My mother was from Munchen and with her came all the traditions of Christmas and so beautiful.

Some of the food was knodels which is our family tradition and the lebkuchen that we all looked forward to then cucumber salad and leek salad and German potato salad, a goose and turkey and cheese plate and lunchmeats and German bread.

She made each Christmas so beautiful. We started by singing our family song, Silent Night, our great great great grandfather Franz Gruber, we are the Gruber side, my mother's maiden name. My grand father, Martin Gruber, made managers and we would light a candle and say a prayer.

Presents were many, but the important part was each other. It was beautiful. Now in my memories as I lost my gift...my mother.

Christmas is a celebration and most beautiful in Germany. It was always with us and always will be. German foods we learned to make. Each food item not only tasted good but also looked good. Germany does it right.......Silent Night, Holy Night.....Yes, Christmas is special in Germany, with the people and the food.

Merry Christmas

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.

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 workshop. 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 workshop 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.
