Herford, Germany 1996 & 1997.
Christmas in Germany is not a unique experience for me. I have spent four Christmases with my relatives. There is really nothing quite like a German Christmas. So many of our American traditions originated in Germany, so it is great to see the many German holiday traditions firsthand.
The live, lit candles on the German Christmas tree are super, both at home and in the churches
Food is certainly a highlight when one visits with friends and family
Church services and Advent programs bring the festive spirit to the holidays
