Adventsingen/Christmas Caroling (in German)
Zum Schneider has Adventsingen every Sunday until Christmas, but arrive early to get a good seat!

The Christmas Revels, a fully staged theatrical production that joyfully honors Christmas and the Winter Solstice and engages the audience in a unique multicultural experience that rouses people of all ages to sing in their seats and dance in the aisles.

This year?s theme - you guessed it! - is "Songs, Music, Stories, and Traditions from Bavaria and Switzerland", and four performances are given in just a few days, on December 10-12 at the Theater at the Museo del Barrio on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. So, get your tickets now and let the New York Revels transport you to Germany at Christmas time.

More information and tickets are available at http://www.nyrevels.org/christmas-revels.

Geschaenke Ideen (Gift Ideas)
If you are looking for a great gift for your friends and family, you might want to consider The Berlin Cookbook, that just came out in New York?s Berlinica publishing house.

From the publisher:
The Berlin Cookbook reveals how to make Schnitzel, Currywurst, Eisbein, D?ner Kebab, and those jelly donuts known as Berliners?and how easy it is, since Berlin cuisine is simple, wholesome, and down-to-earth. This cookbook offers traditional recipes and also tells stories about the heritage of Berlin food: how Eisbein got its name, why Friedrich II made Prussian farmers plant potatoes, how meatballs were imported by Huguenots, and how Bismarck got his herring.
The book can be ordered online here.

Berlinica has other books and CDs as well. The whole program can be found here.

German Preschool
