Liebe Mitglieder, we are cordially inviting you to join our 4th Weihnachtsfeier!
This is a potluck gathering, checkout the "Food list" see the "docs.google link" below and let us know in the comment or add to list what will you be bringing; we are hoping to taste awesome dishes. - Beautiful German Christmas music will be played in the background and we will be singing German Christmas carols.
If you have a German Smoker and a colorful Nutcracker please bring it with you. Heidi and Simona are working hard to make this a memorable event so come!
Learn about some German Traditions:
Christstollen – This is a braided fruitcake made of almonds, rum, candied lemon and orange peels.
Glühwein – This is a mulled spiced wine. If possible, make this immediately prior to your gathering and allow it to simmer as guests help themselves.
Lebkuchen – Gingerbread If you have made your gingerbread a day or more before your gathering, consider using a German smoker to simulate the scent of fresh baked gingerbread with incense.
Quetschenmännchen – Plum men. At one time these were given by young men to the gals they wanted to court, today these fill the day with love and fun. Make your own Quetschenmännchen by making a man out of prunes on toothpicks. Give them a set of clothes and a smile with icing and the silliness is ready for eating.
Brenten – These are almond cookies cut into various shapes. One way to serve these German cookies could be as ornaments on a small Christmas tree.
We look forward to seeing you!! Above all remember, Frohe Weihnachten or Merry Christmas!
- Your team Simona and Heidi
