German American Heritage
German immigrants to the USA made a huge contribution to its culture, economy and technology. From introducing Santa Claus, founding breweries, popularizing ketchup, producing Presidents to establishing banking, industrial and philanthropic dynasties and designing the Brooklyn Bridge.

German Wedding Traditions
May is the most popular month to marry in Germany, and the country's different regions have many of their own, often "eccentric", wedding customs. Traditions begin weeks before a wedding takes place, and then the festivities can last for days.
