The arrival of advent in Germany signals the opening of the traditional Christmas Markets which have been busy for some weeks now. Famous the world over they are an essential, and enchanting, part of the German holiday season, and the article this week covers the centuries old tradition.

However is not possible to have an article about German Weihnachtsmaerkte without including recipes for the treat that everyone just have to have, Gebrannte Mandeln, so here are two quick and easy recipes to transport you to a snow covered Christmas market in Germany.

This site has a German Culture forum located here -

so hope to hear from you with any comments or questions, either in the forum or in response to this email message.

If you know anyone who might be interested in Christmas customs and traditions in Germany then please pass this message along.
