August 16 2010 German Culture Newsletter
It is certainly hard to tell that it is summer here because it is raining so much, but autumn is definitely approaching bringing with it those 'back to school days' and those very first school days. Here is the latest article from the German Culture site at BellaOnline.com.
Schultueten and the First Day at School
Well for most of us our very first day at school was a mixture of excitement and panic, and of course German children beginning their school life must feel much the same, however their day is also filled with tradition, fun, excitement and surprise. This weeks article is about that special German tradition, the Schultuete.
