Merry Christmas

By December 23, 2012

Follow me on:

...or "Frohe Weihnachten", as they like to say around here.

Tomorrow is the big day, or better, the big evening in Germany:  The highlight of the holiday season is Holy Eve on December 24th. German Children usually don't get to see the illuminated Christmas tree until tomorrow evening (parents secretly decorate the tree with ornaments and lights, often on the afternoon of the 24th). Presents are exchanged, and many people visit a Christmas mass. A traditional German Christmas dinner is "Weihnachtsgans", goose, often served with dumplings and red cabbage.

December 25th and 26th are both federal holidays; shops and offices are closed, and families concentrate on the more important things in life; visiting friends, relaxing, watching a Christmas movie, and eating hearty food.

I wish you all "Frohe Weihnachten" - merry Christmas!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of
plagorism

or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content

I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up

all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d really
appreciate it.
