Germany -- The Christmas Tree

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 1:05 PM

In Germany we learned about the legend of the Christmas tree, and how Martin Luther saw the glistening of the ice on the trees on Christmas eve and how it reminded him of the Star in the Christmas story, so he cut down the tree and brought it in for a sermon and placed candles on the tree.  We also learned that Germany also gave us the Advent Calendar (of which we have in our house) and also the Nutcracker. 

We watched a man create some glass bulbs........they are so beautiful.

Maggie Beth enjoyed playing these congos, perhaps Santa should bring her some for Christmas.
