Christmas in Germany

Dates in December

Advent 1st Sunday - Dec 24thSt. Nicholas Day - Dec 6thChristmas Eve - Dec 24thChristmas - Dec 25thNew Years Eve - Dec 31st

For Santa they have St Nicholas or (Der Nikolaus) or Father Christmas (Der Weihnachtsmann)

Krampus the companion of St Nicholas punishes misbehaved children on Christmas

Punishments Include-Hit you with birch rod right in the bum- Shake his chains until your ears go numb-Drown you in ink and fish out your corpse with a pitchfork

They have a holiday called Advent which spands from the first Sunday of December to Dec 24th. They take their advent calandars very seriously and I saw one online for $2000.

Like us they have Turkey and chicken but the most noteable is cookies with sixty recipes just for Christmas season.
