Merry Christmas/ Froehe Weihnachten

and Happy Chanukah, too!

Things are slowing down here at the Pearce household as we finish up our gift buying and attend numerous school events.

I’m still working on that sweater. Who knows if it will make it under the tree or not, but if it does, it will most certainly be in pieces. I’ve run into a conundrum with the sleeve length after thinking I had finished one sleeve. Hard to explain, but if I can make two matching sleeves that fit, it’ll be a Christmas miracle. The good news is, the color combo is working, and one of my two expert family knitters will be visiting soon.

The picture above is from the main Christmas market here in Hannover. I really wish there were such a thing in the States. They beat the mall up and down the block. It’s like a temporary wooden village built in the pedestrian zones, where they sell gift items, fun snacks, and gluehwein (a hot alcoholic drink). I am so going to miss the Christmas markets next year after we’ve moved back.

I hope to see you again soon, but it may not be until after the New Year, so until then, cheers!

  1. Merry Christmas, Emily – to you and your family! I enjoyed reading your article about traditions in Germany and would love to one day visit a Christmas market.

  2. I was able to get the gluehwein here again at Aldi this year and it really does warm you up although we have not needed warming around here lately as it’s been warm for December and doesn’t really feel like Christmas time. Hope you all have a WONDERFUL Christmas ! Love and hus, Aunt Nancy
