We have had a lovely time in the Nightingales this afternoon. We looked at videos of German Christmas markets and learned about their traditions and food. We then had a German tasting plate of smoked cheese, ham, salami, bread, rye bread, gingerbread and stolen. It was delicious and washed down with blackcurrant or water. Of course we couldn’t have gluhwein. After that we listened to some traditional German carols and music and had a dance. We learned that in Southern Germany they take part in a schuplattler dance. We had a go. It was very difficult. Frohe Weihnachten!!
