December 2-3, Oldenburg Rotary Meeting
I went with my friends and host brother to the Christmas market in Leer for some Kinderpunch and Pommes! It was really cold and snowy but lots of fun! The market was very lively at all times of the day but it was always a bit crazy at night! The stands served beer, sweets, french fries and more! Christmas is very big in Germany and it was cool to see the whole town decorated!
We went and picked out a Christmas tree! The trees are already cut and stored on pegs so you can just pick it up and leave! Unlike the grueling task of finding, cutting and carrying the tree across and open field. It started snowing so we went to the Christmas market and walked around for awhile. Then we went to a cafe and got something warm to drink! It was so snowy I felt like i was in a wonderland with all the lights and festivities!
This is the outside of my house!
For Christmas we celebrate on the 24th and we went to church and ate some very good food! That night we opened presents and ate some sweets! On the 25th we met with the extended family at my host grandmas house. It was nice to meet everyone in the family and share traditions.
It was a nice day after Christmas so my family took me up to the North Sea! It was very windy and cold but super pretty! We stopped and got tea and cake.
If you have any question feel free to comment! Sorry for this taking so long but I hope you enjoy!
