Christmas in Germany
German Christmas Traditions
And Customs

Christmas in Germany (Weihnachten) is celebrated from December 1 to January 6. On my Christmas pages you will find out about German Christmas traditions and customs as well as delicious German Christmas dessert recipes, baking and traditional German cookie recipes.

Did you know that the Christmas tree (Tannenbaum, Christbaum) actually arrived in America and England from Germany? In fact many Christmas traditions have been adopted, or should I say adapted, from Germany.

Christmas baking recipes: Christmas biscuits (cookies) which are known as Weihnachtspl├Ątzchen. Be warned, these are not for those on a diet, but are very delicious and very moreish.

German Christmas Calendar: Christmas countdown with important dates.
