And YOU Thought YOUR Days Before Christmas Are Stressful?

If you thought YOUR days before Christmas are stressful, read on and think again.

Christmas is the most important and most celebrated holiday in Germany and is very much enjoyed by children and parents alike. However, the Holiday season and pretty much the entire month of December (even the last week of November) demands a lot from parents in Germany. Preparing for the festivities is very time consuming and due to extreme sugar consumption you’ll see more kids bouncing off the walls and driving their parents insane than in any other month – as the following Christmas traditions will attest.

Queen for a Day - Kindergarten Fun


Our school does that fun thing where Kindergartners are “Queen for a Day” or “King for a Day”. They get to wear a crown and the entire class draws the queen or king. The teacher binds the drawings into a book and the queen or king can take the book home with her/him.

The book is adorable and we got a good laugh out of it. Plus, there are quite some little Picassos in her class, check it out.
