German Christmas Traditions And How To Prepare For Christmas The German Way


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.

Great Gift Alternatives To Toys For Kids In And Around Austin


Toys are important, toys are fun.

Some toys are amazing and enriching to a child's imagination, learning and creativity.

But: Many toys are just something that gets wrapped up in pretty paper, so your child has something to rip into on Christmas morning, or on their birthday, or on any other gift-inspired holiday. These toys often last only for a short time, are forgotten in no time, and end up on the landfill.

Austin is an amazing city to raise kids.

The Austin area has so much to give and offers some fantastic toy-alternatives that serve your children (and your entire family) well.

Every Child Deserves A Happy Halloween – Free Costumes For Children Of Low-Income Families


Celebrating Halloween should not be a kid’s “privilege”, it should be a kid’s “right”.

Do you have Halloween costumes your child has outgrown of and that you'd like to donate? Or are you struggling to “pay the price of Halloween”? Read on to learn how Costume Connections (and you) can help.
