Oh Tannenbaum! Oh Tannenbaum!

"oh, Tannenbaum... oh Tannenbaum... Der Weihnachtsmann geht Äpfel klauen.."

in English: " oh, Christmas tree... oh Christmas tree... Santa goes to steal apples"

Ok, Das ist nur Quatsch"! ( nonsense ) my husband use to sing this traditional Christmas song, and i thought that's the right lyrics ;) but then i just learned lately that he changed the lyrics of the song! oh, that's one of his 99% shit in the head! ;)

So, how we celebrated Christmas? Michael, me and Mutti (my mother in law) had a nice dinner together, my brother in law are in Norway with their friends, Mutti is bit sad but she said she understand them, because Michael and me are also not here on Christmas for the past few years. Michael baked goose (not whole, only breast) with fresh vegies and fruits i bought in the market a day before. It was excellent! never eat goose before, Mutti likes it also. "Danke mein Schatz für das wunderschöne Weihnachtsessen"! ;)

Like last year, Mutti read to us a verse from the Bible which tells how or why there's christmas, and then like last year, she asked me or requested that i sing a Christmas song. Ok, i can sing... i am a member of a church choir before long time ago. And yes... Mutti likes my song and it brings tears in her eyes everytime i sing, or maybe it's the spirit of Christmas.
Our Tannenbaum maybe is not so grandiuos or not so tall like the others, but it brings joy and peacefulness everytime we sit on our sofa and just staring at it (except when there's fußball). The decos are not all natural but the apples are real fresh from the market. We wanted to put real candles but because of security, we just put electric lights.

This Christmas tree will be standing here in our living room until my birthday ;) when? i won't tell you Lol! :) ok here's a clue, after three kings one day more then it's my birthday :)

From Wolfenbüttel with Love, we wish you all enjoy the rest of the holiday season and may you all have a Blessed and a Joyous New Year! :)
