O Tannenbaum

I think, aside from 'scheisse', the only vocab I remember from my German lessons is 'tannenbaum', from the German original of the song 'Oh Christmas Tree'. I suppose it is fitting for this post, given the Germanic origins of my family's Christmas baubles. Each year a new addition is added to our tree from German and Scandinavian stalls at various Christmas markets. Personally, I love the unique effect it adds to our Christmas tree and the happy memories evoked by each bauble. Here are my favourite ones that my family has collected over the years...

I'd love to hear if you have any similar traditions at Christmas and how you decorate your tree!

Keep festive!
