Nothing means more to Germans than Christmas. The Yuletide (even the name has German roots) is very special indeed in a land where family, faith and fantasy are so beloved. Many, if not most, of our own celebrations, including Santa Claus, the Christmas tree, gingerbread cookies, candy canes and many popular carols, come to us from Germany.
Christkindlmarkt is a most gentle festival, a time in which town centers are transformed into pre-Christmas marketplaces specializing in toys and goodies for children as well as traditional Yule decor.
There is no time like Christmas for Germans to celebrate; there is no time like Christmas to celebrate Germany. Join us each year on the first Sunday of December as we open our Christkindlmarkt at the Reading Liederkranz.
