So, tell us, did you get through the Christmas holidays all right? Had a good start into the new year? Slept off any hangovers? The resolution to never-ever eat any sweets again already broken? We wish you all good luck and success for the New Year, and above all good health.
This school year, my nephew started school. (Yes, he is that big already). Here in Germany, there is a custom to give children a „Schultüte“ (school-cone) when they start school. This cardboard cone is usually colorfully decorated and filled with all kinds of useful things for the start of school (a watercolor box, crayons and colored pencils, ruler and eraser). But of course, there’s always plenty of candy in there, too.
Of course, my nephew couldn’t start his school career with just any bought school-cone, possibly printed with those annoying firefighter puppies or any superheroes. It had to be his friends from their mutual space adventures!
The time of Advent has begun. Our friends from Dr. Sack’s channel are celebrating this pre-Christmas season like every year. On each of the four Sundays before Christmas they broadcast a (sometimes more, sometimes less) contemplative magazine programme: “Dr. Sack’s Weihnachts-Magazin”.
In today’s episode of the first Advent our Garstl has a small guest appearance.
