Christmastime Already?

Since the Germans don't really celebrate Halloween, there is nothing to keep the Christmas tide from starting even earlier than in the States. That means last week the seasonal foods section appeared in all the supermarkets. Good news for me, since I love the Gl├╝hwein (mulled wine) and Spekulatius (ginger cookies) season. I also saw Christmas decorations in a discount store. Still, three months before Christmas seems like overkill, doesn't it?

Speaking of Christmas, the tickets are booked: I'll be back from the 13th of December to the 10th of January. Mark your calendars and let's set a date to get together if you'll be in Duluth then.

I don't know... it's not just Germany. The Christmas trees are already up at Macy's, and the Holiday 2007 Barbie has been available at Walmart for at least a month. Just a bit early....
