Christmas thoughts from Germany

14 Dec

Today we had a look at your Christmas trees and read your thoughts about Christmas. christmas tree

Here you can see our school’s tree. Lots of stars too…but not made by or for us 🙂

Christmas time is traditionally the time that awakes the good in people, the time when people don’t only think of themselves. Two weeks ago a class here organised a collection of food for the local  branch of a charity organisation called Die Tafel.

Inspired by the Italian and French Christmas thoughts we have prepared a little slide show for you.

    Will be back to have a closer look to your Xmas tree. When I clicked to enlarge the pic, I saw pretty stars but also a strange guy behind your Xmas tree .

    Are you talking about the Nana? That figure isn’t part of the Christmas decorations, she is always there..the product of a topic some students were working on last year. 🙂

    You see, as we are living in a federal state where students only go to school for 12 years, students have to do some research and produce an academic paper (“Seminarfacharbeit”) on a topic they can choose themselves but which has to be approved of and by a jury.If you want to use googletranslator or a colleaugue teaching German: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seminarfacharbeit
    The Nana was the result of a paper on art; the students coloured her for their presentation and afterwards gave her to school as a present. She’s living next to Foucault’s pendulum – also made by a student. 😉

    I saw both German creations … the Nana (now I know her name) is certainly peculiar, but I was admired by the pendulum, such an interesting sight to impress visitors!
