In the lead up to Christmas, I enjoyed learning some typical German songs with a local choir – even if the pronunciation admittedly proved a challenge... I was even invited to the choir’s “Weichnachtsfeier” – surprise Christmas party! I was given a vague address of the meeting-point, which was where two roads met. With trusty Google Maps, I managed to arrive at the mysterious festive gathering on time… but nobody I knew was in sight.
I waited and waited, feeling anxious by this point: where could everyone be?!
They led us into a mysterious place… through a garage full of beautiful vintage cars and campervans, which had been converted into an American-themed diner. I was mesmerised.
It seemed that everyone enjoyed the evening – it was the combination of great music, food, and company. Towards the end of the night, the Weihnachtsmann prepared to say a few closing words.
