We all know Germans aren't exactly well known for their sense of humour. So whenever my students think I'm funny, the first thing they question (as a joke, normally!) is whether I'm really German. I am "deeply German" as one of my students once said in some respects, but not in others. So every Christmas the one thing that actually gets me in the Xmas mood is "Weihnachten bei Hoppenstedts". Why? Because it makes fun of taking Christmas too seriously- from a very German perspective. It's a must watch. You'll find it online (they keep changing links, hence no link here) Enjoy and Merry Christmas! Curious how to say "Merry Christmas in German", then check out my post.
