It's an unmistakable sign that the christmas season has started when Silke is decorating our home with candles, fairy lights, stars and all that stuff. The good thing about this season are of course the christmas cookies.
My favourite cookies are Hildabrötchen (as shown on the picture) - I even help with the "production", namely putting the sugar icing on the top.
Of course music is an important part of this season (and that's alone an safe indicator if Last Christmas and Do They Know It's Christmas? is played all over on the radio) and as big surprise to me Silke has voluntarily put my favourite christmas music, Wir warten auf’s Christkind from Die Toten Hosen into the CD player.
