Other Bits

October 8 was German Day at Utica City Hall!

DID YOU KNOW...As Advent approaches, many German customs are celebrated in Germany and by families in America carrying on the traditions. Bavaria's second largest city, Nüremberg, hosts the most famous Christmas market in Germany.There are numerous Christkindlmarkts along the legendary Danube, Europe's second-longest river, that 2,000 mile long stretch of water that provides a link between Germany and Austria. On the evening of December 5th, children put their shoes outside their bedroom door or next to the fireplace, in hopes that St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children, will leave some candy or fruit for them. Advent candles are lit, usually set into a decorated evergreen wreath, one for each week in December. (German Life - Dec. 2015)
