Germans are Christmas-crazy:

  • Most people wish for white Christmas, but it only snowed 4 times on christmas Eve in the last 30 years… – but hey, fingers crossed 😊
  • One quarter of German household eats potato salad with sausages as Christmas Eve dinner
  • At around September most stores start to sell Christmas sweets – and Germans buy them. No wonder Christmas Time is the time of gaining a few or more pounds
  • Sure you have seen Chocolate Santa Clauses in different variations. Well, there are 144.000.000 of them produced
