Bescherung: Christmas Eve 2008

In my family, we do Christmas the German way. So today, Heiligabend, we have Bescherung in the afternoon. It is all explained here. Happy Christmas Eve to you all!

Interesting, after reading about it I now know that is why we celebrated Christmas in this way when I was a child. We had German grandparents and the custom continued. We don't wait until the Christmas Eve to put the tree up anymore, we put it up early and enjoy it.
