I would like to know more about the traditions that people follow here during Christmas time. My child got one of this little houses made of sweets from one of the volunteers, is this a tradition here?
The background of Lebkuchenhaus is a tale of "Hänsel und Gretel". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans...
Sometimes it is given as a present, but it is not a widespread tradition.
To bake cookies is a tradition a few weeks before christmas. The children help their mum or grandma or they do it in school or kindergarden.
When the sky is red in the evening we say, that the angels are doing the christmas baking :-)
