Advent Care Package
The four weeks leading up to Christmas Eve are a happy time – at least for those who believe in the beautiful history of Christmas and willing to make this time of the year even more charming. This day in Germany many families set up an Advent wreath, or Adventskranz on the first Advent Sunday (the fourth before Christmas) to start the Advent season. A typical Advent wreath is made of evergreen branches and decorated with red-green tapes, pine cones and four candles, one for each week of Advent. Traditional families still gather around the wreath on each Advent Sunday to light the next candle, have some lebkuchen cookies and sing carols. This was even more important in the past, when the Christmas tree was usually reserved for a special unveiling only on Christmas Eve. Until then, the Advent wreath provided the evergreen look and special festive aroma in the house.
This package includes a bag of Speculatius (spiced thin gingerbread), Spitzkuchen (soft gingerbread covered in chocolate), Nurnberger Lebkuchen (original town, these cookies are soft and made with ground nuts and spiced with citrus rind), Dominosteine (layered small cake with jam, gingerbread and marzipan), Pfeffernusse (spiced gingerbread with icing), Mini marzipan stollen (german christmas cake), Vanilla gipferl (vanilla and ground nut cookies), Cinnamon heart cookies with icing, Solid chocolate wreaths with sprinkles and Marzipan potatoes. Now THAT is a package to enjoy!!!!
