HowToBe ACA #4-5

"Teach your children pride in their ancestors' holiday customs."
"Visit local museums to see how Christmas is celebrated in the past and around the world."

These were similar so I picked both of them. Our family is mostly German-Norwegian so we have lots of the same traditions. German Christmas customs have spread throughout the world wherever Christmas is celebrated. From the Christmas tree (Tannenbaum) to "Silent Night" ("Stille Nacht") and on to the Advent calendar (Adventskalender), people around the globe have adopted many traditions that began in the German-speaking world.

Fröhliche Weihnachten! Merry Christmas!
