In Germany, they traditionally
decorate their Christmas tree, or
Weihnachtsbaum, with candles.
St. Niklaus comes
on December 6th
and puts candy
and toys in good
children’s shoes.
If you were bad
this year, watch
out because
Will come and
hit you with a
stick or even
carry you away
in a sack!
The Advent
wreath has
four candles
on it to
represent the
four days of
advent.
O Tannenbaum
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter.
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerszeit,
nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter.
Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft, einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Joseph Mohr wrote the lyrics and Franz Grüber composed the
music. The song was shared by an organ repairer and was
spread throughout the world.

in Germany
consists of a main
course of Karp.
