Are You Ready for Christmas?

I wonder if you know these Christmas words? Would you like to test yourself?

Lichterketten
Weihnachtskugeln
Weihnachtslied
Eierlikör
Lebkuchen
Ilex, Efeu und Mistel
ein Krippenspiel
Heiligabend
1. Weihnachtstag
2. Weihnachtstag

Lichterketten – fairy lights
Weihnachtskugeln – baubles
Weihnachtslied – Christmas carol
Eierlikör – eggnogg
Lebkuchen – gingerbread
Ilex, Efeu und Mistel – holly, ivy and mistletoe
ein Krippenspiel – a nativity play
Heiligabend – Christmas Eve
1. Weihnachtstag – Christmas Day
2. Weihnachtstag – Boxing Day

So how did it go? Was it easy for you?

I often hear people here in Germany talk about the first day of Christmas and the second day. We don’t say that. We only have the one day, Christmas Day. The day afterwards is called Boxing Day. It’s strange, but people seem to forget it!
