Already in festive mood?

 

I am trying to prepare myself for Christmas by decorating my living room ... - this is a so-called Erzgebirge star.

Your living room looks festive with its red star on a pink ribbon...that might be enough!
Philine: Yes, lees is more - many thanks, Ray!
Lovely ornament, Philine!
Philine: Many thanks, Elizabeth, my ornaments for Christmas are very modest, the main decoration will be the Christmas tree we have to buy next week.

It is a very nice star Philine. I festoon our living room with tinsel and Christmas cards
Philine: The Erzgebirge stars and other things for Christmas are wonderful, the most beautiful star is the Herrnhuter Star with lots of points. My Christmas card for you is already on way. Many thanks, Chris!

Less is beautiful, Philine
Philine: I agree with you, our main ornament will be the Christmas tree we have to buy next week. Many thanks, Lisl!

The Erzgebirge has so many lovely stars for Chrismas, this is one of them, I spend a few winterholidays in the Erzgebirge, so it brings back memories, so nice... The church of Annaberg is amazing!
Philine: You are so right - I have been in Annaberg, too - we have some wooden things from the Erzgebirge (Seiffen) we are used to set up at Christmas. Heel bedankt, Salima!

I see it has seven points to the star Philine. Do you have Holly wreaths on your doors in Germany?
Philine: There might be some symbolism I don't know, Ayush mentioned the seven points, too. Yes, I have a wreath (made of Tannnengrün with red berries) on the door of my apartment. The most beautiful ornament is surely the Herrnhuter Star that usually hangs in the churches. Heel bedankt, Chad! I hope you could escape the snow (see Lisl's image today) by your car.
We decorated our Christmas tree on Sunday as it looked all snowy outside and we felt in the mood grin
Philine: I understand that you felt in the mood. We'll buy our Christmas tree next week from a farmer outside of Münster. Many thanks, Bill! Please, show some pictures of the snow in the Midlands!
