Frohes neues Jahr!

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Angeblich soll man ja für Glück und Wohlstand im neuen Jahr Linsen essen – ich habe gleich einen ganz großen Topf voll Linsensuppe gekocht, der sorgt auf jeden Fall auch ohne Aberglauben für ein wohlig warmes Gefühl im Bauch.

Gutes neues Jahr!

Boston Globe Big Picture: Becoming Santa.

“At the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School in Midland, Mich., some two hundred Santas and Mrs. Clauses came from across the United States, Canada, Denmark and Norway to learn wood toy-making, brush up on storytelling skills, drive sleighs, feed reindeer and, most importantly, spread the Christmas spirit. Cookies are readily available at all times during the three-day training course on becoming Santa.”

I went to Berlin for a seminar yesterday and today. Last night I met friends for dinner, then went for a walk to the Brandenburg Gate. Although it’s been 27 years since the Berlin wall fell, it still chokes me up to actually be able to walk through the gate.
