  1. Thank you so much for a wonderful giveaway. I’ve been following your blog for a while and always find the information so interesting. I am estranged from my family but have always been interested in our German heritage. Visiting your blog is sort of like finding that connection. Last year I was gifted a Christian Ulbricht nutcracker from my husband based on your post. Having any of these would be a wonderful companion to the nutcracker! Vielen Danke!

  2. I enjoy your posts so much. Brings back all the memories from Christmas past and my German mother and all the traditions that she had for the Christmas Season. I try to keep these traditions alive for my children and grandchildren as well. Thank you so much.

  3. I’ve used your website a couple of times, especially this time of year (your Glühwein is the best!) and had no idea that you were all over social media! That’s great! Now I can get my German Girl in America fix regularly.

    Thank you for the giveaway and having such a great website for Americans (and everyone, really) that wants a little bit of Germany in their lives.

  4. Love this blog and facebook page! It keeps me connected with all things German – I miss my family in Germany so this helps! Thank you for the great give away!

  5. E aloha mai, Ooh how awesome are these!! Mahalo for making this competition possible! Seeing these prizes brings back childhood memories of Christmas in Germany. It is a my greatest wish to go back to Germany and experience Christmas as an adult there. Good luck to all who entered!!

  6. As the mother in law of a “German Girl in America” I really enjoy your posts and hope they help her in her life in the USA.

  7. I love your page! Most of my family is German, but some of the history of our family traditions was lost over the years. I love the articles and references you post!

  8. Karen, I’d like to thank you for this blog. I’ve been here in the US since I was 14 and the things you post bring back so many memories I’ve forgotten about. I really appreciate it and all the links you post so I can get a little bit of home into my home here. Keep up the great work! ????
