Each German community has rules regarding snow and ice on sidewalks to avoid accidents. Residents living off base should check their rental contracts to find out about their obligations. The rental contract clearly states who must keep sidewalks free of ice and snow.
The most popular symbol for the holidays is the Christmas tree. Traditionally, most German families put up a Christmas tree in their homes, and those sticking to real old traditions don’t even put it up before the morning of Christmas Eve and keep it until Three Kings Day, Jan. 6. Some people also decorate the trees in their yards, mainly with light bulbs.
Even living in a modern world with electronic greeting cards, a big number of people all over the world still stick to the tradition of sending real holiday greeting cards to family members, relatives, friends and customers. The happy holidays greetings are combined with best wishes for the New Year.
