’Tis the Season of Giving by Katie F. Boltuch, Contributing writer

More than anything, the holiday season is known for kindness and giving. Showing one another how much we care often results in the form of gifts. And while it’s wonderful to give to those we know and love, there are millions of people who do not share the same advantages or luxuries. Many are separated from their loved ones, and some don’t even get to experience the same kind of thoughtfulness. It’s been said that no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. If you’re looking to spread joy or for some good karma, there are plenty of ways to give back to your community and the world at large this holiday season. AmazonSmile. If you’re not one for crowds and prefer to do all of your holiday shopping online, visit www.smile.amazon.com. With every purchase made, Amazon donates a portion of the total cost to the charity of your choosing. There are close to one million charities to pick from. You still receive all of the same discounts as you would on the original Amazon site, but by using AmazonSmile, you are not only giving to people you know but also to those you don’t. eBay for Charity. It’s never a bad time to clean out the closet to make room for new things. It is, after all, gift-giving season. If you have a bit of extra time on your hands and get around to removing the items you no longer use, consider selling your items on eBay. The site will donate anywhere from 10 to 100 percent — your choice on percentage — of the sale price to the charity of your choice. Visit http://charity. ebay.com to get the ball rolling. The process is simple: Create an account if you don’t already have one, select a charity, decide how much you’re going to donate and then list your item. It’s a win-win-win situation! Heifer International. In lieu of gifts, many people will ask that a donation or a purchase be made on their behalf to a charity. There are plenty of options out there, but one to consider is Heifer International. This nonprofit organization aims to end world hunger and poverty. By visiting www.heifer.org and selecting their “Gift Catalog,” donors can purchase gifts for different holidays, including Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. There are also sections to donate to animals, women empowerment, basic needs and sustainable farming. Adopt a family. Living overseas naturally takes us out of our home-town environment. If you’re familiar with The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign, then you know it’s an easy way to support those in need. But just because you’re living in Europe doesn’t mean you can’t help other families during the holidays. The Salvation Army also has a program where people can adopt a family to

help out with a few extra items they might not be able to afford during the holidays. Families create a wish list, and people who adopt the family receive the list early in the holiday season. Germany’s Salvation Army branch is located in Cologne. Visit their website at www.heilsarmee.de to see options to volunteer or donate this holiday season. Locally, many Family Readiness Groups and spouses groups are doing “Angel Trees” and accepting donations for families who might need a little extra help this holiday season. Make your groceries pull double duty. Buy groceries that give back. Not only can you collect Box Tops for Education, which can give back 10 cents to the school of your choice, but consider purchasing items in which all profits and royalties from those products go to charitable causes. Company’s such as Newman’s Own donate all of their profits to charity. Tom’s of Maine, Stonyfield and Ben & Jerry’s all donate up to 10 percent of their profits to local charities. Don’t forget to contact your local commissary to find out how you can contribute to their annual Feds Feed Families campaign. Last year, Defense Commissary Agency employees and patrons donated over a million pounds of food and personal hygiene items for local food banks and pantries. Efforts are still needed and appreciated for families in need. Small gestures. If you’re looking for smaller-scale activities, there are plenty of ways to earn those good karma points and spread holiday cheer! • Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Catch up. Make each other laugh. • Pay for someone’s coffee, lunch, gas, etc. If they catch you in the act, simply ask that they “pay-it-forward.” • Give an unexpected generous tip to your server. • Bake some holiday cookies or goodies for your office or your neighbors. Not a baker? Just buy some cookies and decorate them nicely on a tray. They’ll never know the difference. • Smile at strangers. You’d be surprised how far a simple smile will go to make someone’s day. • Pay someone a genuine compliment. • Donate blood. • Donate to local food drives or clothing bins. • Shovel your neighbor’s driveway when it snows. • Work with your local units to donate time for gift-wrapping or a cookie drive.

German Christmas traditions by Annie Valentine Tintle Contributing writer Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s or some other popular winter celebration, most people celebrate some version of the holidays between the months of November and January. But if you think Americans are the only people who know how to light a yule log, think again. Germans practically invented Christmas. This country pulls out stops even Kris Kringle doesn’t have time for. From the extravagant Christmas markets to the steaming glühwein, there is enough festive cheer to warm even the scroogiest heart. For Americans abroad interested in reading up on the local celebrations, here are a few German traditions that are worth delving into this holiday season.

ditional Advent wreaths with 24 little gifts attached, the month of December in Germany is all about the countdown. Many Germans put a fresh holly wreath with four red candles out at the beginning of the month — sometimes decorated with baubles and sweets — to mark the time until Christmas Eve. Each Sunday in December before Christmas, families gather to light a new candle on the wreath; the last candle is lit on Dec. 24. You can find Advent calendars for children at the local supermarkets, and keep an eye out for those wreaths!

Christmas Trees

If you love the smell of cookies during the month of December, you have come to the right place. Many Germans set aside multiple evenings throughout the month to bake traditional fruitcakes, called “Stollen,” and gingerbread cookies, called “Lebkuchen.” If you would like to incorporate something different into your holiday feast this year, consider goose instead of turkey and “Kartoffelsalat,” “potato salad,” in place of mashed potatoes. And remember, sausages are welcome at every holiday meal.

Germans were the first people to introduce the “tree of life” into their holiday traditions. Many Americans have trees up and running by Dec. 1, but Germans usually put their trees up on Christmas Eve. The adults banish the children from the room while they decorate the “Baum,” “tree,” with bells, candy, crafts and homemade ornaments made from “Christbaumgebäck,” a white dough molded into tree decorations. Instead of spending the week between Christmas and New Year’s undoing their decor, the Germans enjoy their trees until Jan. 1 or even Jan. 6, also known as King’s Day in Germany. Remember to set your trees outside for the council tree pick-up, which arrives sometime after Jan. 6 to dipose of your old tree.

Advent Calendars

Gifts

Holiday Fo od

From cardboard pop outs to tra-

Gifts are spread throughout the

month of December like a sweet layer of marzipan. The holiday really takes off on Dec. 6, on Nikolaustag. On the eve of Dec. 5, children put a shoe or boot outside the door or shoes and socks on the window sill with letters and hopeful hearts. St. Nikolaus comes that night, bringing with him a big book of sins. He does the math and leaves treats for those who are good and twigs for those who are naughty. In some areas, he is accompanied by “Knecht Ruprecht” or “Krampus,” a big, horned monster that punishes naughty children. In other areas, he brings “Der schwarze Peter,” “Black Peter,” who carries a small whip. Children in this country better watch out because they will get more than coal for being naughty. Santa isn’t the only one who brings presents. Sometime during the evening of Dec. 24 after the tree is decorated, a bell jingles, signaling that the Christkind — a gorgeous girl or boy or big man, depending on what part of Germany you’re in — has successfully delivered the gifts. Some say it’s Santa. Instead of the nail-biting 12-hour wait for Santa Claus, children in Germany open their main course of gifts that night. Christmas Day is reserved for religious services and quiet family time instead of stockings and wrapping paper.

Friends

Dec. 26 is St. Stephen’s Day, when friends visit each other’s homes and declare “Ein schöner Baum!” or, “Nice tree!” before

moving on to the next house. While Christmas Day is for family, Dec. 26 is for friends and is considered an equally important part of the holiday celebration. Some Germans use this day as a time to help those in need.

Gift Exchanges

Sometimes in Germany, secret gifts are exchanged between classmates or co-workers. During school or work parties, a door is cracked open and all the gifts are thrown into the room and passed around until each finds it’s respective owner. It is considered bad luck to find out who sent you your present.

Caroling

Sometime between Dec. 27 and Jan. 6, which is King’s Day, boys and girls take a day to dress up as kings and move through the village caroling. There are traditionally four children, three dressed as Magi and one carrying a star on a stick. They collect money and mark the houses they visit with white chalk. If you’ve seen the initials “C, M and H” or “B” plus a set of numbers inscribed over your door frame, now you know why — they are the initials of the three kings plus a record of the year. It is considered bad luck to wash the chalk away. Whether your holiday includes trips to Globus or brown paper packages tied up by Amazon, don’t forget to dig into the rich local heritage Germany offers during this Christmas season and celebrate with your friends — American and German style!

Holiday alternatives to turkey by Thomas Warner Contributing writer If it seems like each holiday meal has become repetitive or if you simply want to try something a little different for your next big gathering, here a few recipes that can be used as alternatives to the standard turkey dinner. Turkey is traditional and maintains a familiarity with many of those who love to cook, but mixing things up can spark interest when families and friends gather during the holidays and can also be a source of good memories to reflect on in later years.

Lemon Pepper Mackerel

Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 8 • 3 large mackerel fish • 2 tablespoons butter with infused basil • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning, mixed with crushed peppercorns • 1 jar hollandaise sauce Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Rinse the fish and pat dry before lying them side-by-side on metal or glass baking trays. Spread butter evenly over both sides of each of the fish, then handsprinkle the lemon pepper mix atop both of the buttered sides of the fish. Place fish in the oven and bake 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove from the oven and liber-

ally spread the hollandaise sauce onto both sides. Replace in the oven and continue baking at 350 F for 20 more minutes. (Recipe submitted by Cindy Warner, New Orleans, Louisiana)

Chuck Roast

Start to finish: 2 1/2 hours, once thawed Servings: 8 • 5-pound roast • 2 whole garlic bulbs, chopped • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon pepper • 3 rosemary sprigs • 4 potatoes, chopped • 4 carrots, chopped Thaw and/or let roast set in a refrigerator for at least 24 hours, then set out for 30 minutes prior to preparation. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Carve small slices into the meat all around the exterior. Stuff each slit with pieces of chopped garlic. The garlic should be distributed evenly around and throughout the expanse of the roast. Once the meat is cut and infused with the garlic pieces, liberally sprinkle salt and pepper all over the top, then flip it over and do the same to the bottom side.

Flip the roast back upright and prepare to bake by placing inside a roasting bag. The roast can be cooked without a bag, but using one will create a gravy juice that can be poured over the meat when serving. Inside the bag, sprinkle a few rosemary sprigs all around the meat and add the cut potatoes and carrots before sealing the package. If you don’t use a roasting bag, simply follow the same steps and cook instead in the roasting pan. Place the roast in the oven. Using a meat thermometer to check temperature, bake the roast until the temperature of the middle of the roast is 160 F, approximately 1 to 2 hours. (Recipe submitted by Erica Holloway, Collinsville, Mississippi)

Spiraled Ham

Start to finish: 2 hours Servings: 8 • 5-pound spiraled ham • 1/4 cup cloves, ground or diced • 1/2 cup brown sugar • 1 can pineapples, sliced and circular Heath the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the ham in a baking pan and put scattered cloves inside the various layers of the spiraled ham. Next, sprinkle brown sugar on

top of the ham and pat all over the surface. Open the can of pineapple and pour the juice all across the entire ham, including into the various layers. Then cover the ham with the whole pineapple slices. Cook for 60 to 90 minutes, turning and basting periodically while it cooks so the ham doesn’t dry out. (Recipe submitted by Judi Vlassis, Santa Cruz, California)

Cornish Game Hens

Start to finish: 2 hours Servings: 8 • 4 cornish game hens • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon pepper • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash the hens well in a sink and pat dry with a paper towel. Hens need to be dried well before other ingredients are applied. Rub or brush each hen with olive oil. Sprinkle a light covering of seasoned salt, followed by salt, pepper and garlic powder, sparingly. Be sure to turn the birds over during preparation to ensure full covering with all the seasonings. Cook for approximately 70 to 90 minutes, checking to ensure the birds are cooking through completely and are not overcooking. (Recipe submitted by Lauren Reeves, San Antonio, Texas)

Winter Wonderland Getaways Places to go for a weekend holiday with the family

by Azure Hall Contributing writer The winter holiday season is a popular travel period in Europe. Christmas markets in and around Germany draw large crowds from the KMC, but they are not your only options. Low-priced airfare and Europe’s interconnected rail system make many cultures and attractions well within your reach. Here are a few alternative destinations for your winter getaways that will not disappoint.

Interlaken, Switzerland

Interlaken is Switzerland’s “city between the lakes,” nestled in the Swiss Alps of the Bernese Oberland region of central Switzerland. The twin lakes, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, sparkle as they reflect the surrounding mountains that hold numerous hiking and skiing trails. Interlaken also holds history in the form of its monastery, which was active from 1133 until 1528 but is still open to the public. Though small, Interlaken is the perfect place to rest up before or after the hectic holiday season.

London, United Kingdom

Each of London’s famous attractions, from Big Ben to the London Eye, looks even more attractive when the city is blanketed in snow. London Christmas markets also draw a crowd. “The Christmas markets in London are so different from the ones in Germany,” said Jasmine

Browne, wife of Staff Sgt. Cliff Browne. “My family and I try to make a trip there every year.” While Christmas markets are fun, the true culmination of Christmas in London is found in Trafalgar Square, home of the capital’s biggest Christmas tree. Christmas carol services envelope the tree for the entire month of December, and families are encouraged to attend.

enjoy performances of Christmas carols and the New Year Gala. The culmination of Vienna’s winter concert season is “The New Year’s Concert” at the city’s Golden Hall of the Musikverein. Vienna is the perfect place to introduce children to the world of arts and culture. Rather than attend another production of the Nutcracker, visit Volksoper Wien, Vienna’s most popular opera house, for Hansel and Gretel, the classic story by the Grimm Brothers. Children will be drawn in by the beauty of the production, and families can relive the experience when they read the fairy tale for bedtime afterwards.

Bruges, Belgium

Prague, Czech Republic

Bruges is the picture of a European fairy tale. Medieval buildings, cobbled streets and glistening canals come together to transport visitors into the past. Bruges is famous for the floodlighting of evening sunsets that emphasize the picturesque layout. If traveling in the winter, visitors have the city almost entirely to themselves, as it is the slow season for tourism. See the famous Belfort or any of the city’s museums without fighting the crowds during the holidays.

Vienna, Austria

Vienna is the perfect destination for arts fans of all ages. Classical music enthusiasts can attend concerts at the Vienna Concert House, where they will

Franz Kafka once said, “Prague never lets you go. This dear little mother has sharp claws.” This couldn’t be more true in the winter season. Prague is another city with minimal tourism during the winter, so heavy foot traffic won’t be an issue. The gas-lit street lamps and warm cafe hot chocolate more than make up for the cold. Visit Prague Castle, take the children ice skating in the city center or meander through Prague’s unique take on Christmas markets. Family fun waits around every corner. Any one of these destinations would make for an outstanding family holiday in Europe. Do not let the cold keep you shut up indoors!

by Katie F. Boltuch Contributing writer The fall season is in full swing with winter rapidly approaching. The desire to stay put in your warm home on your comfy couch probably sounds more appealing than going out in chilly weather. Less daylight and colder temperatures tend to have most of us retreat inside accompanied by the latest Netflix series with some warm cocoa or Gluehwein. Sounds nice, right? Let’s face it, it’s just harder to get motivated and stay motivated this time of year. The sun rises later and sets earlier, which leaves most of us with either a dark morning workout or a dark afternoon workout. If you’re like me, waking up on cold mornings is not exactly your idea of a good morning, especially when it’s still dark. The sun isn’t awake, why should I be? I also hate leaving a perfectly warm bed. Add in the fact that the holiday season brings an excess of everything — food, drinks, etc. — and you’ve got yourself a perfect recipe for weight gain. So how can we avoid those dreaded extra pounds? Have no fear, some good ideas are here! Make time for your best time. At some point in the day, make time to exercise. According to the American Heart Association, it is best to not only make the time to work out but to also find the best time for you. Some people prefer to get moving first thing in the morning because they don’t have to sit around all day thinking about working out later. Others prefer that extra hour of sleep in the morning because they just can’t function until they’ve had their

Kaiserslautern American

coffee. Either way, as long as you’re making time to get moving, you’re on the right track. Bonus Tip: If you do want to be an early morning exerciser, try adjusting the temperature in your bedroom a few degrees warmer to make it easier to leave the warmth of your bed. Brave the elements. Go outside! According to research published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise, in cold temperatures race times are actually faster, and the quicker your pace, the more calories you’ll burn. Additionally, that harder, faster workout can spike your endorphin levels, which, according to a review in Environmental Science and Technology, are already increased just by you being outside. We’ve all heard that the best offense is a good defense, so prepare yourself for whatever is happening outside.

Wearing layers is your best offense. The American Osteopathic Association recommends starting with a thin synthetic material, such as polypropylene, to draw sweat away from your body. Your second layer should be an insulating layer, preferably a fleece, which will keep you warm but also allow water vapor to pass through. Your final layer should be a waterproof, breathable outer layer to protect you from the winter elements. Use technology. My father is a gadget guy. He always has the latest gizmo. So when he bought a step counter to track how many steps he was taking on a daily basis, he said it encouraged him to do more. Not only can technology be cool, but it can also hold you accountable. It will also help if you make your goals known to friends, family, strangers, etc. Tell people you are going to work out on Facebook, Twitter, a blog or even an online community. This should strengthen your resolve, especially since you already told everyone your plans to workout. Can’t back out now, right? A d d i t i o n a l l y, technology can help motivate you through your workout. Many phones offer a variety of tracking and pacing apps. Tracking apps help keep a schedule that will give you something to look forward to. Music to move to. There are times

November 25, 2016

when I just do not want to go out during the winter. It’s cold. It’s usually damp. The couch is comfy, and those episodes of “Friends” are not going to watch themselves! One thing that always gets me motivated is putting together a playlist with music that makes me want to move. Can’t think of any good music? Ask friends or family for suggestions. You can also turn to the internet for playlist ideas. You are sure to find plenty of suggestions. Turn your home into a gym. If you can’t get yourself to the gym, you can always exercise at home. Between DVDs, MP3s, TV, online workouts — many of which are free — and podcasts, you really have no excuse. Starting small with just a few pushups, lunges, squats and crunches can help get you going. If that doesn’t work, try to recruit your family or spouse to workout with you. Having someone else to motivate you can also give you that extra push. You can also get your whole family involved by challenging them with fitness-focussed video games. This for that. During the holidays, I tend to follow a rule that usually helps to keep me in check with my eating and exercising. It basically goes like this: If I eat these three slices of pumpkin pie — which, believe me, I can and will do — then I have to do something to get myself moving later or tomorrow. It sounds silly, but it definitely keeps me from overindulging, especially when I know I don’t want to workout the next day.

by Katie F. Boltuch Contributing writer Maybe this is your first Christmas market season in Germany or maybe you feel like you’ve visited every one you can handle. What if I told you about one that is underground? When I say underground I don’t mean it’s a secret. I mean it is literally in caves! About six weeks before Christmas, the small Dutch town of Valkenburg, Netherlands, transforms its famous Velvet Caves called “Fluweelengrot” into a Christmas market and Santa’s residence. These passageways date back to the 12th century and are directly below the remains of the city’s castle. They are lined with lights and decorations where you can shop at more than 60 stalls offering unique handmade crafts and traditional holiday food. It is the oldest, largest and most visited underground Christmas market in Europe. In 2015, CNN’s website named Valkenburg one of fifteen top places to visit for the Christmas season. The Huffington Post United Kingdom’s online travel section named Valkenburg one of nine totally unique Christmas markets last year, as well. Now in its 31st year, visitors can enjoy galleries and sculptures while listening to the echoing voices of carol singers below the famous Cauberg hill. Strolling through the caves, you might catch a glimpse of the many beautiful murals lining the walls. The Velvet

Caves are home to sculptures dating back to Roman times. There is even an 18th century chapel. If you’re just a window shopper, there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy. Within the caves are informative tales about marlstone and the history behind the sculptures. There are films and interactive tablets for patrons to observe. For a more in-depth look, be sure not to miss the special film created by the marlstone wizard, Mergeltovenaar, where he’ll sketch the Christmas story into the stone! You’ll even be able to create your own souvenir made from marlstone. When you’re in need of some fresh air, there are a variety of activities above ground, including a sand sculpture display, Sinterklaas Village and a Christmas parade every Wednesday and Saturday evening in the town center. Kids will enjoy the Fairytale Forest, where the can meet the forest’s inhabitants, explore the inside of the Dangerous Dragon Cave and watch an indoor puppet show. Cost is €7.50; children under 2 years are free. For more information about the Fairytale Forest, check out their website at www.sprookjesbos.nl/ activiteiten/. If you’re more interested in wine and food tasting, don’t miss out on the Route D’Amuse. This walk takes you through Valkenburg, all while

enjoying delicious food from five renowned restaurants. Cost is €11.50 per person. Information for the walk is available on their website at www.route-damuse.nl. Valkenburg is the perfect option for a day trip. The drive is about three hours from the KMC area. The Christmas market is open

Page 9

through Dec. 23. Sunday through Thursday it is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday it is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. On the final day of the market, Dec. 23, hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The market costs €7 for adults 12 and older, €5 for children 5 to 11 years old, and children

under 5 years old are free. Dogs are not permitted during the Christmas market, with the exception of guide or assistance dogs. The entire trail is wheelchair accessible. All proceeds benefit Foundation Valkenburg Castle. For more information, visit www.kerststadvalkenburg.nl.

Selecting a meaningful holiday gift by Katie F. Boltuch Contributing writer

Graphic by Naddya/Shutterstock.com

The holiday season is upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about what to get your spouse or loved ones. If you’re like me, you have that one family member who is simply impossible to buy for. Does “I don’t need anything this year, just you” sound familiar? One thing I’ve always been good at, if I may brag a bit, is selecting gifts for friends and family — even for people like my father who seem to have everything. If you haven’t purchased any holiday gifts or are totally at a loss as to what to get for your significant other or loved ones, I’d like to share some personal tips as well as ideas from others on how to select that perfect and meaningful present.

Know your audience. More often than not, we select a gift for others based on what we would want rather than what they would want. Take a step back and really think about the person. Have they already mentioned something they would want? If not, the next thing to do is to think about that person — what are their interests, hobbies, etc.

What are their interests? What do they enjoy? Although it seems logical, we don’t always consider the hobbies of our loved ones. Does your spouse like to fix things? Maybe there’s a tool they’ve wanted for a while or they need a new tool chest. Have they mentioned something they might be interested in starting, such as fishing or scrapbooking? A subscription to magazines or even a beginner book on the subject could help. For example, when my sister was learning how to knit, I bought her a how-to book as well as a few different kinds of yarn. This gave her an opportunity to learn more about the various styles of knitting, the fabric and how to design new items.

Give them an experience. The actual gift doesn’t always have to be tangible. “If they have tons of stuff then try to do an

experience — a pass to the zoo, a sports game, etc.,” suggested Katie Reynolds from Miesenbach. Do they like music? Maybe their favorite musician or band has a concert or event coming up they might enjoy. Do they like art or history? Buy them tickets to a museum they’ve always wanted to go to but haven’t had a chance. Do they love watching sports? Instead of getting them a jersey or another element of sports paraphernalia, maybe think about a subscription to a magazine or sport network, such as NFL Ticket. You could also consider sending them on a scavenger hunt for their gift. The search for the gift can add to the adventure and make the experience memorable.

Sometimes simple is the best option. Thanks to websites like Pinterest and Etsy, you are all but sure to find simple answers to your dilemma. Do your in-laws have a favorite vacation destination or location they love to visit? Think about framing a picture or drawing of some of these places. What about a formal family picture? No need to break the bank on this one either. Ask a friend to help with pictures, upload the picture to a user-friendly website like Shutterfly to edit photos, make canvas prints or create a picture album. It’s a heartfelt gift that never goes out of style.

Do it yourself. The holidays can get a bit busy so this may not be a great option, but if you have the time and resources, sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones we make ourselves. Referring back to Pinterest, there are boards for everything and anything you can think of with regards to DIY gifts. From creating a family scrapbook, mounting pictures in a frame or even creating a cookbook of all your family recipes as a keepsake, help is there for you! Additionally, you can also find some great ideas if you can’t think of any yourself.

Home is where the military sends us. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? One of the things my husband and I do is send trinkets from each new location we live. Karlie Gaspard from Birkenfeld agreed, explaining that since she’s been living in Germany, her and her husband have been sending German-themed gifts to family and friends. Of course, if you’ve been in Germany for more than a year you may have already thought of this, but you should also consider gifts from the places you visit while you’re living overseas. If you’re planning a vacation soon or are about to go on one, think about things that your family or loved ones might enjoy that you can only get in those destinations.

Consider gift cards. I shudder at the thought of this because I’ve always thought of these as impersonal, but sometimes they can be very thoughtful. “Last year we got my parents a Home Depot gift card cause they needed to get work done on the house,” explained Brooke Sands from Bann. Does that special someone really need a break? A gift card or certificate for a massage or spa day would be appropriate. What if you know a store the person likes to shop at but you aren’t quite sure what to get them? This is when a gift card would be appropriate.

Use the internet. There are a variety of great websites that can help with selecting a gift. One of my go-to sites is www.uncommongoods.com. This site not only has awesome gift suggestions, but you are also likely to find some of the most unique presents you’ve ever seen. Another site is www.gifts.com/finder. When you visit this site, you’ll be prompted to answer a few questions based on the personality of the person you’re shopping for. Do the short quiz and peruse their suggestions. If all else fails, check to see if they’ve made an Amazon Wish List. Simply go to www.amazon.com and search for their name or email under the Wish List section. Graphic by WEN WEN/Shutterstock.com

Throwing the Perfect Party New Year’s Eve Edition by Azure Hall Contributing writer New Year’s Eve, or “Silvester” as the Germans say, is a popular holiday for celebrations around the world. However, the combination of post-December holiday exhaustion, a late night out, champagne drinking-induced dehydration and midnight snack cravings can ruin a good party faster than the Times Square ball can drop. Here are some helpful tips to keep your guests hydrated, fed and happy. Jessica Dulkis, self-proclaimed “party professional” and wife of Staff Sgt. Evan Dulkis, has thrown successful holiday parties for years. Her first piece of advice is to start early. “Proper planning is the key to any successful party,” Dulkis said. “I start jotting down party ideas and making shopping lists almost as soon as Thanksgiving is over.” With all of the other stresses throughout the holiday season, the last thing that you will want to do is try to make all of your preparations in the narrow time slot between Dec. 26 and 31. Choosing a party theme makes every other decision easier. Food, decoration and activity ideas are narrowed down once a theme is chosen. While planning your New Year’s Eve party, take into consideration what your guests want. Come up with three to five theme ideas and ask guests to vote on which theme they think would be most enjoyable. “I attended a Great Gatsby-themed New Year’s Eve party once, and the theme really made the party,” Dulkis said. “We danced to the movie soundtrack and acted out scenes from the book.” Another important aspect of party prep is giving notice to your neighbors. No one likes to be kept up all night by the sound of a party they didn’t attend. “You don’t want to ruin a long happy relationship with your neighbors by disregarding their feelings,” Dulkis said. Alerting neighbors is especially important when throwing a party in Germany. Quiet hours in this country are from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weekdays, and while New Year’s Eve falls on a Saturday this year, not everyone will be in a partying mood. Young children still have bedtimes, and not everyone plans to be up until midnight. Be sure to include activities. Gone are the days of childhood when attending a party is an activity in itself. Games and contests keep guests busy and help the minutes until midnight fly by. Costume contests, for example, let the party fun begin before the night even starts. Refrain from focusing the night solely around drinking alcohol to keep everyone safe and present. Don’t forget to feed your guests. Setting out a decent spread of food will keep the champagne from going to guests’ heads and keep designated drivers from getting disgruntled. “There is nothing that ruins a good party faster than hungry guests,” Dulkis said. Provide vegetarian and lighter options along with traditional party foods, such as a vegetable tray or fruit salad, to avoid heavy food overload. If the cost of feeding a larger number of guests is a concern, ask that guests bring a dish to share. Potlucks provide diversity of food and keep host’s expenses low. Most important of all, have a plan for any guests that may be drinking alcohol at your party. Allow guests to spend the night, ensure the presence of designated drivers, provide phone numbers of taxi services or make use of a driving service. Armed Forces Against Drunk Driving provides designated driving services out of Ramstein and can be found at www.ramstein. af.mil/ari/index.asp. Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!

The good thing is, when it comes to Christmas and the holidays, Germany has got you covered. Christmas is one of its biggest holiday seasons. It’s so big and special, they actually start celebrating anywhere from four to five weeks ahead of the actual day.

The Drink of the Season by Nicole Karsch-Meibom Contributing writer In a few plain words, glühwein is a mulled wine — a wine combined with spices and typically served warm. And those who have tried it know how to enjoy it: outside with friends on a wintry evening, when the air is crisp, daylight has gone early and a scent of cinnamon and cloves fills the air. When the drink’s sweet heat saturates your body, you know that Christmas is right around the corner. Whatever the national name — Nordig Glögg, British mulled wine or Romanian Vin Fiert — glühwein has a long tradition. One of the oldest cookery books, “De Re Coquinaria,” of Ancient Rome, shows how to prepare “Conditum Paradoxum,” a spiced wine served hot. The Austrian versions are called “jager tea” and “punsch.” Though the latter actually originates from an Indian beverage made from sugar, spices and water, jager tea is an Austrian speciality prepared with rum and has become a popular apresski drink in the Alps. Fortunately, there are many versions of glühwein, even some without alcohol, so everybody can enjoy this seasonal drink. Once the winter season has arrived, many people flock to the nearest Christmas market to enjoy a glass of glühwein. On average, a cup of glühwein costs €2, which doesn’t include the additional €2 “pfand,” or deposit, that is charged on each mug. The deposit is returned to you after you return the glass. If you prefer to drink this treat at home, check out these recipes. The simple and original version is quick and easy: Mix 3/4 liter of red

wine and 1/4 liter of water, three cloves, two cinnamon sticks, and two pieces of star anise and heat it up slowly without boiling. Cut one lemon and 1/2 orange into slices and add them. Leave the heat on for one hour, then remove the fruits and spices and finally season it with sugar to taste. This recipe can be adjusted to personal taste. Some people add one liter of water and one liter of red wine with 1/4 liter brandy, two angostura bitters and one spoon full of cardamon, instead of star anise and lemon. ✶✶✶ You can also purchase the pre-mixed glühwein and add a bit of rum and amaretto, seven cloves, two sticks of cinnamon and slices of orange. ✶✶✶ Another option is to combine one liter of dry white wine with the contents of a vanilla stick, 50 grams of dried cranberries or sour cherries and four spoons of maple sirup. ✶✶✶ For “kinder glühwein,” the non-alcoholic version for kids, there are also many versions: Mix 1.5 liter of fruit tea (e.g. cherry tea) with 3/4 liter of grape juice, then add two cloves, a bit of cinnamon, two spoons of lemon juice and sugar. If cooking isn’t your cup of glühwein, there is always help around the corner. Most supermarkets will offer bottles of glühwein with or without alcohol or “glühfix,” an infusion bag with a mixture of spices. Just heat the wine or juice, add the bag and let it simmer. Finally, don’t forget to drink it outside; there is nothing like a warming cup of glühwein when it’s freezing cold outside.

by Azure Hall Contributing writer Living abroad can be complicated. Shopping, traveling and working overseas can be vastly different from life in the United States. One way to simplify the transition is knowledge and understanding of local and national holidays in Germany. Many German holidays are based on religious or traditional beliefs. While some overlap with American holidays, others may be unfamiliar. Here is a list of upcoming 2017 German national and RheinlandPfalz-specific holidays. January 1: New Year’s Day While New Year’s Eve is observed as a silent day in Germany, New Year’s Day is the day that shoppers need to be aware of. It is a national holiday and many businesses around the country will be closed. April 17: Easter Monday As in America, Easter Sunday is celebrated as Easter day in Germany, but in the form of a silent day. Since many businesses around Germany are already closed on Sundays, the

holiday is also celebrated nationally on the following Monday, when businesses will stay closed. May 1: Labor Day Labor Day is a celebration of the international labor movement and workers’ rights. It is a national holiday observed across all German states. Businesses will be closed on this day. May 25: Ascension Day On the national holiday of Ascension Day, Christians across Germany attend special church services to celebrate Jesus ascension into heaven after the crucifixion. Ascension Day is also known as Men’s Day or Father’s Day in certain areas of Germany. In these regions, groups of male friends or relatives spend the day together, usually participating in outdoor activities such as hikes or bike rides. Ascension Day is a national holiday across Germany, and all business will be closed. June 5: Whit Day Whit Monday, also known as Monday of the Holy Spirit, is the national holiday celebrated the day

after Pentecost, which is a movable religious feast in the Christian calendar. The date changes each year because it is determined by Easter. Businesses will be closed on this day. June 15: Corpus Christi Day Corpus Christi Day is a regional religious German holiday that is celebrated in Rheinland-Pfalz. This holiday is celebrated with a special church service on Corpus Christi and the sacrament blessing. All businesses in the area will be closed. October 3: German Unity Day German Unity Day is the nation’s main holiday. Celebrated annually on Oct. 3, this holiday memorializes the anniversary of Germany’s national reunification in 1990. German unity was a goal of the nation initiated in the 1800s and recognized on this date over a century later. Businesses will be closed to observe the holiday. October 31: 500 years Reformation Day Martin Luther nailed his “95 Theses” to the door of a Roman Catholic Church on Oct. 31, 1517,

highlighting the church’s practice of allowing pardons from sin to be bought. This sparked a larger public debate, resulting in many Christians breaking from the Roman Catholic Church. With 2017 being the 500-year anniversary of the start of this reformation, Oct. 31 will be observed as a national holiday across Germany. Businesses will be closed on this day. November 1: All Saints Day All Saints Day, also known as All Souls Day or All Hallows, is a Roman-Catholic holiday that commemorates those deemed by the Catholic Church to have attained full sainthood in Heaven. All Saints Day is a local silence day celebrated in Rheinland-Pfalz, with business closed in observance. December 25 and 26: Christmas Day and Second Christmas Day Just as in America, Germans celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Dec. 25. However, they extend this to a two-day celebration through Dec. 26. Businesses on the economy will be closed on both days.

A Fighting Family: Two cultures become one Story and photo by Azure Hall Contributing Writer Military service overseas leads to the intermingling of cultures, culture shock and sometimes love. Finding love was the case for one Air Force couple stationed in Germany, and it has led to quite a few fights between the two of them. Staff Sgt. Jon Garrett and his wife, Daniela — Dani for short, first met a little over seven years ago. Daniela was a taekwondo fighter for the German national team, and Jon was an Airman in the United States Air Force, recently stationed at Ramstein. Mutual friends brought the two together for a blind date, and sparks began to fly. Dani had a well-established life here in her home country of Germany. She fought for the German national team for six years, winning over fifty awards from competitions all around the world. The most prestigious of her accomplishments was winning Junior European Champion for the German national team. Her career, friends and family were all here. Jon, on the other hand, was just beginning his life in Germany. He had left the United States behind. Newly here on orders, his first tour in Germany, he was trying to meet people and get himself settled abroad. Military life can be both rewarding and demanding, and he was quickly rising to the pressures of his role here. Fast forward a few months and the two are going steady. Similar personalities and a growing love carried them through the various tumults of cultural differences, including an early language barrier.

Just when things were getting comfortable, Dani presented Jon with an ultimatum. “I won’t choose between my love for fighting and my love for you,” Dani said. When asked about her decision to do so, Dani replied, “I knew that it was something that I had to let him know early on. It wasn’t going to be easy to maintain my professional fighting career and be wife and mother to a family.” Jon quickly accepted her conditions for a continued relationship and began conditioning of his own. His childhood martial arts experience allowed him to easily transition into the life of a fighter. The next few years were full: a wedding, the birth of a child, their first permanent change of station to New Mexico, a long year apart while Jon was in South Korea, and a renewal of vows. Today, both of the Garretts are double blackbelts as well as business owners, with a school of martial arts of their own right here in Rheinland-Pfalz. His voluntary year in South Korea allowed Jon to choose Germany as his next base, bringing Dani and their multicultural daughter, Leyla, home to her country. The two then began to build a life in Germany once again, this time together. “Opening our own martial arts school was a big part of that,” Dani said. “Jon helped me to live my dreams while remaining active duty, and now we can do it together.” Jon and Dani currently offer a wide range of classes, including taekwondo and mixed martial arts, through their small business, Legacy Sports School, operated out of HealthFit24 in Mackenbach, just a short drive from Ramstein.

The duo strives to serve military members and their families while living in Germany. “We saw a need in the military community and wanted to give back our passion and love for the sport,” Jon said. “Martial arts is especially good for kids as it provides a place to learn important tenets of life, like courtesy, integrity,

perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit.” These are all qualities that will serve military children well as they adapt to the unique challenges of growing up in a military home. The one piece of advice Jon and Dani offer to people moving to Germany, or any overseas base, for the first time is to “always be open

to trying new things. Don’t be afraid to travel and see the world with the ones you love.” Speaking from her own experience, Dani added, “It is harder to find friends in a new place than it is when you’re home. Make the effort to meet new people and cherish the limited time that you have with them.”

by Ashley Dobson Contributing writer It’s winter squash season in Germany. Known as Kürbis, the same German word used for pumpkin, you can find several varieties filling the baskets at any local grocery store or commissary and lining the stands at the famers markets around town. Winter squashes are distinguished from summer squashes not because of the time of year they are grown and sold but because of when they are best to eat. Right now they have matured fully and their skins have developed a tough rind. This rind protects them and allows them to be stored throughout the winter, thus “winter squash.” While there are some winter squashes common in America that can’t be found in Germany, we are particularly lucky because two of the most delicious squashes are the most prevalent over here — hokkaido squash and butternut squash. Butternut squash is sweet and nutty with a firm texture similar to that of a potato. Hokkaido squash, also known as Red Kuri, looks like a mini pumpkin and is sweet, moist and dense. The skin is edible and does not need to be peeled. Both of these squashes are versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes to enjoy all winter long. Spiced Hokkaido Squash Soup You can’t spend a holiday season in Germany without having at least one bowl of hokkaido squash soup. This is a bit labor intensive, but every spoonful will be worth it. Start to finish: 60 minutes Servings: 6 • 1 medium onion, chopped • 3 tablespoons olive oil • 1 hokkaido squash, de-seeded and cut into pieces • 2 small potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces • 2 cloves garlic, chopped • 2 teaspoons curry powder • 1 teaspoon ground coriander • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 6 cups chicken stock • Salt and pepper, to taste Over medium heat, gently saute chopped onions with olive oil in a large saucepan until soft. Add the chopped hokkaido squash, potatoes, garlic and the four spices to the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock. Begin by just covering the top of the hokkaido pieces with the stock. If you feel it is too thick, you can add in more later. Cover and simmer until the squash and potatoes are tender and soft. This should take about 10 to 12 minutes. Using a hand blender in the pan, puree the squash and potatoes until smooth and creamy. Add in more chicken stock to achieve desired soup texture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Ladle the soup into bowls. You can garnish with creme fraiche and croutons if you so choose. (Recipe from www.LePetitOgre.com)

Southwestern Stuffed Hokkaido Squash Now you can mix the taste of home with this German specialty squash. This recipe is also easily converted to a vegetarian dish just by taking out the ground turkey. Start to finish: 90 minutes Servings: 4 • 2 hokkaido squashes • 1 pound ground turkey • 1 small onion, chopped • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped • 1 clove garlic, minced • 1 tablespoon chili powder • 1 teaspoon ground cumin • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, chopped • 15-ounce can black beans • 1/2 teaspoon salt • Hot red pepper sauce, to taste • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Cut the hokkaido squashes in half horizontally. Scoop out and discard seeds. Place the squash cut side down on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until tender, between 30 and 45 minutes. While the squash is cooking, lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Add the ground turkey and cook until lightly browned. Add onion and bell pepper to the skillet, stirring often, and cooking until softened. Stir in garlic, chili powder and cumin for about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, beans, salt and several dashes of hot sauce. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until the tomatoes are broken down. This should take between 10 and 12 minutes. When the squashes are tender, take them out of the oven. Fill the squash halves with the turkey mixture and top with cheese. Place them back in the oven until the filling is heated through and the cheese is melted, about 5 to 8 minutes. (Recipe adapted from www.EatingWell.com) Curry Beef Stuffed Hokkaido Squash This incredibly filling squash makes for an excellent weeknight meal. The flavors seem counterintuitive, but they blend together nicely in this dish. Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 2 • 1 hokkaido squash • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1/2 onion, chopped • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped • 1/2 pound ground beef • 2 teaspoons curry powder • Salt, to taste • Ground black pepper, to taste • 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190

degrees Celsius. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Cut the hokkaido squash in half horizontally. Scoop out and discard seeds. Place the squash cut side down on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until tender, between 30 and 45 minutes. Meanwhile, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the onion, garlic, mushrooms, beef, curry powder, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are cooked and beef is browned. Add the spinach and cook until it’s just wilted. Once the squash is tender, remove it from the oven. Scoop the filling into the squash halves and serve. (Recipe adapted from www.CookItUpPaleo.com) Twice-Baked Butternut Squash This creamy delight will make your tastebuds and your stomach incredibly happy. Every bite feels decadent despite the dish’s health factor — the perfect treat. Start to finish: 80 minutes Servings: 2 • 2 butternut squashes • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter • 1 yellow onion, chopped • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt • 8 large sage leaves, finely chopped • 1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit or 220 degrees Celsius. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Slice the stems off the butternut squashes and cut each squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Place the squash halves cut side down on the lined baking sheet. Roast until the cut side of the squash is tender when pierced with a fork. This should take about 35 to 45 minutes. While the squashes are roasting, melt the butter in a nonstick pan over low heat. Add the onion and salt and saute until browned at the edges. Stir in the chopped sage and saute another 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and set aside. When the squashes are tender, remove them from the oven and turn the cut sides up. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Keep the oven on. Once the squash is cool enough to handle, the insides need to be scooped into a large bowl. With this recipe, we are only refilling two squash halves. On these two, leave a 1/2-inch border so they retain their shape. The other two halves can be completely scooped out and their skins discarded. With a potato masher, mash the roasted squash. Add in the cooked onions and sage, ricotta cheese, Greek yogurt, parmesan cheese and pepper and thoroughly combine. Scoop the mixture into the two remaining squash halves and return to the oven until the tops begin to brown. This should take about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

“‘A Christmas Story’ — It’s pretty much everybody’s favorite, about a little kid who wants a BB-gun for Christmas, and his parents don’t want him to get it. It goes through different things with the kid at school and funny things that happen to him. It reminds me of when I was a kid, and I was the youngest brother. We’d always shoot BB-guns and do that sort of stuff. It’s a funny movie, but it also reminds me of my childhood, as well.”

Senior Airman Anthony Oldham “‘Elf’ — With Will Farrell realizing he’s not actually an elf, so he goes to find his real dad and bring the spirit of Christmas to everyone. I guess I love it because me and my siblings back home in Arizona have always watched it every year. It’s a good time. My parents like to watch it too. It’s always funny.”

Spc. Katlyn James “‘A Christmas Story’ — It’s my favorite movie personally because it was kind of a tradition growing up.

Have you been naughty or nice? by Annie Valentine Contributing writer

Children all over the world are counting the days until Santa Claus makes his big appearance. But more importantly, they all know he is watching. Santa sees everything. We recently interviewed a group of children in the KMC to find out a little more about what they consider naughty and what is nice. They gave us the insider scoop on good and bad behavior and the best ways to get what you want for Christmas. So what is naughty? “Pinching!” said Josh, 7. “Punchin’ people in the face,” said Rex, 8. “Saying you’re going to kick somebody in the eye,” said June, 5. “Sometimes I choke people in the car,” said Cole, 4.

“That’s really naughty.” The group agreed that hurting other people in any way is a sure fire way to get yourself on Santa’s naughty list. It seems children had better watch out and keep their hands to themselves or Santa probably won’t deliver. “Not doing my chores at home,” said Shayla, 7. “And disobeying your parents,” Josh said. The children agreed that during the month of December it’s best to follow directions at home and do what your mom or dad ask without causing problems. “One time when I was little at Christmas I opened everybody’s presents,” June added. “Santa thought that was pretty bad, so I don’t do that anymore.” Right behind chores and disobeying their parents came not eating their dinner. “Like, when you don’t eat your vegetables, like broccoli, fruit, all that kind of food,” said Jake, 10. They all agreed eating healthy food is important to Santa, and children should try

hard to eat their dinner every night. “You should eat Thanksgiving turkey,” Rex added. “That’s good. But don’t eat it when it’s cold or you’ll get worms.” Worms can really ruin Christmas. Santa doesn’t just want children to avoid being naughty during the year; he wants them to practice being nice. So, we asked, what does a kid have to do to get on Santa’s nice list? The first suggestion was looking out for others who are sad. “If you’re at the playground and somebody is sad that nobody wants to play with him or her,” June said, “you could, like, go over and say, ‘Do you want to play with me? What games do you want to play?’” Santa likes everyone to have friends, and he does not like bullying. The children all agreed being friends with children who are lonely would definitely get you on Santa’s good side. “Sharing your school supplies is nice,” Josh said. Toys, treats and school supplies — they all said it’s important to Santa that they take turns and share with others.

Helping out at home and school was another popular suggestion. “I do the silverware,” Cole said. The children thought going above and beyond what your parents ask will put you right at the top of Santa’s list. “Making breakfast on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day is nice,” said Harrison, 10. “Or Veterans Day,” Jake added. “I help my mom with the dog,” Shayla said. The entire group agreed that taking care of pets was very important. “When your parents aren’t home or they’re asleep, you

could wash the dog for them,” Harrison said. “And if they’re not in your family, you can still wash their dog,” Cole added. Helping people with dogs was definitely at the top of the nice suggestion list. However, it’s probably best to ask an adult for help or permission before attempting to wash anyone’s dog. This is the time of year to remember that Santa is paying close attention to how children treat others and behave at home, so you’d better watch out! The countdown has begun, and he is coming this way!

Holiday crafts for the whole family to enjoy by Azure Hall Contributing writer Arts and crafts are a great way for families to bond over wholesome fun. There is no better time to create together than the holiday season. Children get the chance to make gifts to give to loved ones, parents get pieces of art that symbolize lasting memories and the whole family gets in quality time together. Use these craft ideas to bring your family together this winter.

Picture Frame Wreath

These wreaths will look great hanging on a front door or standing on a mantle. Create them for your own home or to give as a gift. » 8-by-10-inch picture frame » Paint brushes » White priming paint » Red or green craft paint » Wired ribbon » Hot glue gun and hot glue » Thin white ribbon » 3 miniature Christmas tree ball ornaments Paint frame with white primer and allow to dry. Paint with craft paint and allow to dry. Tie wired ribbon into a bow and hot glue to the top front of the picture frame. Cut white ribbon into three separate 8-inch strips, fold in half, loop and tie through balls. Hot glue the knots of the white ribbons to the top back of the frame, allowing clubs to hang over the top front of the frame. Hang and enjoy. (Craft submitted by Azure Hall)

Mason Jar Memory Globe

This photo globe makes a great seasonal gift for family members and can be used for years to come. » Cotton balls » Mason jar » Silver glitter » Photos » Clear tape » Festive ribbon » Glue Pull apart cotton balls until they are wisps. Place cotton into the bottom of the mason jar and sprinkle in glitter. Adhere the back of the photo with tape to the inside back of the jar, so the photo faces into the jar. Glue ribbon to the circumference of the top of the jar. (Craft adapted from www.craftionary.net)

Candy Cane Reindeer

These edible reindeer can be used to decorate your Christmas tree, to give to friends and family, or for children to hand out to classmates and teachers. » Brown pipe cleaners » Candy canes » Craft glue » Googley eyes » Red buttons Cut pipe cleaners into 6-inch strips. Wrap strips around the base of the candy cane in a spiral, then remove. Glue googley eyes to the front of the curve of the candy cane, like eyes on a face. Glue button below eyes to look like a nose. Wrap pipe cleaner around the top of the curve of the candy cane as antlers. Enjoy yourself and share with friends. (Craft adapted from www.crafts-for-all-seasons.com)

Hand-Painted Holiday Village

Rather than purchase a pre-made holiday village, create one with your family. Children choose their favorite white porcelain houses and buildings, usually for about a dollar apiece, and paint their own table-top town. Add new trinkets, such as a mirror lake, each year. » Newspaper » White porcelain buildings » Craft paint, multiple colors » Paintbrushes » Cotton balls Cover tabletop in newspaper. Paint buildings with craft paint and set out to dry. While paint is drying, pull apart the cotton balls until they are wisps. Once the buildings are dry, arrange in desired order on top of the cotton wisps to create a wintery display. (Craft submitted by Staff Sgt. Heather Stark)

Gumdrop Snowflakes

This simple craft is the perfect treat for your child to take into class. It is simple and sweet, two important ingredients for crafts with kids. » Colored toothpicks » Craft glue » Sugared gumdrop candies » String Glue two toothpicks together in the shape of a cross. Glue two more toothpicks together in the shape of an X. Glue all four toothpicks together in then shape of a star. Allow all glue to dry. Line the toothpicks with gumdrops. Tie string around the center in a loop to be able to display snowflakes before enjoying as a snack. (Craft adapted from www.thesitsgirls.com)

Providers who provide more than 10 hours a week of care must be licensed. Please use good judgment when choosing child care services. For more information please contact DSN 478-7420 or civ 06371405-7420 or email 86FSS.FCC@ramstein.af.mil My wife and I are looking for an energetic, full-time babysitter or nanny to watch our 11-month old daughter. We just moved to the Kaiserslautern area - I am in the Air Force and my wife has been offered a job at Ramstein so we need someone who can start immediately. Child care would be either at our home or yours, Monday through Friday and roughly 6:30 am to 5:30 pm. We're on a waiting list for base childcare, so this job would be at least 3 to 6 months with the potential to become permanent. Pay is certainly negotiable, and we are willing to pay rates commensurate with education and certifications/experience if applicable.
