Visit the Nurem berg Chris tmas Mark et by Me g Contr an Finley ibutin g writ er

If you are looking for a little bit of charm, romance and holiday enchantment this time of year, then the “Christkindlesmarkt,” or Nuremberg Christmas Market, is the place to go. Over two million tourists travel to Nuremberg every Christmas season to indulge in the holiday festivities. It may seem like this is perhaps a major tourist overload, but think again. The Christkindlesmarkt is actually three markets all smashed into one. There is a large market with rows of Christmas delights that extend through the town’s main square. In this market you will find traditional Christmas smokers, or figures that “exhale” incense smoke,

nutcrackers, Christmas-themed figurines and food vendors galore. There is nothing like indulging in a steaming cup of Gluehwein, or hot mulled wine, and traditional “Lebkuchen,” or gingerbread. Don’t forget to order “Drei im Weggla,” three delicious Nuremberg sausages in a roll. The second market in Nuremberg is called the “Sister Cities” market. This market sells goods relating to cities all around the globe: Antalya, Turkey; Atlanta, Georgia; Kharkiv, Ukraine; Glasgow, Scotland; Kavala, Greece; Krakow, Poland; Nice, France; Prague, Czech Republic; San Carlos, Nicaragua; Shenzhen, China; and Hadera, Isreal — all sis-

ter cities of Nuremberg. Last but not least, there is the “Kinderweihnacht,” or Children’s Christmas, with low windows and steps for the shorter people in our lives. And, of course, no Christmas market is complete without an ornately decorated carousel. With such a wide selection of Christmas markets locally, one might ask themselves, why travel all the way to Nuremberg? One reason is because of the town’s rich history. The Christmas market was originally mentioned in a document dating back to 1628. Most of the products sold at the market are made by regional manufacturers; and the stalls are made of regional spruce trees, many of them

originally constructed in 1890. If food is your motivation, the Nuremberg Christmas Market has that covered. Lebkuchen was invented in the 13th century and is sold in decorated tins. These tins have become highly sought after collector’s items. The way the sausages are made in Nuremberg dates back to 1497. Only sausages bought within the city limits are deemed “Original Nurembergers.” The sausage must weigh 23 grams and be as thick as your little finger. Wash it all down with Nuremberg’s Gerstacker blueberry Gluehwein, and you’re all set. You will be hardpressed to find anything like it. One last reason to hit the popular market is to check out

the Nuremberg “Christking”— a symbol of the market for decades. Every two years, a blond girl between the ages of 16 and 19 is chosen. She wears a gold crown and white gown and opens the Christkindlesmarkt with a speech from the balcony of the Church of Our Lady. She will make her grand appearance at 3 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the market. The Nuremberg Christmas Market runs from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day beginning today to Dec. 23., and on Christmas Eve until 2 p.m. The opening ceremony will take place at 5:30 p.m today.

If you wake up the morning of Dec. 6 to find a full bag of candy or presents waiting for you, it’s likely you received a visit from St. Nicholas. In parts of Germany, “Sankt Nikolaus,” or as we call him in English, St. Nicholas, brings gifts for children on “Nikolaustag,” St. Nicholas Day. Houses are thoroughly cleaned, and children clean their shoes or boots, preferably the biggest pair possible, in preparation for the big man to visit.

The joys of St. Nicholas Day in Germany

Also on this day, many children recite poems or sing songs for the bishop. Some even make a small gift for him. Other traditions include lighting candles on the Advent wreath and the Christmas pyramid with a nativity scene; and then some families read stories and sing songs as everyone waits for his arrival. When there is a knock on the door, the jolly saint comes in with his book and sack of goodies, and one of the children holds his staff for him as he asks them, “Have you behaved yourself?” If the answer is “yes,” he gives out gifts and goodies for everyone to share. The children share their surprises with St. Nicholas as well. Different areas of Germany have different customs. For example, in Stuttgart children dress up as the jolly saint and go door to door for sweets. In the Moselle region, St. Nicholas is known as the patron saint who protects the people from danger. During the time of the Celts and Romans, ships were towed up the river using manpower and later animals, a dangerous procedure, therefore shrines and chapels dedicated to the saint were built along the Moselle River in exchange for his protection. If you decide to attend the Bernkastel-Kues Christmas Market this year or the market in Mainz, do not be surprised to find Sankt Nikolaus himself make an appearance. Bernkastel-Kues Christmas Market runs through Dec. 20, and the Mainz Christmas Market runs through Dec. 23.

If you wake up the morning of Dec. 6 to find a full bag of candy or presents waiting for you, it’s likely you received a visit from St. Nicholas.

The evening before St. Nicholas Day, children place letters and carrots or other food near their shiny shoes for the bishop with the flowing beard and staff and his white horse or donkey. These items are sometimes left outside, under a bed or near a window for St. Nicholas to come fill them with goodies. St. Nicholas then goes from house to house with a book where all of the children’s deeds for the year are carefully noted. In theory, if the children have been good, he fills their shoes or a plate with fruits, nuts and candies. If the children have been bad, their shoes are filled with potatoes, coal and twigs.

Traditional homemade holiday recipes by Megan Finley, Contributing writer (Recipes from www.allrecipes.com)

al holiday meal with these recipes to impress your guests and have them going back up for seconds. Canned cranberry sauce and creamed corn? No way — throw the canned goods out the window this year and see how easy and delicious it is to make your holiday meal from scratch.

Perfect Turkey

Homemade Cranberry Sauce Start to finish: 25 minutes Servings: 11 12 ounces of cranberries 1 cup sugar 1 cup orange juice In a medium-sized saucepan over medium-heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Sir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

Rinse turkey, and throw away the brine mixture. Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stuff the turkey cavity with 1 onion, 1/2 the carrots, 1/2 the celery, 1 sprig of thyme and the bay leaf. Scatter the remaining vegetables and thyme around the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover with the white wine. Roast uncovered 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the oven, until the internal temperature in the thigh reaches 180 F (85 C). Carefully turn the turkey breast side up about 2/3 through the roasting time and brush with the remaining butter. Allow the bird to stand about 30 minutes before carving.

Don't be

a ‘Grinch’:

reducing conflict during the holidays by Dr. Krystal White Contributing writer


t is just as easy to be irritable and mean during the holidays as it is to be generous and sweet. Many families find themselves blissfully swimming in a sea of wrapping paper with ridden gratitude one hour and the next screaming over who is hoarding the game system, causing a mess and not helping out enough. The holidays intensify our sense of connection to those we love. Yet they often are accompanied with temper tantrums, snarky comments and irritated arguments. Feelings of glad tidings and merriment can easily be overshadowed by reoccurring resentments or nega-

tive assumptions. Often, we react with frustration and anger rather than peace and joy. When the big day is finally here, research shows many families begin to argue around 10 a.m. A study of over 4,000 households found that arguing was one of the most experienced rituals of our holiday celebrations. The key triggers of conflict were: stressful pressure to cook the perfect holiday meal, arguments over what to watch on TV, and children creating chaos or messes. In addition, during larger family gatherings we are likely to encounter other people that regularly irritate us. Psychologist Leonard Felder reports in his research that three-quarters of society has at least

one family member who annoys them. University of Louisville psychologist Michael Cunningham identified that “social allergens” run high during the holiday season. Social allergens are habits others have that get down to your last nerve. For example, relatives who always need to “one up you,” kids playing electronics at the dinner table, or a partner who forgot to buy a present as promised. When we consider the stress of the season, it’s

no wonder that arguments come naturally. Add high expectations and physical fatigue together with overconsumption of stimulation, food and drinks, and you have a perfect recipe for family drama. Very few of us are at our best during the holidays, and no one wants to be a “Grinch” during this time of year either. Here are the top five things you can do to prevent the Grinch from stealing your holiday joy: • Clearly define three things that are most important to you and why. For example, perhaps setting up the tree is in your top three because the tree lights have a joyful, calming effect on the children and remind you of being a kid again. Write down these top three experiences in advance and share them with your family. • Give yourself permission to say “no.” If a task, event or experience is not part of you or your family members’ “top three things,” consider not doing it at all. The goal is to simplify and avoid overstimulation and exhaustion. This can help you feel more grateful for the amount of quality time together and to take less time for granted. • Come up with clear expectations of who is responsible for certain chores on the big days of celebration. Specify when chores should be completed and reinforce a “team spirit.” For example, perhaps you have a 15-minute

“family cleanup time” at 11 a.m. to reduce aggravation over one person doing it all. One idea is to have a Christmas-helper jar: Each family member draws two to three chores for the day with a time frame for completion (e.g., set the table by 2 p.m., help dad or mom in the kitchen between noon and 1 p.m., separate recyclables from 11 a.m. to noon, clear dishes and load the dishwasher after dinner and before evening electronics time). • Write love notes or words of appreciation throughout the season. Jot down kind words on a sticky note for one other person at least once a day and make them feel special. This habit will train your brain to notice the wonderful things about the season rather than what is annoying. Give up a sense of perfection and worrying over details. No one will remember what side dishes you served or what present they received five years from now. But they will remember how it felt to spend quality time with you. Remind yourself that other people matter more than trying to make the perfect meal or buy the perfect present.

Make the best of your Christmas market experience How to make the most of your market visit by Dr. Krystal White, Contributing writer

German Christmas markets have inspired a sense of community cheer and holiday merriment for over 400 years. Amidst the dark days and cold nights, it is easy to be dreary and avoid venturing out. Historically, days near or on Dec. 25 have always been celebrated in multiple cultures as a crucial day of the year: Egyptians paid homage to their key gods; Romans celebrated the sun god Saturn during this season; and every year Germanic ancestors started multiple midwinter festivals near the winter solstice. These historical celebrations influence the Christmas markets we experience and cherish today. Christmas pyramids, nativity scenes and signs of Christian rituals such as mistletoe, continue to dominate market decoration and cheer. The original sentiment of the market, to gather people together, can still be felt. We huddle together in the twinkle of soft light with the sounds of laughter and merry music, knowing that the most precious gift we possess is togetherness. Navigating to a German Christmas market can be challenging, whether or not you’re new to the market atmosphere or you are a yearly market visitor. Here are some tips to help you maximize your merriness:

Good cheer needs a crowd

Sometimes more cheer is spread at Christmas markets when you have a group of people spending time together. Some can take the kids and go for a stroll, ride on the ferris wheel or visit the petting zoo while others shop around for ornaments and stocking stuffers. It’s always fun to plan a local train trip to the markets to reduce the stress of navigating, the irritation of parking and the need for a designated driver. Weekend group train tickets for up to five people is always the most affordable way to travel to a Christmas market. Plus, you can play cards or enjoy snacks during your commute — a whole day of excitement and good cheer.

Stick to a budget

It is easy to be so full of the holiday spirit

that the cash just keeps flowing. We are less of a stickler when it comes to our sense of self control during this time of year, and we tend to spend more money in the company of others. Plus, research shows that we are more likely to spend more money when we are cold. In general, without accounting for presents or actual objects purchased, most Christmas marketgoers spend 10 to 15 euro per hour on consumable products. The best way to combat forking over 100 euro for every market you visit is to plan on only spending a predetermined amount of cash. This tactic may assist you in budgeting your alcoholic intake as well.

November 27, 2015

Now that you have some tips, here are three German markets you should experience this season: Sankt Wendel

This small, local village packs in a lot of charm and visitors. After revelling in more than a 100 wooden stalls spread throughout only a few winding streets, if you arrive around the perfect time, you can be delighted as the Three Wise Men stroll through the town with live camels. Every evening at 7 p.m., the night watchman closes the market. Enjoy the market from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 5 to Dec.13.

Make new friends


Bundle up

Bad Wimpfen

The atmosphere of each individual market is completely different, but most emit a social energy. This is the perfect opportunity to chat with the locals and make new friends. It can feel awkward at first to approach others you do not know, but most people welcome smiling strangers to share their table. It can be extremely rewarding to meet people you would not come to know under normal, non-festive circumstances. Be situationally aware, but be friendly and try asking others for local recommendations or advice. Need advice for staying warm rather than layering on piles of extra winter clothing? Research the area near your market beforehand and make reservations at a local cafe for coffee and cake. A cozy inside break from the cold always feels super inviting. Also, it’s a smart move to bring a large thermos filled with hot tea. You can enjoy it in between your mugs of Gluhwein and continue to be warm, and sober! (Dr. White is a pediatric psychologist at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and the developmental health consultant for Europe Regional Medical Command. She specializes in healthy habits across the lifespan and evaluating developmental disorders.)

Easily accessed by train, this spectacular town boasts some of the best wine and food you’ll savor this holiday season. Do not miss out on sampling the best “Dampfnudeln,” or traditional German dumplings, of the area. Plus, the market’s unique Gluehwein is made from local, superior red wine by nearby producers. There are also plenty of warm barns and inviting cafes to relax and warm up in. The market goes every weekend beginning today through Dec. 20. Opening times: 5 p.m. Fridays, 2 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. Sundays. Traveling a few hours from home on “Burgenstrasse,” or Castle Road, this market is one of the best in Germany. It’s old medieval walls and cobblestone streets convey a fairy tale-like glow that will be sure to get you into the Christmas spirit. The market offers amazingly unique and often handmade items in its booths. Think handmade chocolates, cookies, scarves, hats, mittens and ornaments. You can always plan an overnight trip and sleep in a castle close by. Experience the market’s charming weekends today through Dec. 13. Opening times: 2 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m. Saturdays and 11:30 a.m. Sundays.

The city is a bustling urban center: the capital of the province, birthplace of the euro and home to what some say is the greatest art and antiques fair in the world. Maastricht’s inner beauty doesn’t stop here — from Saturday to Dec. 29, the elegant city transforms into Magical Maastricht as the city center becomes a Christmas paradise. During the Christmas season, a large ice skating rink, a Christmas market and an enchanting carousel will take over Vrijthof square and the entire city center will bring more festivities for everyone, young and old. Children and church choirs will put the city into the Christmas spirit, and magical theater and musical performances will take place at various cafes, museums, squares and streets in Maastricht. For more details on the musical program, visit www.magicalmaastricht.nl. This charming town of only 130,000 people has several Michelin-starred restaurants. If these are out of your price range, you may want to consider dining at one of the 300 pubs and cafes in Maastricht. There is a certain class of pub in the Netherlands, called a “brown cafe.” These establishments are tiny wood-paneled pubs that serve inexpensive, hearty meals. Sjinkerij de Bobbel, located at Wolfstraat 32, is one such cafe. The name is Dutch-slang meaning a bottle for storing gin, said Taco Van der Bijl, de Bobbel’s owner. The interior is dark and cool with only seven or eight tables. The kitchen is now open daily from 10 a.m to 9 p.m. You can get several types of soup including French onion, Limburg mustard soup and goulash soup, a generous serving of quiche, sandwiches and their special coffee, Bobbelmelange. More casual dining can be found on the street. Belgian waffles are a popular street food. Sidewalk stands serve the warm, sweet, chewy waffles dusted with powdered sugar straight off the griddle to hungry holiday shoppers and tourists. After numerous rounds of ice skating with the kids on the 800 square meter rink, grab a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the seasonal delicacy “oliebollen,” or deep-fried doughnut balls. Walk along the main shopping strip, and you will notice the decorated windows and the shops’ special winter collections. Besides eating, Maastrichters love to shop. On Groote Staat, the main shopping street, you’ll find European department stores, designer shops, interior stores with home accessories and furniture, jewelers, antique shops and galleries. During the Christmas season, artists will have the opportunity to display their light projects within the city along the Magical Light Route, giving the inner city and shops that much more of a glow. Stroll across the “Hoeg Broegk,” or the old bridge, admire the Maasboulevard and Mosae Forum shopping center and make your way to the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein, a square in Maastricht, where there will be a display of 200 mistletoeshaped lamps. The shops in Maastricht are open the first Sunday of the month from noon to 5 p.m. Better yet, shops will extend their hours for the Christmas season with additional shopping nights until 9 p.m. Dec. 22 and 23.

Ingredients (for 4 people) 1 whole duck 4 chestnuts, peeled and boiled 3 dried bread rolls 1 apple, red or green 1 pear ½ cup parsley, chopped 1 egg 1 cup of milk 3 tsp salt 3 tsp ground White Pepper 3 stalks of celery 1 whole leek 4 carrots, medium size 4 medium onions 1 tsp tomato paste 2 bottles of dark beer, high in malt

Preparation of Duck

When you get the duck, be sure it is clean inside the cavity of the duck. Make sure all the organs are removed. Rinse under cold water. Dry it off with a paper towel. Season the duck, inside and out with salt and pepper, about a tsp of each.

Stuffing for Duck

Cut the bread rolls in thin slices. Heat the milk till warm. Peel the pear and the apple. Cut each in 4 pieces, remove the center and then slice into thin pieces. Slice your boiled chestnuts, finely. Add the parsley to the bread rolls. Pour the milk over the bread rolls. Let this sit for 5 minutes. Take two wooden spoons to work with the bread roll mixture until it cools enough to put your hands in the dough. Add your apples, pears and chestnuts. Add the spices, and egg. Again work the dough with your hands until you have a smooth consistency. Stuff the duck with the dough mixture. You can take a needle and thread and close the hole of the duck or close the hole with toothpicks. Let the duck sit to the side as you prepare the vegetables for the dish.

(Dumplings and cabbage from previous recipes)

You need a metal 9 x 13 baking dish. The deeper the dish, the better it will hold all the sauce. Cut the vegetables into 1 inch pieces. Put them into the baking dish. Add 1 cup of water and a ¼ cup beer and tomato paste. Salt and pepper the vegetables. Place the duck on top of the vegetable bed. Put in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Return to the oven approximately every 30 minutes to put more sauce over the duck, adding more beer as the fluid level reduces. After 3 to 3.5 hours, the duck should be done, with a nice brown crust on the outside. Reduce the heat in the oven, to 80 degrees Celsius. Put the duck on a plate. Let the duck sit inside the oven to rest. If your sauce isn’t nice brown in color and tasty, put the vegetable and liquid on top of the stove and turn a burner on low. Cook down the liquid so that the tomato paste will roast a bit more. When the tomato paste achieves a nice brown color, add the rest of your dark beer and 1-2 cups of water. Add more salt and pepper if desired. If your duck was particularly fatty, you can take a spoon and dip off the top layer of fat before the final step of the sauce. Then, use a drink mixer and blend all the vegetables into the sauce, creating thick sauce. Cut the duck in half, through the breast bone. Then cut the halves between the leg and the wing in a 45 degree angle towards the leg, so all four piece are equivalent in meat portions. Divide the stuffing into 4 portions and plate next to the duck. Serve potato knoedel (dumplings) and red cabbage with this dish for an awesome German Christmas Dinner. See you next week!

Enjoy your meal!

Q-tip Snowflake Ornaments

Homemade Cinnamon Ornaments

Bow Tie Noodle Wreath Craft

Q-tips Silver glitter Glue Scissors Blue paper Sparkly silver pipe cleaners Start by cutting Q-tips into short and longer pieces. Put strips of glue on the paper in the shape of a snowflake and have the kids do the longer ones first. One tip I have is to have them actually touching in the middle. After those are laid down, put shorter strips of glue between them. While the Q-tips are drying, take a glue bottle and line each Q-tip with glue again, sprinkling glitter on top. Once it is completely dry, cut the paper out around the snowflake. Bend a pipe cleaner and tape it in the back to hang it on the tree. Pictures don’t do justice; these ornaments twinkle so pretty in the light!

1 cup applesauce 1 1/4 cup ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon ground cloves (optional) Heat the oven to 200 F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the applesauce, cinnamon and cloves (if using). It may take a few minutes for the mixture to come together. You want the dough to be able to form a ball without being too sticky. Add additional applesauce or cinnamon if needed. You can mix the dough by hand, it may just take longer. Sprinkle a clean surface with cinnamon (like you would with flour while rolling out pie dough). Place the dough on the surface and sprinkle with more cinnamon. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick, sprinkling with more cinnamon to keep from sticking. Cut out into desired shapes and place on the prepared sheet pan so that they aren’t touching. Use a skewer to poke a hole into each ornament (to attach string). Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until rock hard. Loop a decorative string through the ornament and hang on your tree. Notes: Ornaments may also be dried at room temperature over several days. Ornaments are not extremely fragile, but they can break. Handle with care. Do not eat.

Mini bow tie pasta Green paint Paintbrush Green glitter White card stock Red ribbon Glue Start by painting all of the little bow tie noodles with green paint, and shake with green glitter. Once the noodles are completely dry, glue them into a circular wreath shape on a piece of white card stock. Using a red ribbon, tie a bow and glue it on the bottom of the wreath. Let dry. Now you have your first Christmas card to send out to friends or family!

Bring in the new year right The best places to go for New Year’s Eve

New Year’s is approaching quickly once again, which means it's time to think about where the right place is for you, your family or friends to spend this wonderful time of year. There are many breathtaking places to go to bring in the new year while living in Germany, so why not see 2015 off with a bang in one of the world's best cities? Here are top three cities and parties in Europe to go to on New Year’s Eve. by Amie LaSalvia, Contributing writer

Berlin, Germany

In Berlin, Silvester, or New Year’s Eve, is celebrated in the loudest way possible. Many of the locals celebrate on their balconies, in their front lawns, at local parks and in the streets, so no matter where you go there is an exhilarating party and great people to meet. Right as the clock strikes midnight, the best fireworks light up the sky. The biggest iconic fireworks display can be enjoyed in the heart of Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate. The city is so full of life and energy and there is plenty to do for the whole family. You can find everything from the famous “Pfannkuchenlauf,” or pancake race, a 6.3K or 10K run up and down Teufelsberg where runners toss a pancake while running, to great music at some of the stages surrounding the Brandenburg Gate and amazing German food.

Paris, France Why not bring in the new year in the “city of light and love?” New Year’s Eve in Paris is one not to miss. What can be better than watching the Eiffel Tower light show as it glitters and sparkles in the electric atmosphere of people toasting to the new year with the never-ending fizz of French champagne? You won’t even need to worry about transportation around the city; Paris’ underground transportation system is open all night on New Year’s Eve, so you will be free to wander the city and enjoy the festivi-

ties all night long. For the best view of the Eiffel Tower, head down early to the “Parc du Champ de Mars.” This park is located directly in front of the tower. Also make sure you bring plenty of drinks, blankets and warm clothing. If you’re not a fan of large crowds but still want to celebrate, head over to the “Basilica Sacre-Coeur,” or the Sacre Coeur Cathedral Plaza. Here you can see a beautiful view of the city. This is a great, less-chaotic place to bid the past year farewell. As long as the sky is somewhat clear, you will be able to view the Paris skyline, the Eiffel Tower light show and possibly some of the locals’ fireworks displays.

London, England New Year’s Eve in London is one of the biggest attractions in Europe, bringing in thousands of people to the city to see the breathtaking fireworks display. Beginning at midnight and lasting for about 15 minutes, the London Eye and Big Ben set of fireworks, filling the night sky with beautiful colors. Everyone gathers along the riverside to watch this extravagant show, so it can be hard getting

a good spot unless you wait in line all day. The earlier you get there the better. If you can’t get a spot next to the river, there are a few other alternatives so you don’t miss out on this spectacular view: Get on the water. There are many boats on the River Thames that offer river cruises so you can enjoy a relaxing boat ride and have an enjoyable evening. The river cruises save the best part for last — a front row seat to the fireworks show at midnight. To book a reservation, go to http://www.riverthames. co.uk. Another great alternative is to head over to London’s Hyde Park, St. James Park or Green Park. Here, you can watch the fireworks without standing in a big crowd. If you are willing to go a little out of the way, Primrose Hill is another spectacular spot, located about four miles from the London Eye. Here you will have a picture-perfect panoramic view of the River Thames and the fireworks without having to strain your neck. If you decide this option is for you, be sure to bring your own blankets, food and of course some champagne to toast to the year ahead.

The Drink of the Season by Krystal White Contributing writer It is pronounced “Glue-vine,” and most people start sipping it midNovember. Nothing inspires the feeling of Christmas more than huddling together in the brisk winter air with a mug of steaming hot, sugared wine. There’s even a Christmas song devoted to its American relative; ever whistled the song “Here we go a Wassailing”? In high school, friends who were with me in the show choir would all gather one night during the holiday season and wander around the block singing to their neighbors. We would enjoy being together with cocoa or warm apple cider while the parents sang a little more boisterously, their sound pipes fueled by their cups of mulled wine. Luxurious afterlife rituals of Egyptian Pharaohs introduced the

spiced wine to the world, believing that adding special spices to the liquid imparted medicinal and supernatural powers. Once the spice trade was introduced, noble families utilized spiced wine to show off the wealth and generosity of their medieval households; it was a status symbol. Up until the last 100 years, spices were conserved like gold and only used quite sparingly until certain seasons. In France during medieval times, this type of wine was named Hippocras, after the famous doctor Hippocrates, as it was frequently used to treat a series of ailments. Families also celebrated winter and the Christmas market season by adding these spices to wine and heating them up. It not only masked the flavor of not-so-good vintages, but it made people merry and signified a time of joy. German Gluehwein is the king of all mulled wines. Mulled wine is

Recipes Easy Amaretto Punch Servings: 8 to 10 Start to finish: 5 minutes Need a stellar hit at a party but don’t have that much time to prepare? The best recipe for an instant crowd-pleasing batch of Gluehwein is two bottles of store bought, premade Gluehwein and a bottle of amaretto. Add little curls of orange peel in the mugs, if you want to put some effort in it, and top it off with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

"Feuerzangenbowle" (Fire Punch) Servings: 10 to 12 Start to finish: 10 minutes This is basically a heated bowl of Gluehwein that gets kicked up a notch when you suspend a rum-soaked block of sugar over it and light it on fire. The rum and sugar slowly dissolve into the prepared wine and you’ve got “wunderbar” entertainment. Try a warm white Gluehwein recipe, adding 1 cup organic apple juice to two bottles of dry riesling and 1 teaspoon of ginger.

just heated wine with added spices, but the current practice of producing Gluehwein varies quite drastically — from simple recipes to complicated concoctions, the goal is to enhance the experience. Some add fruit, nuts or cream-based spirits while others use various high-quality red wine and in some rare cases, white wine. With a growing number of small Christmas markets popping up around Germany, an estimated 4,000 markets have been added in the last seven years, it’s hard not to go to a Christmas market where almost every other person is holding a mug of the wine. That’s because it is big business. Out of all the people applying to open a booth at a market, 70 to 80 percent of applicants are Gluehwein stands. In 2002, the “Bundesverband Deutscher Schausteller und Marktkaufleute,” or the Federal Association of German showmen and market traders, esti-

Grandma's Gluehwein Servings: 10 to 12 Start to finsh: 1 hour 15 minutes A classic, traditional drink full of citrus and autumn fruit. Open up two bottles of very dry red wine; Chianti or the local favorite Dornfelder is a perfect choice. 2 oranges 2 green apples 1 pear 1 lemon peel 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar 1 small clementine 2 cinnamon sticks 2 star anise dash of nutmeg 1 whole vanilla pod* 2 bottles extra dry red wine Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Slice the oranges, green apples and pear. Once water is hot, add in a whole sliced peel from a lemon and the turbinado sugar. Squeeze juice from the small clementine into the sugar and lemon peel mixture and stir. Place fruit slices in the bottom of the large stock pot. Add in the cinnamon sticks, star anise, a few dashes of nutmeg and a whole vanilla pod. Stir gently, adding in half a cup of wine. Bring to a boil for 3 to 5 minutes, making a nice syrup. Once sugar is dissolved, add the remaining two bottles of wine. Turn the heat to low and let simmer for a least 1 hour. *Available in all large grocery markets and well worth the money

mated that the average mulled wine stand has sales of around €50,000 in a single season, two times more than other stall-keepers. Strict rules prevent a glut of supply: Only one Gluehwein stand per five or ten different stands is permitted in each market. In all fairness, Gluehwein sellers are typically charged higher rents. The only way to decide if you like the wine is to sample it across various vendors. Be careful, after two mugs you will hardly be able to distinguish a difference. It’s important to remember that when you are cold, putting back four or five of these mugs in a short time is quite easy, leading to a good recipe for how not to spend your holiday season. Consume it selectively and wisely. No matter what your preference is, Gluehwein is sure to become another cold weather tradition that you look forward to every holiday season.

Raspberry Lemon Peel Muffins Servings: 12 Start to finish: 35 minutes Need something that pairs well with a nice warm mug of Gluehwein? Try Raspberry Lemon Peel Muffins. The fruit brings out the liquor’s intensity, and the lemon peel brings out the tartness of the wine. 1 cup old fashioned oats 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1/2 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup Greek yogurt 2 eggs 1 teaspoon almond extract 3/4 cup raspberries 1/4 cup dried lemons or candied ginger 1/3 cup maple syrup 2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar Heat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside. Mix wet ingredients separately in a medium bowl. Stir wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Add in raspberries, dried lemons or candied ginger. Separately whisk together the maple syrup with the cinnamon sugar and pour one teaspoon of the mixture into the center of the batter. Bake for 20 minutes. Photo by CGissemann/Shutterstock.com

Snapping out of the winter blues Five tips for battling seasonal depression

Summer is a period of fruition, fulďŹ llment, happiness or beauty. Winter is a period of time characterized by coldness, misery, barrenness or death. — www.dictionary.com

ment of snow. For others, the chilly season triggers anxiety and depression. Here are the top ďŹ ve tips for how to shed a little sunlight on your seasonal sadness. Get outside. Bundle up and spend as much time as you can outside now and through the duration of the winter season. This will help you store any sun exposure you currently have. Additionally, sunlight is the most important weapon against seasonal depression, so use it to your advantage. If you can afford it, buy a light box. As the winter months allow less sun exposure, these nifty little devices can give you a boost when the natural sunlight cannot. Look forward. Be a proactive and forward thinker. Get your holiday shopping done early. Start making plans and preparing for upcoming


Well unfortunately for many of us, that just about hits the nail on the head. The beauty of autumn has passed, and all of the beautiful leaves have fallen from the trees and have been raked, bagged and tossed away. The air is colder and the days are darker. We leave for work and school when it’s dark and return home to darkness all over again. For some, winter is a festive time of year marked by holiday gatherings and the excite-

events, vacations, projects or whatever interests you. Keeping your mind and calendar busy will make all the difference. Know your limits. Although it is extremely important to stay engaged with family, friends and communities, know when to say “no.â€? Do not be afraid to say “noâ€?; rather than overwhelming yourself with further anxiety. And if you do ďŹ nd yourself in a pickle, do not be afraid to ask for help! Exercise. Whether it is a leisurely bike ride, a brisk walk or squats at your desk, be sure to get the blood moving every single day. Elevate your heart rate. Make time for this and put it on the daily calendar. Exercise is mental therapy. As we inch our way closer to the “thick of itâ€? in terms of the winter season, keep these tips in mind and take control of your mental health.

Coping with a new life, environment by Megan Finley Contributing writer Many of us have heard of the term “culture shock.â€? Culture shock is the disorientation or unfamiliar feeling a person may have when trying to adjust to life in a new place. Symptoms include homesickness, feelings of helplessness or dependency; disorientation; depression or sadness; anger; eating or sleeping disturbances; or critical reactions to the new culture. Here are some helpful tips on how to overcome culture shock. • Make friends with your new culture. Immerse yourself as much as possible. Attend local events. Shop at local stores. Learn the language whether it is through a class or app on your tablet. Meet your neighbors and befriend the locals. Practice that language with neighbors and friends. Part of

the feelings of culture shock may be because you feel like too much of an outsider. The most important survival tip for another culture is to immerse yourself in that culture. This can truly be the most rewarding, life-changing experience. • Do something new each day. Try local cuisine you have never tried before. Find a new hiking trail or path and wander. Sign up for a class at your local “Buergerhaus,â€? municipal hall or community center. Strike up a conversation with a member of your community you have never met before. Travel somewhere new, experience something different. Adventure surrounds you! • Establish stability. Establishing a routine will give you a feeling of comfort and safety. Make exercise a part of that routine to improve any negative feelings you may have. You will ďŹ nd com-

fort in the predictability of your daily routine. Perhaps after operating in your own routine for a while, you will feel a little more comfortable venturing outside of that comfort zone. • Try to see things through the locals’ eyes. Put your own world view in your back pocket for a bit, and try to understand the world the way the locals do. You may not agree with everything they say, believe or do. Just try to understand where they are coming from and seek understanding by asking questions and set aside any judgment. Life in another culture is not always balloons and rainbows. It can be an emotional roller coaster at times. However, it is one ride worth taking. Once you are back home, you will savor all the experiences, friendships and memories you have made.

Skiing with the KMC ski clubs Courtesy of the Kaiserslautern-West Pfalz Ski Club For many folks, summer is the time to partake in fun outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, biking and barbecues. During the winter months, people can get wrapped up in spending their days bemoaning the cold and dreary winter months. However, wintertime doesn’t have to be this way — if you know where to look and where to go, the cold months in Europe can be just as recreational and exciting as summertime. Lucky for all of us, there are great ski and boarding clubs in the KMC that will help to ensure your winter is far from boring. In the KMC, we are fortunate to have not one, but two ski clubs offering trips to some of the greatest ski areas in Europe. If you‘ve never skied or boarded before, you might at first write this opportunity off but before you do keep a couple of things in mind. First, many of our members join simply for the camaraderie and opportunity to meet and make new friends as well as the opportunity to travel to beautiful Alpine villages. Second, many ski club members are at the early stages of skiing and boarding and are beginners themselves so remember, it’s never too late to learn. Kaiserslautern-West Pfalz Ski Club is a small club, generally geared toward families and people who enjoy a low-key, quieter crowd. But don’t let that fool you, this club is all about having a wonderful ski experience.

Tannenbaum Ski Club is a larger club. It is geared toward singles and couples of all ages who enjoy a very energetic crowd. The members like to have fun, and they have an infectious spirit that can make a ski trip an unforgettable experience. Membership in both clubs is open to ID cardholders who have a desire to be a part of a fun club, make lasting friendships and to get out and enjoy Europe. Each club holds socials twice a month from September through May. The socials feature trip sign-ups, entertainment, refreshments and a chance to hobnob with fellow enthusiasts. The beauty of ski clubs is the convenience they provide to their members. A Trip Captain is assigned to each trip. The TC is responsible for running and organizing all aspects of the trip from sign-ups to hotel and transportation arrangements. All you have to do is sign up, make your payment and drive to the departure point. After loading, you’ll settle in your seat and enjoy the ride. Both clubs provide food and drink on the bus. Depending on the location of the hotel, the TC may collect lift pass money and purchase the passes for you the first day. TCs will provide you with departure times, meal times and other needed assistance. Sometimes the lifts are within walking distance from the hotel; sometimes you’ll take public transportation; and sometimes the group will use their own bus to get to the lifts. It all depends on the location. When the weekend comes to an end, the bus will return you to the original parking area. The cost of each trip varies. The price for

most trips includes bus transportation, hotel room, breakfast and dinner, and food and drink on the bus. You’ll be responsible for paying for your lift tickets, lunch on the slopes and drinks at dinner. Bus trips usually depart on Friday afternoon and, depending on the weekend, will return Sunday or Monday evening. Trips can take anywhere from six to nine hours depending on the destination. Both ski clubs provide its members not only with an opportunity to ski in Europe but to see and do other interesting things as a group. For example, the clubs also take trips to Oktoberfest, area wine fests and adventure trips. They foster positive relations among their members, the KMC and the European skiing communities through both skiing and social functions. The Kaiserslautern-West Pfalz Ski Club meets from 6 to 8 p.m. the first and third Wednesday of each month at the Bistrorante Paradox in Ramstein Village. For more information, visit www.kwestpfalzskiclub.com or “like” them on Facebook. The Tannenbaum Ski Club meets from 6 to 8 p.m. the first and third Wednesday of each month at the Belgian Club, Bldg. 308 on Ramstein. For more information, visit www.tannenbaumskiclub. org or “like” them on Facebook. Skiing starts early in Germany and both clubs are already offering holiday ski trips. You owe it to yourself and your family to take advantage of the opportunities the area ski clubs offer. Photo by Volodymyr Goinyk/Shutterstock.com

Ischgl set for a memorable skiing, ice display Photos courtesy of TVB Paznaun — Ischgl

by Thomas Warner Contributing writer A few hours south of Ramstein at Ischgl, the stage is set for another awesome season of snow, ice and memories to be made. Ischgl, located in Austria, has great restaurants, many apres-ski bars and nightclubs, fabulous shopping and entertainment opportunities at your beck and call. The winter community there kicks off the ski weekend 6 p.m. Saturday with a well-received, Top of the Mountain concert by American supergroup The Beach Boys, and one of the winterlong spectacles in the resort town will again be the Shapes in White frozen sculptures depicting various scenes involving the menagerie of the circus. A ski, wellness and leisure community spanning both through Austria and Switzerland, Ischgl has something for nearly everyone. Skiing with great snow is guaranteed through the first week of May. Village merchants offer duty-free shopping and restaurants range from casual, graba-quick-bite atmosphere to elegant, fine dining that has been said to rival what is seen in Salzburg, Vienna, and

other larger destinations. A trip to Ischgl will not wreck a person’s budget, but it will make for an unforgettable experience featuring something new and completely different. Day passes for Silvretta Arena start at €51, but children can gain free or discounted admission, and there are other options to accommodate anyone’s duration during their stay. Some people come only to see the Shapes in White show each year, where artists from many countries are commissioned to sculpt various scenes from both ice and snow. This year’s theme is “Circus” and around 20 artists from numerous countries including Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands submitted paintings of what they could create with the frozen elements. Selections were made and 10 people got the final commissions. The finished products often stand as high as 10 meters and will hearken back to a European staple of the traveling circus. There will be lions, tigers, clowns and other imagery from the big top world, offering just one more diversion from whatever visitors were doing before they arrived. The getaway town of Ischgl is situ-

ated in Austria, along the border of Switzerland, with the Alps providing sensational skiing and actually spanning both countries. The resort is a cluster of restaurants, shops, lifts and is happy to tout a multinational vibe as vacationers annually trek there from all over the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Europe, the United States and even the KMC. “And that’s the way is should be,” said one woman in the town’s tourism bureau. “We welcome all people to come and see what’s happening here. We have a good time year round here at Ischgl.” Assorted funparks are open amid all the lifts as well as other sites for boarders and freestylers who seek additional options. Non-snow months are chances for hiking, mountain climbing, bouldering, biking and other means of traversing the landscape there. There are 45 cable cars that carry people to and from the higher elevations year-round. During winter, many skiers prefer this method of being carried to the slopes. Chair lifts stretch up and down countless parts of the terrain, with Ischgl offering non-stop opportunities both

day and night to do something new. The Piz Val Gronda aerial tramway goes to the highest areas, with one gondola carrying 150 people up to 2,812 meters altitude. There are 238 km of ski slopes and countless off-piste runs at Silvretta Arena for the more adventurous people. Trails are marked black for extreme difficulty, red for intermediate, and blue for novice. Over 200 ski instructors are available at nearly 20 equipment shops around town for children or beginners who want a crash course on how to enjoy the slopes. Most people can pick up the sport in a few hours or a half day. If more time is needed, the instructors will do what it takes to get anyone acclimated to the snow. Calling the tourism bureau is a great way to plan a vacation or people can go through local travel agencies and on any of the various Internet travel sites. It is hard to find anything but positive reviews of Ischgl as nearly everyone who goes has come away with a positive impression. For more information, email the tourism and booking information office at info@ischgl.com or visit www.ischgl.com.

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the generations-old question: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely, and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foottall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way — a young human boy named Spot.
