A Traditional German Christmas

christmasTake a break from the hustle and bustle of the season to join us on Sunday, December 15, at 2 pm at the Westchester Library (10700 Canterbury Street) for a trip back in time to glimpse how Christmas was celebrated long ago.  STPS director and Riverside-Brookfield High School German teacher, Patricia Reaves will re-create Christmas-past by bringing to light many of our commonly used holiday customs.  See samples of ornaments and decorations from the Old Country, and discover the symbolism, lore, and legends that lie behind our cherished Christmas traditions.  Afterward, guests will be able to sample German holiday treats along with a simmering hot drink while sharing their own family traditions or just listening to other guests relate their own customs.
