This week we’ve asked Katja Lauterbach from Duett Designs to talk all about traditions. Let’s get to chatting!
A: Baking our special German Christmas cookies! It was always an Advent Sunday filled with so much fun and laughter. I continued this tradition with my kids and it is just like when I did it with my mom.
A: My mom used to fill an Advent calendar with sweets and little treats. Since we do not have the fillable ones available here, I get creative and design a new calendar every year with 24 little gifts to make waiting for Christmas more enjoyable.
A: We will continue to follow them just with less people, but that’s okay.
A: Sunday Breakfast – everyone is at the table and it’s a classic German meal with fresh bread rolls, cooked eggs, breakfast meats, cheeses, and jam. It takes up to two hours and we talk about everything and nothing – such a joy!
A: I would like to travel with my mom at least once a year. We try and we’ve succeeded a couple of times but life is usually too complicated to do this as regularly as we would like.
Thank you for your inspiration and insight. Let’s chat again soon.
