Germany and Austria are rich in their Christmas caroling traditions. Together they are the area where many Christmas carols originated, with Silent Night, perhaps the best known of all Christmas carols, having been written in Austria.
These German speaking countries have their unique culture, and their celebration of Christmas reflect their uniqueness as a region. This goes well beyond their carols, and includes the Christmas tree.
My ancestry is one fourth German, specifically Bavarian. And another branch eventually also gets back to Bavaria. SO, I have an interest in this culture, the ways of some of my forefathers.
