>>Lyssi,

>>My family isn't Eastern European, but that sounds like an interesting and
>>yummy tradition.  My aunt used to teach my siblings and her children German.
>>She had spent a year and a half in what used to be West Germany serving a

>>have an appreciation for classical music.  Well, she taught us to sing three
>>Christmas carols in German.  We would go caroling to an older German woman
>>we knew from church.  She would gather all her friends together to hear us

>>would always tell us not to expect to  get anything from her, but Ruth never
>>failed to give each of us a bag of cookies, a candy cane, and and an
>>ornament.  We performed for her ever year from 1984 to 1997.  I missed our
>>last performance because I was sick and breaking off and engagement at the
>>same time.  Kelly C knows what I am talking about.  In 1998, Ruth was living
>>in a nursing home and too sick to have all of us perform.  I did go visit
>>her that year.  It was the last time I saw her.  She passed away six months
>>later, just before my wedding.  That caroling is one of the most special

>>German was so good, but I knew how much it sucked.  We added other carols in
