Mother Nature has bedecked Salzburg's cityscape with a beautiful blanket of snow just in time for the holidays!
To get into the spirit, many of us gathered at Dr. Guenther's house this past Sunday (13. December) to sip Glühwein (don't worry--non alcoholic! :) ), nibble yummy cookies, cakes, and other finery, and sing a few carols in German and English. Here's a quick clip of our singing (Rebecca Arjev on guitar):
Our evening included reditions of "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen" (Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming), "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer", and "Kling, Glöckchen."
As everyone looks forward to celebrating the holidays either here in Europe or in the U.S., we wish everyone reading this a very Happy Christmas, Fröhliche Weihnachten, and a Happy New Year!
