Bavarian Culture and History
Christmas was, and still is something to look forward to in the Bavarian Culture. From the age-old festivities of sharing mulled wine to buying and sharing handmade gifts, it is a lifestyle that we still emphasize and pride in, whether in Germany or overseas.
If you haven’t celebrated Christmas the Bavarian way, you are missing out!
You can experience how Christmas was by visiting theatres, operas, orchestras, and festivals that showcase German culture, or you can buy some of the hand-crafted gifts and share it with your friends.
One of the most unique handmade gifts till today is still the German Smoker – an incense burner that symbolizes the offering of incense given to Jesus by the Three Wise Men. The first German smokers were developed over a century ago in Heidelberg using dough or motif. This treasured commodity was believed to have the power to ward off evil and was also used for it’s medicinal & healing properties.
