Christmas In Germany 06

Hummel with U.S Flag German Christmas Tree Program
Sunday December 3rd - Today, my friend, Jose, his nephew, Tony, and I had an
  authentic Germany Lunch at the German-American Society of Omaha's "Christmas
  in Germany" celebration.  Afterward, we viewed the woodcarving & Hummel items
  displayed in the Ratskeller and the "Candle lit" Christmas trees .


North & South Hall (Upstairs)

  The North Hall had Entertainment all afternoon, including the nutcracker dance by
  the "Adair Dance Academy".  Authentic holiday food was served in the South Hall.

Christmas Trees (Upstairs)

  German brings many customs to the United States, including the Christmas Tree. The most impressive
  tree with its authentic German decorations (Top row) and it's wooden star on top were in the North Hall.
  A wooden nutcracker was guarding two trees (next to Left both Row)
