Holidays in Germany - I would love to travel and spend some time in Germany, since I was born in Augsburg Germany, while my Dad who was in the U.S. Army was stationed there. My sister, Kerry, was also born in Germany, a couple years ahead of me, but she was lucky and has been able to visit Germany since then. When she went to Augsburg, she brought me home a china plate from Augsburg, which means a lot to me!
My kids are both half German, (last name STORZ), so I would love for all of us to be able to tour the Country one day together. I'm pretty sure that my son Ryan, would want to time a trip to take advantage of going to the Oktoberfest festivals, but I would love to be able to spend a Christmas in Germany, visit where I was born, and tour all the amazing castles! Ideally, it would be amazing to actually go live in Germany for a year and have the opportunity to celebrate all of the Holidays and attend all of the many festivals.
Ryan tells me we are related to the owners of Storz Chocolate in Tuttlingen. It is amazing Chocolate! They are famous for having Chocolates decorated for all the different Holidays, like Easter, Christmas Chocolates that can be used as Tree Ornaments, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Halloween. They have a "bug" collection, and one of my favorites are the ladybug Chocolates. The only places that we have found these in the U.S., is at World Market, or Amazon. Most of the Chocolates have the name "STORZ", on them, so my kids always thought they were fantastic! Now my grandkids can all get spoilt with them on holidays!
Our Mom and Dad have two cabinets full of the amazing German Beer Steins that they bought when they were stationed in Germany.
Germany borders 9 countries (Austria, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Luxemburg, Holland, Czech Republic, and Poland)
Germany is made of sixteen different States. I'll list the abbreviations that I'm using on the different Holidays and Observances, as some of them are only observed in some of the States:
All the Holidays in Germany information below will give the 2023 Date, Holiday Name, Holiday Type, and Where it is observed...in the event the Holiday is not celebrated in all of the States in Germany. Ultimately, we will have a Daily Holidays Page for each of the Days of the Year, and a devoted page for each of the Holidays and Observances listed below. Pages completed will be linked up below once they are done.
If a Holiday does not have 2023 after it below, that means that it is observed annually on the same day. Those with 2023 listed after the date, are movable holidays that are observed on different days each year.
The video above, show a lot of the beautiful scenery in Germany, as well as some of the Castles, like the Neuschwanstein Castle which was the inspiration for the Disneyland Castle.
Many people travel during the longer holidays for vacations, or to
spend time with family living in a different area. I highly recommend
Germany, and I am hoping that one day, I am able to go back to visit the Country I was born in. It is an awesome Country with so many unique, and fun things to do.
