Hey everybody! Today we’re traveling to Germany to discuss the history of Christmas there, and the super interesting character named der Weihnachtsmann! You’ll learn all about the different traditions that have been around for hundreds of years and how they have evolved and influenced how the Yuletide time is celebrated today. As promised here’s some notes from this episode – Knecht Ruprecht (aka Krampus) and Odin (Hruod Percht / Rhumreicher Percht).
