In southern Germany, it's traditional to bake Christmas Springerle. The ingredients include flour, sugar, anise - and plenty of patience, because it takes several days until the tiny delicacies are ready.

Advent hasn’t even begun, yet Christmas lights are already brightening up many places and streets throughout Europe. We asked you to send in pictures showing how you gear up for the festive season.
It seems Germany practically invented Christmas - or at least many of the symbols associated with it. While we don't like to start thinking about it in the summer, the cookie bakers and tree growers have to.
