Many Germans watch the same black-and-white British comedy sketch every single New Year's Eve. Rachel Stewart gets into character and explains all in this Meet the Germans remake of Dinner for One.
Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. Every two weeks she explores a new topic — from allotment gardens to money to language.
This week Rachel slips into the role of Miss Sophie — a character in a comedy sketch, "Dinner for One," which has somehow become a vital part of New Year's Eve celebrations in Germany.
