Dinner for One: What's behind this bizarre German New Year's Eve tradition?

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.
