In Germany, carol singers traditionally known as "Sternsinger" dress up like the Three Wise Men and go from door to door, collecting money during the Twelve Days of Christmas.
The men were being driven home after picking tomatoes when their van crashed into an oncoming truck. The second such crash in two days, it highlights the precarious working conditions foreign laborers face in Italy.
Fall, autumn, sweater weather — whatever you want to call the cold, gray season leading up to Christmas, there's one thing we can all agree on: It's pumpkin time, and never more so than on today's Pumpkin Day!
Men's and women's teams from the British and German armies played a pair of commemorative friendlies in Nottingham, days before the centenary of the end of World War I. Even in the trenches, football never died.
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.
