Gemütlichkeit 2017

Once again we celebrated German New Years in New Hampshire at the reasonable hour of 6 PM, EST. No need to wait any longer.  We had sky laterns, chinese food, fireworks and a Feuerzangenbowle. That is all that is needed to ring in the new year.

These are not safe devices and we only did this because the ground is completely covered in snow. Still this one managed to get caught in a tree. No damage to life or property.

Continuing a New Years tradition of fire, we watched a rum soaked sugar cone burn and drip into spiced wine.

Drip, drip drip
