Did you know that Germans made the first artificial Christmas trees? It’s true! They said, “Do you know how cold it is?! Ach! I am not going out there!”
I’m pretty sure “Ach” is a common German saying. I don’t know anybody who IS German. But I did play a German woman once in a play. So, technically, I’m an expert in Germanology.
Due to this lack of desire to freeze their spritzes off, they made some fake trees. Out of goose feathers.
I don’t know much about geese. They may or may not enjoy a defeathering. I never have a problem when I get MY defeathering done, but I’m not a goose.
They took these goose feathers and dyed them. I’m guessing green, but that isn’t in the story. I actually kinda hope that they dyed them all sorts of different colors. Because that would be so pretty!
Imagine having a soft and fluffy rainbow Christmas tree! THAT is what I call a Christmas miracle!
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, your rainbow feathers amaze me.
It’s ok for you to sing that. It’s a new holiday classic.
If you don’t have a goose, you might as well just make a tree out of cotton candy. Any color would work. I like pink. Then you can eat the tree. And build a new one. Then eat that one, too.
Or, if you’re in Germany, Das Butterbrot might be a good alternative.
I’m off to dampfnudel. Ach.
