It’s that time of year again! Here’s a catch-all thread for holiday pics, videos, and chatting. What is your favorite part about the season? What are you giving or what do you want to get this Christmas? Are you traveling to be with family or staying home?

I love making gingerbread, but it just doesn’t feel season-appropriate outside December and I have a hard time getting other people to eat them if it’s not the right season. Anyway, last year I found a recipe that makes these puffy fluffy gingerbreads, but they’re not very flavorful. I did some experiments with packing in way more spices and I think it’s much better now, but I want to do even more fiddling with the recipe this year.

I hate that you can only buy "Lebkuchen" from the end of August to the beginning of January. I don't care for the season, I don't care for religious holidays, I care for gingerbread, let me buy it throughout the whole year.
Don't know what spices you use, but cinnamon, anise, fennel, cardamom, coriander, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg are conman spices in gingerbread in Germany and for my taste, the more the better.

oh, I never had homemade stollen, I've got an old Austrian cookbook, there are very nice recipes in it, maybe they have a stollen recipe. Did no one in your family kept track of the recipe of your great grandmother so you could try to make it yourself? One year I bought a very good one at the supermarket but they changed the recipe and now it tastes like shit, so, I need to find a good recipe and make it myself.

they are a similar, but you really should try stollen. If you like marzipan get the one filled with it and if you look to make one yourself, use butter and no other oil, it doesn't taste right without butter. Some people like a rather dry texture, I'm more for the fluffy stuff with butter and don't forget the powdered sugar on it, kek.

No. 171738

I'm the no tree person, because I don't celebrate christmas, but if I had to, I would get a real one with roots. Somehow I don't like the idea of cutting down plants just for decoration, so I would get a tree and plant it in my garden after christmas (if I had a garden)

But I love white trees, like nonna >>171718 they look so nice and would fit to the way I would decorate my home (if I had money, kek)

I hate christmas trauma, everyone is happy and you just remember all the fucked up stuff that happend around that time. Hope you can have a nice relaxed christmas this year.

I personally really like my fake tree. It’s not perfect, but often the real trees we used to get were pretty shitty and bare in spots, so the fake tree is guaranteed to look more uniform. I also just don’t like letting a tree die for a month in my house and then tossing it. plus my fake tree has lights already, so we just add another layer of colorful lights and it ends up looking very cozy

Samefag, I just happened to find a marzipan stollen at Trader Joe’s the other day! I have nothing to compare it to so I can’t say how it ranks compared to other stollen, but it’s pretty good. I really like the marzipan and the powdered sugar. My one complaint is that it’s a little on the dry side compared to panetón, but the marzipan definitely makes up for that. Now if I make one I will have a baseline to compare it to!

No. 172718

If you aren't vegan, use some good tasting butter instead of the other fat choices. And yes, Stollen is a little bit drier than Paneton. I had a look and found this recipe https://www.chefkoch.de/rezepte/1833611297339517/Butterstollen-Thueringer-Art.html (sry, it's in German) and it sounds really nice and not dry at all, if you need help translating anything, just let us Germans know.

Just over two weeks left nonnas!!! I'm so excited!

I commissioned a small time jeweler for some matching custom bracelets for me and my best friends. It's not the most high end jewelry, but I think the look and feel of her stuff doesn't easily give that away. It's been so great to work with her and have something special and custom made just for us. I've been getting progress pictures and I desperately wish I could send them to my friends to see because I could cry over how much I adore these bracelets already, but then I remember they're the ones this is for!!! I don't want to ruin the surprise if I can help it. I think we'll be going out for dinner sometime after so I'm trying to get everyone to go all at once so they can all get their presents at the same time!

My parents are immigrants and work in the restaurant business so Christmas isn't really a thing in my family. We've never had a tree and don't even exchange presents. It kind of sucks because all of my friends celebrate with their families so I wait until before or after to celebrate it with them. I don't hold anything against my parents for not celebrating since it doesn't stop me from enjoying the holidays anyway. At the very least, I buy a cake every year for us to enjoy and just sharing that is enough for me.

I bought a vintage Christmas sweater last year and I'm so excited to wear it. It is a little over the top but so cute. I told myself I'd only buy one "ugly" christmas sweater and that would be the only one for the rest of my life since it's only appropriate for once a year, but now I want more. I want one for every day leading up to Christmas. I fucking love Christmas and the holiday season so much, I don't even know what it is. It feels so magical and lovely.

One day in the future, I hope I can move out to a nice place and have a nice Christmas tree. I want to invite friends and family over and host Christmas dinner for them. Of course I'll have my bedroom open for my parents to go and sleep in once they get bored (they used to do that when we would go to my aunt's for Christmas kek). I want to play video games and board games with everyone, and if I have dogs, I will dress them up in their own silly little Christmas sweaters (which I want to knit myself) and have reindeer horns for them.
