Greenness …

“Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

O Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,

Inspired by Malinda Kathleen Reese and her very funny google translate sings (e.g. “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran), I wanted to share the google translate version of the German Christmas carol “Oh Tannenbaum” with you today.

Why not use these lyrics at your family get-together this year? A lot more entertaining than the proper translation…  Merry ho-ho-ho and enjoy the holidays!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
How loyal are your leaves!
You do not only green at summer time,IMG_1016
no, even in winter, when it’s snowing.
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
How loyal are your leaves!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
I like you very much!
How often does not have at Christmas time
a tree of you rejoices me!
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
I like you very much!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
your dress wants to teach me something:
The hope and permanence
gives comfort and strength at all times,
O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree,
Your dress wants to teach me something.
