Germany's soft ginger honey cakes lebkuchen or pfefferkuchen are possibly the first cookies/cake traditionally associated with Christmas.
And we are able to think of sublime and beautiful things with the same ease as we think of walnuts, punch and pfefferkuchen.
So over those wonderful few days every year, we'd spend our time in each other's company singing Christmas carols, eating special Christmas cakes my grandmother's pfefferkuchen, and her homemade marzipan!
