Advent Calendar 24 – “Merry Christmas”

Hello everyone,

wow, last door of our Advent Calendar and phew… that whole calendar was a lot of work. So you had better enjoyed it!
You hear me! Have it enjoyed!
If you didn’t, then go back and do it! Do your duty and enjoy thecalendar, for God’s sa… okay, okay, I’ll stop with the silly (for this year. Next year is a whole other story)
I really hope you enjoyed the calendar. I sure did, thanks to all your feedback and comments. It’s really great to interact with you and it’s really really motivating. I might actually do something like this more often, if you liked it. Some sort of  “extreme week” or something.
But that’s all stuff for next year.

So, what’s behind door number 24? A Christmas card.. uh… kinda, sorta.

Emanuel’s Christmas Card (jpg)

Yup, that’s me, hard at work :). If you see me in the streets of Berlin, say hi. And yup. I always wear that hat, even in summer. Oh and yup. I did the drawings. If you want to exhibit my art or purchase a drawing, please contact my agent :).

I wish you guys an amazing, relaxing Christmas and a chill time “zwischen den Jahren”.

Fröhliche Weihnachten euch allen.
(and if you don’t care about Christmas, have a relaxing and chill random few days :)

Oh… I’ll pick the winners of the daily give-away in the coming days and I’ll reach out to you by email.

Oh and the years before I posted my Christmas song of the year, so I want to keep that tradition. This song is nowhere near as cool as the one from last year or the year before and the lyrics are really stupid, but I like it for some reason.

Emanuel,
Thank you so much for ALL the hard work that you have done in ‘German is easy’ over over so many years.
I have enjoyed your post since I discovered them, I have seem developed and grow and i hope to see them grow even more.
I really admire your tenacity and wit.

Thank you for sharing with us the face behind the avatar. You are almost as handsome as your avatar :)

Funny for me, I feel like you are my friend :)

Merry Christmas and enjoy your well deserved break.

Bis Später

And another “Thank you” from me.
I really looked forward to the daily insights into the language. very motivational. (English suffixs (suffices?) just like German)
German is not yet “easy”, but I am beginning to see that it is not difficult, just different. but not sooo different!
This few days of “sillyness” put life into the language for me, Begone “What is your name? My name is… ”
Thank you again and a Happy New Year to you,…… and Thomas and Maria

Emanuel, thank you so much for doing this and for your whole website. You have really helped me understand more about German, and learning alone was getting a bit tiresome. Have a wonderful Christmas—Frohe Weihnachten und ein gesund Neue Jahr! Danke!

Oh wie toll ist deine Karte! Wie Spaß, wie du siehst aus zu sehen. Du siehst gut aus! Danke dir für alle. Ich freue mich jeden Tag den Kalender zu lesen und dein Blog das ganze Jahr. I do not know if I will ever actually become fluent in German but reading what you write helps motivate me. Frohe Weihnachten und Guten Rutsch.

Oh geez was trying to write in German but my phone keeps changing those “misspelled” words. Thankyou so much for doing the calendar and blog! Truly getting my German is easy email is the best start to my day. I love your humor and super interesting lessons. I teach English as a second language and wish I could make English as fun as you make German! Fröliche Weinachten under windows Schönes been Jahr. My phone did that

Emanuel, heartfelt thanks for your wonderful work. I’ve been learning German off and on since the early 80s, and I must say your explanations of various concepts are the best I’ve ever seen. Merry Christmas to you and blessInga for the year ahead.

Emanuel, many thanks for all your hard work on the Advent Calendar. It’s way over my head, but I really enjoyed it, as did my Deutsch-speaking Freunde, Manya, with whom I shared it. Our favorite was the flies fly flying flies….We wish the happiest of holidays and a healthy and happy New Year. Say, how would a Deutsch-speaking Mr. Spock say “Live long and prosper”? (-:
