Re: Happy Unity Day!

I'm not a German, of course, but I was one month into my second year of German language classes in high school when reunification occurred and our teacher had a special day of celebration to commemorate the event. If I recall, we were treated to genuine (or as close as genuine as you can get with an American woman cooking and making them using the native German recipes) Deutschlander foods.

After a lifetime of school classes that had World and European maps showing two Germanys it was a bit of an adjustment to see the first maps depicting one solid, single and reunified Bundesrepublik, but very pleasant and rewarding. That meant the Cold War was finally ending and a lot of the worst fears of my childhood and teenage years were receding and going away.
