Thanks for that, Rhubarb! Agreed. I'm thinking at least until Wednesday at the very least. We'll see.

You're welcome I think this is far too good a topic to let it be overlooked.

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

hmm, looks like we don't get more contestants. How about each of us entering 2 pics?

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Could, but unless all of us have two pics to enter, that would be more limiting than what we have now in terms of requirements. Though I do want to thank you for your enthusiasm! It was something of an experiment seeing as there are many creative people here, though I must admit that I'm surprised there weren't more entries considering the weather is something we all experience.

I'm willing to move on to the voting stage unless there are any objections?

I think you should wait over the weekend...remember, you're in the middle of a major holiday in the US...no one can think of ANYthing other than that turkey. Why not give them the weekend to recover from over-eating?

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

I'm just not out and around enough during daylight to find something for this sort of contest... but I did find this little tree on the side of the Hans Christian Andersen-museum:

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

cool pic, trekkiedane! The tree looks like it dropped right out of a fairy tale. Maybe it comes from Narnia

Hmm... would a turkey pic count as a seasonal one, I wonder?

Well, it's more about the weather. But maybe a future contest could be about holidays?

One of the many places on the Weihnachtsmarkt in Flensburg where I had Punsch / Glühwein (mit Schuss selbstverständlich ) today had this sign:

That works. Nicely done

I have no idea what it says, other than maybe... Apple Punch with alcohol, and Cocoa and some kind of tea?

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Punsch - aka. Glühwein = mulled wine.
Apfelpunsch = mulled (non-alcoholic) apple something or other.
Bratapfelpunsch, I have no idea what is.
Kakao = (Hot) Chocolate.
Jägertee - Black tea w. rum.

When at an x-mas market in Germany you'll rarely have to walk more than three minutes inbetween kiosks offering these things

It says:

punch
apple punch (non-alcoholic)
baked-apple punch
cocoa
hunter's tea


Hunter's tea is tea with rum. It has 12-15 vol% alcohol, so it's quite dangerous stuff.
Baked-apple punch is hot apple wine with spices (cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, perhaps a hint of cardamom or star anise). Often it contains a good deal of apple brandy as well.

I don't know about other Christmas markets, but in my region you don't have to walk 3 mins between those stands but hardly ever more than 10 yards. Usually, every second booth offers mulled wine and punch.

TD, your German is obviousely far better than I thought!
