Adventszeit: German Club Creates Gifts for Friends and Family

Last Sunday, the CSB/SJU German Club hosted the annual gingerbread house night in the McKeown Center. An estimated 20 people attended, and students were able to build their own gingerbread houses using homemade Lebkuchen (gingerbread). Paula Doebel, a local supplied the gingerbread and other necessary supplies, as she has in the past. Students engaged in a friendly atmosphere while building their houses and listening to Christmas music.  Everyone enjoyed being able to take a short study break to de-stress before diving into finals week. The event began at 7:15pm and most students stayed until around 8:30 when they had finished building their houses. After the event, students were able to take their completed houses home with them. The event was an overall success and we continuing this German tradition here at CSB/SJU.
