It is not that I am a big fan of Germany or its people for any particular reason or personal connections, but from my few visits and trips to some cities I have an official announcement to make. When it comes to big holidays, like Easter and Christmas, German people really know how to bring out the festive spirit and decorate. Maybe it is the rustic tone of their ornaments and the fact that it perfectly fits their architecture and wooden interiors. Or it could be the traditional colors they usually choose like red, green and gold. All in all I love seeing every space decorated, every house, big or small and especially hotels. They really know how to make you feel at home with their open spaces, non locked halls and little terraces, where you can sit wherever you want and grab an apple, a cup of tea, read leaflets and treat yourself with small sweets.
I will give you a small glimpse of the hotel atmosphere during my last short visit. It was near the touristic alpine South-East Germany, covered in snow.

Can you guess? The breakfast nook. My favorite place in the world wherever I go.
How cute are this teddies?
What is your personal experience with the decorating traditions?
Do you think there is a particular country who does it best and why?
I'd love to know more, because as you already are aware of,
I love holidays and festive decorations :)
