Gearing up for Martinmas/Martinstag

The Martinmas/Martinstag feast has sort of snuck up on me this year... in years past, we'd already have been retelling Martin's story at bedtime, and singing songs.

Still, the season is upon me. Now that we've set our clocks back, it's dark when I walk home from the bus stop... and pass a few street lights... that lead me to think of lanterns... and have me humming (if not singing outright!) "Laterne, Laterne" as I head down the hill with a lighter step.

Just in time for our preparations, Sarah at the Alphabet Garten has put together a comprehensive Martinstag unit study for German speakers and learners. Vielen Dank, Sarah! Wir freuen uns schon auf die Nikolaustag Ausgabe. :-)
