  1. Interesting, I like your video thanks for sharing . I made a video of moving in Germany . If you like check it out and I already subscribed in your channel, looking forward to see more videos of you , hope we stay connected

  2. You talk much about church! Its a part of Christmas here but not so important as in Cameroon! Youre right ….people call the police but i prefer your point "come and talk to me"! The day between holydays normaly shops are open only small familyshops would decide not opening! Radio and TV you have to pay for national stations per law(cable is free)!

  3. In our family, the 24th is a weird day. Half of the day is preparing for the festivities. That is: cleaning the household, cooking, baking, setting up the Christmas tree etc. .. the other half of the day is attending the Christmas mass, sharing quality time, a meal and presents with the immediate family (often with some Feuerzangenbowle :p). 25th is reserved for close relatives or really good friends… parents, siblings and their families. 26th is time spent with more distant relatives or friends… for example uncles and aunts.

    Quiet Sundays are a gift, IMHO. The benefits of almost being forced to spend some quality time with your friends and family and not being bothered by other people far outweighs the downsides of not being able to shop or so.

    Don't get me started on the GEZ. I would support the idea if the programs were mostly cultural or educational…. but most are actually ad-driven bullshit-programs. Even the once well-respected well-researched news-shows are more often than not trying to push some lobbyist agenda.

    On a complete unrelated point… considering how insanely pretty you are, how is it even legal for you to be here?! Consider me jealous. 😉

  4. A day or two days between a holidays and the weekend is called Brückentag/-tage. It is not a holiday but many people take that day off (using one/two of their days of vacation) to have an opportunity for e.g. a longer trip. Some businesses like doctor's offices also might close down. Don't confuse that with the regular day off with some businesses. Traditionally these were restaurants, museum (also internationally agrred upon) and in the past hairdressers closing on Mondays. That was done because they are open on weekends (not hairdressers!) and wanted to give staff a day without having to work and not have a complicated workshift system. Some restaurants do another, mostly anyway slow, day like Tuesdays off.

  5. Rundfunkbeitrag: This started decades ago when public broadcasting (radio and tv) were available only to a few and the stations were also few and run as public service. Not as entities of the state but independent legal institutions created by the states (Länder). Then you had to pay if you had a radio and or a tv-set. The fee was used to pay for the infrastructure (radio towers, transmission network) and the staff creating the content. Then, when virtually everybody had a tv or radio, it was decided to make every household pay regardless of proof of whether they actually used the services of had a means (receiver, tv-set) to receive them. So everybody who represents a household (singles or families) has to pay for the ARD and ZDF and the Rundfunkräte. The latter decide which commercial radio and tv-stations get a license and which of them had to be fed into the cable network. The commercial stations don't get any money from the state. They have to get their income from advertising. Thus the crappy content like in the US. The public stations should have better programming due the huge amount of monréy they get. But that can be disputed. But your contribution cannot.
    If you have cable then you pay the cable company for the connection not for the content. In short for the better reception and the access to more channels (e.g. international satellite stations). You can set up your own dish for satellite but you still have to pay the Rundfunkbeitrag. The cable fee to e.g Kabel Deutschland is sometimes tied to your lease because the company has made a contract with the landlord. But there are many different arrangements there.
