Montgomery Catholic Students Learn About Germany 1

Montgomery Catholic Holy Spirit campus celebrated their annual Cultural Day this year learning all about Germany! They had a special visit from Coach Wulf Koch, our boy’s varsity soccer coach, and 11th-grade History teacher. He taught them about various aspects of life in Germany. The students had a wonderful day reading Hansel and Gretel, making paper cuckoo clocks, and learning about the German Christmas tradition of the Christmas pickle. Typically on Christmas Eve, parents will hide a pickle ornament deep in the tree’s branches. On Christmas morning the first child to find the pickle would receive an extra gift from St. Nicholas. Students were also able to partake in German-made, Haribo gummy bears and soft pretzels for snacks. It was a great day learning about a new culture!
