Adolf Wagner Appfelwein - alles da 
It was a chilly Saturday, so we ended up in a traditional German restaurant, Adolf Wagner. And had local seasonal traditional Geese for dinner. Here we are before the Dinner was served.
Appfle Wein mit Selters 
In this famous establishment they make their own appel wine.
Which is as well a local tradition in this part of Germany (Hessen).
It’s 85% appelwein and the rest is Selters (Sparkling Water). If you will go to this place in the evenings, you have to reserve. It’s very popular.

We went home to our dear family and guess what?  Have a great time.

Tyskarna kan verkligen det där med julfirande.
Det går åt mycket lampor för att få det att lysa så.

I don't know what happened I must have overlooked you in my Google Reader, now I am catching up on your blog !
Frankfurt is the town I was born and where my whole family is coming from. My parents married there and and my grandparents lived there too. Now there are still some relatives left not living in Frankfurt but nearby. Imagine besides my birth day I have never been there, only at the station where my grandpa picked me up to go further to Schlüchtern where they lived !

Your grandson is a cutie ! mine is now 2 weeks old. Thanks to Skype I can see him regularly !

Many years ago I was a student at the U of Frankfurt/M and had frequent opportunities to enjoy the aeppelwoi (apfelwein, but pronounced in Frangfurderisch), especially in the entertainment district across the Main River, Sachsenhausen. Apparently the market is held in the square at the Roemer, where the Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire once were chosen.... Prost!
