Uta’s December Diary 2017


The other day Peter made some “Papierschlangen” (paper snakes). He remembered how he learned to make these as a nine year old at a boys’ home in Friedland (Silesia) where he was to be away from the bomb raids over Berlin.


Peter did hang up his paper snakes at various places in our living room.





He also found some colourful electric lights to hang up. I think we used to have them on our old Christmas tree.

Here are some books for the great-grandsons to enjoy when they come to visit.

  1. Oh, I love the paper snakes Peter made! They are festive! I remember making those as a little girl. We called them paper chains. πŸ™‚

    How long did Peter have to live at the boys’ home in Friedland?

    I love Christmas lights!

    And those books look like fun for the great-grandsons!
    Elmo is a favorite at our house! πŸ™‚
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
