The Twelve Days of Christmas, Bavarian-style (3)

On the third day of Christmas my Bavarian friend gave to me: three Christmas carols.

In Bavaria, carols remain a large part of Christmas. Though most people in Munich are familiar with ‘Rudolph’ and ‘Frosty’, they tend to stick a bit closer to more traditional songs like ‘Oh Tannenbaum (Oh Christmas Tree)’, ‘Stille Nacht (Silent Night)’ and the ever-present ‘Eva Marie’. If you’d like to hear a real Bavarian carol, go to

Michael V. Owens
Michael Owens was born in San Diego, California, but is a product of the Orlando, Florida, school system. This gave him a love of the ocean and its bounty, a rudimentary education, and a great swing for both baseball (then), and golf (now). He followed his heart and received a diploma in Humanities, which did him absolutely no good in the USA. He didn’t choose Munich; it chose him. Despite his adoration for history, Renaissance art, and medieval philosophy, Michael would prefer to see the world in 2150, rather than in 1150. But it is close.
