Die Feuerzangenbowle - A German classic

While most German families are now either already unpacking the presents or prepare dinner (or are on the way back from church), i am sitting on the sofa with my dad. We are watching an old German film: Die Feuerzangenbowle.

The movie is from 1944 and was produced to lift the mood of the Germans during the war. Despite the Nazi goverment, this movie has nothing to do with their ideology. It a truly funny black and white movie about a young teacher starting a new job in a boys' lyceum, having fun w his students.  Still a great movie. 

Feuerzangenbowle is a hot alcoholic drink that comes "flambé".

Tomorrow more! !

With lots of love and peace from PocketGerman ♡♡♡
