One sure sign that the holiday season has arrived in the U.S. is the TV marathons of our favorite movie classics, including "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Christmas Story."
Here in Germany there are many signs that it is Christmas time. There are the Christmas markets and the Gluhwein (mulled wine) and of course the Advent wreath.
However, yesterday evening there was the biggest sign of them all. I hear "Last Christmas" by Wham! on the radio. This song will be played over and over again until bad George Michael lyrics start spontaneously spouting from my mouth. I do not which is worse, the fact that it is played all the time or the fact that I secretly like it.
