The German Club at Boise State is for anyone interested in German language and culture! The German Club is a club based on expanding our knowledge about German culture which includes music, art, political issues, and more.
We also encourage using and expanding our use of the language. We recruit new students and bring awareness to new students of German as a possible major or minor--and the benefits of doing such. We hold fun German cultural events all year round (including major German holidays) for everyone to participate in. Knowledge of the language is not a must.
Operating as usual
Spanish Speakers Have More Job Options, German Speakers Make More Money A new study of job listings show that many jobs are open for people who speak Spanish but people who speak German or Portuguese earn more money.

February 2 = Candlemas (Mariä Lichtmess) and Groundhog Day – Candlemas was a legal holiday in mostly Catholic Bavaria until 1912. "If Candlemas Day is clear and bright, winter will have another bite." The European badger became a groundhog in the US. PHOTO: D.

Update: Danke für eure Hinweise. Uns ist ein Fehler unterlaufen. "The King's Man – The Beginning" ist schon am 06.01. gestartet.
Ein Wolkenkratzer is a Skyscraper but literally a Cloud Scraper, while ein Nilpferd is a Nile horse although we know it as Hippopotamus, and what some of us have after the last days is Hüftgold - love handles. I prefer the German version, ‘hip gold’ ... 🙂
A few literal German/English translations to take your mind off the cold, gray, wet winter months for a few minutes. At least for those of us here in the northern hemisphere.

They emerge from the mist ... dressed in fur with fearsome masks. On the move in the twelve Rauhnächte, rough nights, between Christmas and Epiphany.
It is the 'Zeit Zwischen Den Jahren', when doors to the Geisterwelt, spirit world, were believed to open so demons and evil spirits roamed the earth. Causing chaos and fear from Weihnachten until Dreikönigstag. Twelfth Night.
A custom followed since the 14th century in the Bavarian-Austrian Alpine region.
And those closets had better be filled with clean clothes, as no washing should be done during the Rauhnächte.
It brings bad luck, or so it is said. And not only because, while it is hanging outside to dry, wilden Geister, rampaging through the area, might get tangled up in the clotheslines ... in revenge bringing bad luck to those homes for the following year.
Even in these days of energy hungry tumble dryers and not so much of clothes lines, stockpiling the laundry is a Brauchtum, custom, still followed in some German speaking Alpine regions during the twelve days of Christmas.🙂
Most of us don't have a team of stylists and lighting specialists to ensure we look fabulous in photos from every angle. Often there's one side that's our best. In German, your "good side" is your SCHOKOLADENSEITE (chocolate side).
So, as friends and family insist on taking countless photos of you over the holidays, make sure they catch your SCHOKOLADENSEITE!
Zum Glück! Es geht wieder bergauf! 😀 ☀️
