12:43 am
the i come from sweden time from cuba. i'm from venezuela. if i come from brazil, i'm from thailand. from brazil. wine national, the round of mold wine among friends, though in lou back, you should also give the foyer sung and bow and try. but be where it's alcohol. content is quite high. on the, on the phone at some point sang and bullet is the sugarloaf on top. it's ok hyper rum and then from bait until the sugar life is melted from the recipe with red wines. i'm orange, have certain spices, i rum and mall. why he was invited. ah, there is nothing like a mug of floyd song and bold to warm your heart on cold days. like

a trip to lou back at christmas time just wouldn't be as sweet without a visit to cafe. need a vega here. you can get a taste of the festive holiday confection. lou back is famous for martha han ah, ah, ah motley fung date. martha pan consists mainly of 2 ingredients, almon and sugar. and we are neither still make at the traditional way guns. i parties from that to give the mars the pan that roasted aroma. we still roasted in old copper kettle was kept, and then we had a secret ingredient lifeline as to which i can't reveal. but a small lexus mission does reveal the firm's history. in 18 o 6, johan gay or canada opened a cafe. soon afterwards he started to make martha pan, often pressing it into mould like these. and this is his original recipe.
12:45 am
though unfortunately, the secret ingredient is written on the back. martha pan can be formed into virtually any shape like these life sized figures. for instance. incidentally, the man with a top hat is johan gay or neat vega himself there's even a replica of blue back to old town made almost entirely of martha pan. ah, so these are the 3 must do that lu, backs christmas samples on lou back mars. upin sipped some boiled song and bola and enjoy the flare of the old town with german christmas. markets are
12:46 am
also a great place to find tree decorations and not all of them traditional christmas pickles. for example, this is a trend that comes over to us from the united states. the pickles are really popular. they're apparently because they're thought of as typically german. but you won't find them on many trees here. d, w reporter halle rollinson, set out to solve the christmas pickle. mystery. ah, yes. the christmas pickle. a beloved in time under german tradition. at least that's what i was told. but i'm in berlin at cody bay. germany's biggest department store and i can't find a single one in these christmas trees. are all the pay. oh, but luckily i brought my own, but let me back up where i come from united states. many people think that all
12:47 am
germans hang a single pickle on their 1st mystery. even many american families follow this so called german tradition. so according to this tradition, the 1st person to find the christmas pickle on the christmas tree, yet an extra gift. but to be honest, i haven't seen or heard of a single christmas pickle in germany since i've lived here. so i'm going to ask some germans during their christmas shopping if they've heard of it. bang indeed, are you, hey, a christmas pickle on your christmas tree. this year i knocked so loud that must be a tradition elsewhere. it's not a german tradition. pardon me, do you mean to try and strong cucumber is not my favorite vegetable music crystals . gunter crystals pickles no. no. what's the christmas picking up we'll give wants to you do wouldn't even had to explain it to santa and germany. in fact, 12016 survey found that 91 percent of germans had never heard of it. so if this tradition isn't german, where does it come from?
12:48 am
and how did it end up in the united states? with a little christmas magic, i'm headed to the small german mountain village of now share in their india to explore that a bit more. if anyone knows the origin of a particular glass ornament, it's the people of lucia. they've been blown glass here since 1597 and producing ornaments in the mid 19th century glass blemish. ion holland is the 4th generation to take over his family christmas ornament business. he hand makes and sells glass ornaments, including the christmas pickle to buyers worldwide. but actually he only learned about the tradition in recent years on a visit to california. i was asked and also you also make christmas pickle. thanks . i just laughed. but then someone else asked me the same question until a 3rd, and i started wondering what is it with these christmas pickles of anson one explained that its tradition in germany. it's a hang a pickle on your christmas tree. and that is,
12:49 am
every american knows. this was modeling nobody in germany doses cried butcher. oh, that made him curious. so he came home to search through his grandfather's glass molds from the 19 thirty's shop. not even my found this gurkin windows since then we've been producing these glass pickles. oh, now he sells pickle. ornaments to customers in places like japan, norway, switzerland, and of course the united states. but if he just learned about this tradition, then where did the story start? well, there are handful legend surrounding the origin of the christmas pickle. no one says that a prison guard took pity in a starving german born soldier during the american civil war and allowed him to eat a single pickle. with this act of kindness, he was able to survive and began hanging a pickle on the street each year. some say it was this man frank w woolworth, who needed a gimmick when he began importing ornaments from germany to the u. s. in 1880 s. but maybe i need to ask someone who knows this christmas town the best. so i'm
12:50 am
meeting la shamir, nor but sits mon at elliot spark last winter, founded in 1853. this is the oldest, still existing glasses in town, mister mer 0. the tradition of the christmas pickle is determined by not school go home. we were confused. assistant, a christmas pickle up. what's that? that's what we learned that abroad and people are convinced the christmas pickle is an essential german christmas item made. and lucia is personally, i think some clever marketing guy invented this. one site is opposite sandwich or now has been making glass pickles quite simply because foreigners believe it's a local specialty of motor convicts to corker. ok, so i still don't have an exact answer, but there might still be hope. i'm going to talk to gary ross, a local who came across the pickle tradition in his research for a magazine and marcia glass. so what can you tell us about the history of the christmas pickle helped me should not be washed. i did some research and found out
12:51 am
that a some family tradition of giving that person i'm found the special christmas tree decoration on the tree. the 1st largest gift on the screws, though that the asperger's actually on dark. that's how the christmas pico story originated her. why not squiggle mark so we may never know exactly where this pickle tradition comes from, but it certainly is a little bit of fun. and me, one day the germans will know what i'm talking about. but until then, i have an idea i our christmas theme tour of germany reaches berlin. the streets and squares of the capital are festooned with twinkling lights. and most of the cities christmas markets are open again this year till we counted more than 40. we take you along to the christmas market and friend of the red city hall in the downtown district of
