Christmas and Corona

I know, probably nobody can hear it anymore, but unfortunately Corona is on everyone's lips again or again. Especially now that we are close to Christmas time, it may reappear for many. And then we received this text from a reader that we would like to publish unchanged.

Christmas in "strange" times

For eight children you need about one liter of grape juice, one liter of orange juice and half a liter of strong fruit tea as you like (blueberries are particularly delicious for child-friendly mulled wine, or a fruit mix). Use sugar sparingly. "Delicious children's mulled wine for cold days" read more
