    Didn't know about it. (Don't follow ethnic holidays that closely, though.)

    My German side of the family is from Germantown, PA, too. ;)

    Although not strictly of German heritage part of my ancestry is comprised of German people, back in the day, as is my wife's. A lot of places in Missouri my home state is German settlements in origin. One place I know of you can visit and see the names of certain buildings all being in German.

    Thanks Horror. Prosit.

    I'm about as German as it gets. I was actually born in Nuremburg. Sadly, in the 25 years I have been a cop in Texas, I am quite sure I have eaten ten times as much Mexican food as I have German food.

    I have two birth certificates, German and American. Trying to figure out some way to use that to my benefit.

    Guten Tag Amigo!

    My step grandmother always said my grandfather was German in the boardroom and French in the bedroom [/awkward family moments]
