  • Hi Stefani surched to find out what Graetima means.

    Madeleine, I have just discovered your nice video and wanted to tell you how much it reminded me of the pre-Christmas traditions from my childhood in Bavaria. We also celebrate St. Nicholas Day with oranges and nuts and small gifts for family and friends, but I cannot remember having a special pastry on this day, although it seems to be widespread in other parts of Germany, too. I do remember Gingerbread men, which are sugary. I understand the “ma” meaning “man”, what does the first part of the word mean? Anyway, it is an excellent idea to create a vegan version, and one can very well see that you are an artist by the sophisticated way you are designing your little bread girl. 🙂
