FC: My Birthday in Germany | By: Lindy Erikson
1: My name is Steffen and I am from Germany. Today is my birthday and I will be turning 8.
3: We first plan indoor and outdoor games. My favorite game is called "schnitzeljadg". This is a treasure hunt where we read clues to find the hidden treasure.
5: Before I open all of my presents in front of my friends and family, they will sing a song to me. My family always sings me "Zum Geburtstag Viel Gluck" which means Happy Birthday to you.
6: This is called "kinderbowle" which means fruit punch | This is called "spagettinester" which means spaghetti
7: Then the food is served. We have a main course, drinks, treats, and sweets.
9: My favorite meal is "wurstchen im schlafrock". We call it pig legs in a blanket because we wrap hot dogs in a biscuit.
11: My favorite drink is "eisschokolade" which is a chocolate float. This tastes so good because it is chocolate milk and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
13: This is my favorite part of the meal. I love eating "ein haufen dreck". This means a pile of dirt. It is chocolate pudding, graham crackers (or oreos), and gummy worms.
15: These are many favorite things to do and eat on my birthday. What are you favorite things to do on your birthday?
