I know 50 years of being married to the same person is a big deal, but compare to Germany, we Canadians are dropping the ball.
One night all the neighbors got together and decorated the front entrance with a giant wreath with gold roses and ribbons. After the couple comes out of the house and offers everyone a drink, then the neighbors sing, another round of drinks, sing again, more drinks, and then we eat.
This is the night I bonded with the family (the daughters and granddaughters). They started to play music, German music, so I am not paying much attention. Then I hear something different, I thought I must be hearing it wrong, no Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing. I start singing along, and so do all the relatives. It's one of their favs. Who knew? The rest of the night we listen to the classics and dance - Good times
Next day is the big party - over 120 in attendance. The hall is so beautiful! Check out my pictures from that night. THE FOOD - I have never seen that much food. If I had only taken a little of everything, I would had to make three trips back to try everything.
After, various people did skits and songs, most not related to 50th, but good all the same. There is one I took notes and will perform when I get back to Canada.
For the first half of the night, it's German music, than the daughters ask the DJ to play the good stuff, which means Canadian & American Music. Here I am in Germany dancing to Kate Perry - Califorina Girls, thinking does any else know what she saying or are they just dancing.........
Fun Fun Fun night
