This was my favorite commercial on our TV this year. You know I recall feeling quite lost when I first went to Germany all those years ago. I recall feeling deaf and dumb because I did not speak the language or understand what was being said. People were kind and I did a lot of pantomime to get myself understood.
Over that summer I learned some German to speak it. I could order a meal, ask for the check, and most importantly, ask for a beer!
I did a lot of cooking, therefore I shopped each day. Thankfully there were a lot of pictures on cans, so when I wanted tomato sauce I could find it.
But just imagine that you are a child and it is Christmas in America. Your parents take you to see Santa and you get up to him, and and all you speak is German!
This commercial just touched my heart and made me recall when I was lucky enough to find someone who could speak English to me when I lived in Germany.
