No matter what the wheather says: In december it is time for Germans to have their weekly dose of Glühwein! A German speciality made of hot redwine, cloves, lemon and more.

This has never happened to me before. Who the bloody hell hell steals a bottle of 3,99 Euro redwine??! I was sooo angry! No kidding! I forgot the bottle after grocery shopping and it was gone the next morning. So I had to run to the shops again… bought the same bottle.
