We like to sing!

The seal of approval by the German choir association awarded to nursery schools which excel in music education. It reads: We like to sing!

A verse of a well-known and well-liked children’s song, sung by children waiting for St Nicolas:

  • Let us all be cheery and bright
  • And look forward to Nicolas’ night.
  • Merrily, merrily, ding ding dong!
  • It’s Nicolas evening before too before long.

The verse is part of a mural on the side of the Hornbacher Steinhäusel in a village in the Odenwald. The rest of the description reads:

“- and those who don’t know any better and don’t believe it should come with us to the Krähberg, to the proper Steinhäusel, to experience St Nicolas’ evening with the village youths, which is happening every year.”
