As we all know, Christmas is a time of silence and reflection. People retreat from noisy life for a while, gather in warm rooms, eat fat birds and drink mulled wine.
Damaged by their socialist upbringing, they celebrate Christmas differently, in the Volksbühne with cheerful stories, loud music, vodka and wine. Yes, says your inner Santa Claus, it was a bad year. But do not worry. Christmas is over quickly.
A new year will come, that's almost certain. And it will be even louder than the last one.
Afterwards: Kaminer's disco in the Red Salon!
