In eigener Sache: Merry Christmas

Ho, ho, ho – frohe Weihnachten!

(2010sdafrika-Redaktion)

Und wieder neigt sich ein ereignisreiches Jahr dem Ende zu. In Südafrika passierten viele spannende, interessante und leider auch besorgniserregende Dinge. Wir berichteten über die wichtigsten Ereignisse am Kap. Nun gilt es, die besinnlichste Zeit des Jahres mit Familie und Freunden zu verbringen. Gutes Essen, tolle Geschenke und arbeitsfreie Tage stehen auf dem Programm. Wir, die Redaktion von „SÜDAFRIKA – Land der Kontraste“, wünschen allen Südafrikanern, Südafrika-Liebhabern und Lesern frohe Weihnachten, eine große Portion Besinnlichkeit und leckere Speisen. Genießt die Zeit im Kreis eurer Liebsten und schaltet einfach mal ab – fernab von Smartphones, Nachrichten und Alltagsproblemen.

Merry Christmas, wünscht euch „SÜDAFRIKA – Land der Kontraste“

Ubuntu in Germany Column

Are Germans in South Africa ‚abgekapselt‘ [isloated]?

(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is speaking in her column about life as a South African now living in Germany. The South African journalist lives in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).

A recent interview on this website heard the view from a German journalist in Cape Town that the Germans in South Africa are ‘abgekapselt’ – isolated, living on their own island away from the rest of the community. As I grew up in a German family in South Africa, I can tell how it is from an insider’s point of view…

Ubuntu in Germany Column

Krismis in Africa or Deutschland?

(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is speaking in her column about life as a South African now living in Germany. The South African journalist lives in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).

I was born to Germans, raised partly in Namibia but mostly in South Africa and nine years ago, I left SA and moved to Germany. Now that Christmas is here – the question is – where is better – in South Africa or in Germany?

Weihnachten im südafrikanischen Sommer

Badehose anziehen, Grill anschmeißen und mit Nicht-Christen gemeinsam feiern

(2010sdafrika-Redaktion)

Ein Bilderbuch-Weihnachten braucht Schnee, heiße Getränke zwecks Aufwärmen und den Weihnachtsmarkt. Der heutige 1. Advent regt die Phantasien der Deutschen in Bezug auf winterliche Assoziationen an. Nicht so in Südafrika. Denn die vorweihnachtliche Zeit fällt in der südlichen Hemisphäre auf den Sommer. Recht befremdlich wirkt es daher für deutsche Verhältnisse, wenn in den Malls – den Einkaufszentren in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Durban oder Kapstadt – Tannenbäume aus Plastik stehen, die ein westliches Bild von Weihnachten zu vermitteln versuchen.

© Das südafrikanische Weihnachten und die vorweihnachtliche Zeit werden am Kap deutlich anders gefeiert als im kalten Deutschland. Sonne statt Schnee, Safari statt Weihnachtsmarkt, Badehose statt Winterklamotten. (Quelle: flickr/ Erin Turowski)
