    THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS HAS NOT BEEN DIMMED IN DIVIDED GERMANY. IT HAS RISEN ABOVE?

  • Description

    THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS HAS NOT BEEN DIMMED IN DIVIDED GERMANY. IT HAS RISEN ABOVE BERLIN WALL, AND PROVIDES A SEASONAL LINK BETWEEN EAST AND WEST. TWINKLING TREES ON THE FRONTIER ALREADY HERALD THE ARRIVAL OF THE FESTIVE DAYS.

    CHRISTMAS, OF COURSE, IS THE TRADITIONAL TIME OF GIVING. AND THIS BRINGS THE PERENNIAL PROBLEM OF PRESENTS. MANY GIFTS ARE ALREADY ON THEIR WAY FROM WEST GERMANY TO THE EASTERN ZONE. THEY ARE BOUND FOR LESS FORTUNATE FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.

    LUXURY GOODS ARE SCARCE - OR JUST UNOBTAINABLE - OVER THE WALL. AND MANY OF THE PARCELS THAT WILL BE DELIVERED IN EAST GERMANY THIS CHRISTMAS COME INTO THIS CATEGORY. BUT THE WALL HAS ITS CUSTOMS COUNTERPART...

    ONLY CERTAIN TYPES OF ARTICLES CAN BE SENT TO EAST GERMANY. BOTTLES, TINS AND RECORDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED, AND THE QUANTITY OF FOOD IS ALSO LIMITED. IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE REGULATIONS, YOUR PARCEL WON'T REACH ITS DESTINATION. THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT, HOWEVER, PREVAILS.
