In the USA Lutheran church this is known as “Christ the King” Sunday

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your comment!

Laura is referring to “Totensonntag” (Sunday of the Dead), which is the last Sunday before the first Sunday of Advent, so roughly 5 weeks before Christmas (Weihnachten), which is a day to remember loved ones that have passed away.

Thank you!

Laura, does “this holiday” mean Christmas?

avatar GermanPod101.com Thursday at 5:44 pm

Hi GermanPod101.com Listeners!

Thank you for all your comments and feedback.

Paul > During this holiday people in Germany remember and honour their ancestors.

Let us know if you have questions.
Sincerely,
Laura

As I look at the whole list, these are hardly holiday words. At least not a holiday I’d like to celebrate. They’re apt for a funeral.

What the heck is Sunday of the Dead? Is that a German thing?
