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!

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?
