FNG: Da Kine
Announced: The Mission Statement, Disclaimer, and Five Core Principles. It was a nice chilly morning and Yodel made sure to bring extra coupons because some people always forget them ��. He made sure to keep the HIM excited and told them that they would soon find out who would bring the presents back home in Austria.

While we know Santa in Austria, we do things a little bit different. Christkind or baby jesus as you would say in English brings the gifts on the evening of the 24 th . Kids won’t see the tree until that evening and it truly leads up to a magical evening. At midnight we go to church to celebrate Jesus’ birthday! Yodel also shared another tradition called “Funken”. It’s a huge bonfire with a witch on top of it (filled with some explosives) Every year we do this to get rid of the evil winter ghosts and welcome the next season, Spring, into our homes! This is a huge event happening before Easter in every town in my home state Vorarlberg.
