Weihnachtstee und Melwins Stern / Christmas Tea and Melwin's Star


Willkommen zur heutigen Teestunde. Sterne gehören einfach zu Advent und Weihnachten. Sogar der blau gesprühte Weihnachtsstern funkelt vor Sternchen. Ein besonders liebes Kinderbuch heißt Melwins Stern. Als meine Kinder klein waren, habe ich im Advent manchmal solche Bücher vorgelesen.
 
Nathan Zimelman / Anette Bley: Melwins Stern 1994, ISBN 3-7607-1009-3

Welcome to todays Tea Time. Stars are art of Advent and Christmas. Even the blue sprayed Poinsettia sparkles with tiny stars. Melwin's star is a super lovely childrens book. When my children were little, I read for them such books sometimes in Advent.

--ooOOoo--

Melwin ist ein ganz kleiner Engel. Eines Tages wird er zum Sternenputzer ernannt. Er bekommt nur einen ganz winzig kleinen Stern, aber den putzt er mit viel Liebe und Hingabe.



Melwin is a very small angel. One day he is appointed to be a star cleaner. He gets only a very tiny star, but he cleans it with lots of love and devotion.

--ooOOoo--

Und schließlich ist es kurz vor Weihnachten und von allen Sternen soll der Schönste ausgesucht werden, um das Christkind zu erfreuen. Viele große Engel stehen mit ihren prächtigen Sternen vor Melwin in der Reihe. Und kurz vor dem Ende kommt auch noch der Erzengel Gabriel, der ein echter Siegertyp ist. Am Ende fällt Gottes Wahl aber doch auf Melwins blinkenden Stern.

And finally, it is just before Christmas, and from all the stars the most beautiful is to be chosen to delight the Christ Child. Many upgrown angels stand with their magnificent stars before Melwin in the queue. And just before the end comes also the Archangel Gabriel, who is a real winner. But at the end God's choice falls to Melwins flashing star.

--ooOOoo--

Und während sich Gott und Melwin über den Wolkenrand beugen und nach dem Stern sehen, sagt Gott: "Wie gut er dahin passt. Sein Licht macht alles froh, was er bescheint." Und unter ihnen blitzen die Lichter der Stadt Bethlehem.


And while God and Melwin lean over the edge of the clouds and look after the star, God says, "How well it fits there. Its light makes everything happy, what he shines on." And among them flash the lights of the town of Bethlehem.

Pamela gave me the hint, that there exist a similar book in USA: The shiniest star. Not exactly the same but maybe the template fot he German book. You can look at it here:

--ooOOoo--

 Das Buch vermittelt kindgerecht, dass es im Leben nicht so sehr auf die Wichtigkeit einer Aufgabe ankommt, als vielmehr darauf, jede Aufgabe mit Liebe und Sorgfalt zu erfüllen. Ich habe mir bei meinem goldenen Serviettenstern seeeeehhhhhr viel Mühe gegeben. Damit ihr es auch mal versuchen könnt,folgt ein fremdes Youtube-Video, wie man es macht.


The book provides child-friendly that it does not depend so much on the importance of a task in life, rather than on fulfilling every task with love and care. I have made veeeeeery much  efforts with folding my golden napkin star. For your own trial sometimes, follows an external Youtube video on how to do it.

Ich wünsche euch viele blinkende Sterne.

  3. What a beautiful sentiment for a story during this season. I love your beautiful blue poinsettia. The china is one of my favorite"s and is displayed in my dinette at the lake house. Your star theme with the star shape is lovely plus the pierced plate with the treats!

  5. Hello Johanna
    I'm thinking the lady folding the napkin star is a master of origami. :-). It looked easy enough until all the little triangles had to be formed. You have much patience to create your gold star, it is beautiful.
    The book is new to me but sounds like a good one for children, thanks for sharing your delightful tea table today.

  12. Hey pretty lady, what a gorgeous post! I love your tea table with lovely dishes, cookies and great tea. The story book for children sounds adorable, I always read to my g'girls when they go to bed. I love the napkin fold, it becomes more festive and I think I will try it with my pretty paper C'mas napkins, cause I don't like washing the cloth ones with just the intimate family members. Thank you for your sweet and kind visit.
    Happy C'mas season.

  16. What a sweet post and Christmas story. The story sounds very similar to one we have here called The Shiniest Star I think. I must get it out. It was my husband's when he was a little boy and we also had one at home. I have the same star garland as you do somewhere. I have never seen a blue poinsettia. Blessings, Pamela
