One of the main features of Christmas in Germany are the Pyramids. Christmas pyramids have existed for centuries but can be found at every Christmas market big and small. Even some markets in other countries have adopted the pyramid as one of the key attractions for tourists to see, especially as the blades are turning, powered by candles.
But what are they, really?
To answer that, I’ve compiled a pair of activities for you to try out. They include a Guessing Quiz and a wordfind with some words describing figures that you will most likely see in a pyramid. An answer sheet is enclosed so that you can display the colorful murals on the white board while answering the questions on a sheet of paper.
The answer sheet can be found by clicking here. Without further ado, have fun with the activities that you are about to do. 🙂
BONUS QUESTION: Which motif is most likely found on every Christmas pyramid?
a. Nativity set with the Birth of Jesus
b. Winter landscape
c. Miners and angels
d. The Church of our Lady (Frauenkirche) in Dresden?

Please keep in mind that although the words in the Wordfind and the diagram can be used only once, there is one word in the worksheet in the Pyramid diagram that can be used twice. Can you find that word?
