  4. HesseJamez says:

    You, my freind, are a very wise person.

  6. Luise Plomi says:

    xD Ach ne. Genau das hab ich gesagt. Dass die Bezeichnung für Wintergebäck alle 300m die Straße runter – metaphorisch gesprochen – eine andere wird. Genau das ist es, was sie glaub wissen wollte, im Video… ich weiß nicht mehr so genau, ist schon eine Weile her, dass ich das geschrieben hab… ;)

    “Plätzchen” is a useful standard High-German word. Obviousely parts with “own languages” like Swabia, Bavaria or Switzerland have another word for.

    In Brandenburg wird zur Weihnachtszeit auch Plätzchen statt Kekse gesagt.

    This is one of my favorite of your videos, and I was thinking about it the other day. Is there any alternate meaning for Plätzchen other than “cookie”? I’d be curious to see if it’s an alternate term or a form of metaphorical naming/thinking.

    The German word “keks” is actually a commercial word created by German company Bahlsen in 1889. They just changed the spelling of their product “Leibnitz-Cakes” because when pronounced wrong the word “cakes” could have been associated with the German word for “poo”. The plural function of the “s” was soon forgotten so today Germans call a single cookie “Keks”. When it comes to old time traditions like christmas Germans tend to go back to older vacabulary and call their cookies “Plaetzchen”.

    My stepmom hails from southern Germany, she starts about a month and a half before christmas, or at least had to this year because of her job. next year, she’s going to put me to the task of Plaetzchhen backen. So much work, but the payoff is so delicious.
