Father: The sun kept rolling through the year, now she is feeble and small. But soon her gold will grow and spend warmth. Thus we decorate the wreath of the Sunwheel, for her new cycle. And put with bright shining light, four red candles on top.
First child: I give my light to our Mother, she cares for us children all year long.
Second child: My light shall shine for everyone who can’t celebrate Christmas today.
Third child: I shine a light for every Soldier, bravely doing his duty for Germany.
Fourth child: My brightest light is meant for the Führer, who always thinks of us and of Germany.
– Thilo Scheller
