The second Pop Quiz on the 2013 Christmas Market Tour in Germany takes us back to Gera, Thuringia, where the Christmas Market provides some surprises to people who drive through the city and want to spend a few hours there. As mentioned in the article (which you can find here), Gera’s Christmas Markets feature a combination of murals and statues that depict the fairy tales that were written by various German and Danish children’s writers, including the Grimm Brothers and Hans-Christen Andersen. Take a look at the following 10 murals/statues below (with some hints accompanying them). Can you guess from which stories they come from? Place your answers in the Comments section of the Files as well as in the Files’ facebook pages. Answers will come before Christmas. Good luck!
