Former QCT subscription co-ordinator Doris Fritschmann greets Germans and Germanophiles alike at the door of St. Michael’s Church in Sillery. By mid-afternoon, a 40-minute line-up for entry wrapped around the block.

"Fröliche Weihnacten! Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noël!" Standing at the door of St. Michael's Church wearing her traditional Black Forest dress and apron, Doris Fritschmann could hardly greet people quickly enough at the first annual German Christmas market on December 6.
