Hand on heart: Do you want to get rich? Only very few people answer this question with "No" – After all, a lot of money can grant us a lot of wishes and give us a lot of freedom. But how do you actually become really rich – maybe even a millionaire?? And does it also have disadvantages, if one becomes really wealthy?

Wealth – what is it actually??

Sure, you’re rich if you have a lot of money – but can you be more specific?? From which sum is this the case? And can I feel rich myself even if I have less?

First of all, a official figure by which wealth is defined, there is no. According to the German Federal Statistical Office, you are officially considered rich if you earn more than double to triple the average income, but this also varies from state to state. A rough guide: If you have more than 4.000 euros net can already feel quite wealthy.

Winter is the fourth season in the temperate zones, it is the coldest and darkest time of the year. Depending on which hemisphere the winter is, we distinguish between the northern winter and the southern winter. The trees are now really bare, the ground is frozen and often covered with snow. In the depths of winter, the weather is just right for sledding, starting a snowball fight or building a snowman! What is typical for this season and what dates, cultural customs and festivals are associated with it? How does the animal and plant world prepare for the frosty months??

Seasons: winter

According to the calendar, the coldest season in the northern hemisphere begins on 21. or 22. December and ends on 21. or 22. March. Weather researchers assign the months December, January and February to winter. (Source: Wanderer / pixelio.de)

Winter, like the other three seasons, is also divided into three phases. Early winter begins at the beginning of December and lasts until the beginning of January. With the beginning of early winter also the onset of winter takes place at the same time. Now it can already snow and also frost is now the order of the day. The high winter lets the temperatures sink again strongly and at the beginning of the year it becomes really cold. Minus degrees are now no longer a rarity. This is followed by the so-called late winter, which prevails in mid-February. The temperatures rise gradually again and also snow falls in Germany – except the mountains – now more rarely.

The new Bundestag met for the first time on Tuesday. However, of the 736 newly elected MPs, 23 AfD politicians were not sitting in the plenary chamber, but had to watch from the stands. The reason: the trio refused to comply with the House’s 3G rules and were therefore physically separated from the rest of the parliament – including their party colleagues – and banished to the back of the chamber. AfD MPs were sorted out for hygiene reasons.

And so they sat there like defiant children who have successfully rebelled against their parents and understood their punishment as a reward, without masks but at a distance, because Wolfgang Schauble (CDU), the president of the Bundestag who was replaced today, did not want anyone who had not been vaccinated, recovered or tested in the packed plenary hall.

One of the heroic 23 wore a sticker with the inscription "not vaccinated" and "Umbrella" during the meeting. Congratulations.

Two figures merged to form the myth of St. Nicholas: on the one hand, the saint of children and on the other hand, the saint of children Bishop Nicholas of Pinora (6. Jh.) and on the other hand Bishop Nicholas of Myra (3.-4. Jh.). The latter was born around 280 in Patara (today Demre) near Antalya. When he was 19 years old, his uncle made him the Priest consecrated. After that St. Nicholas Abbot of the monastery of Sion and later Bishop of Myra.

Life, activity and legends

About the life and work of St. Nicholas is not much handed down. What is certain is that he was the one who received from his parents the Legacy to the needy passed on. Nicholas of Myra was known mainly for many other good deeds, Charity and helpfulness. He was a great Friend of children and Helpers of people in distress. That is why today he is one of the most popular saints in the Christian world. Also there are many legends in which his work is central.
