All yesterday evening and into the wee hours of this morning, the Jimdo team was celebrating the holidays together. That means that some of us came into the office a bit bleary eyed. The culprit: an overconsumption of mulled wine at one of the famous Hamburg Christmas markets.


At the beginning of every December, in public squares in cities all over Germany, Austria, and parts of France and Italy, festively decorated Christmas stands are set up, selling nutella crêpes and hand-knit mittens.

Here at Jimdo we have a 'zero drinking and driving' policy, meaning when we congregate at the Christmas market or have a beer after hours, we leave the car in the parking lot.


What happens to the car keys then? Well, for that we have a fancy roterpanda key holder.


The roterpanda web shop is elegant and well designed, focusing on what's essential: the handcrafted products made of felt, cork, and other natural materials.


Benjamin Kramp has sold his creations under the roterpanda label since 2009, and even though the German-only website is a bit of a hinderance for English speakers, you can always check the Google translated version.


One thing is certain: these accessories would look great in your living room!

Today we will be raffling off a roterpanda key holder like the one on the right.


Here's how to win:

    We've got German Christmas markets popping up all over England now too! Birmingham and Manchester have great ones - all the gluhwein reminds me of past Karnivalzeiten I spent with penfriends near Koln!
