Actress Maria Furtwängler (57) had a Christmas vision as a small child. “I remember actually seeing the Christ child once in my excited expectation and hope,” the Munich native told the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”. "I probably went into the Christmas room a little too early and just saw the Christ child scurrying out." She added: "It was certainly a vision, but a great and impressive one. And for me it was a very material perception that I didn't question," said Furtwängler. Today she would think about it a second time; But when she was four or five years old, she “really saw” the baby Jesus, said the actress, who has never let go of the experience since then. Furtwängler: “I still benefit from it today.”
December is a time of singing for the “Tatort” star: “For me, singing is one of the most beautiful things of all,” said Furtwängler about Advent. "I've had a tradition with a friend and a friend for several years: We first meet in a small group and practice with multiple voices - and then again with the whole circle of friends, with a friend at the piano and another friend who sings professionally. It There's nothing nicer than when our voices mesh together." She also sings “daring duets” with friends that are actually beyond her capabilities. Only then, says Furtwängler, is Advent complete for her: "Christmas without songs wouldn't be Christmas at all."
