Baking Season

"In der Weihnachtsbรคckerei, gibt es manche Leckerei, ..." does anyone know this German Christmas song? I was in Germany, Ingolstadt (near Munich), this past weekend to see most of the family. My uncle turned 50 last week so everyone came together and we had some wonderful times there.
