Oracles as Predictors for the New Year
Last year, our German Club melted wax (instead of traditional lead), and promptly dropped the wax into water. Using a decoder, we identified the shape of the wax to determine which direction our year would lead us.
I remember that some were bound to go traveling, while others were expecting romance to blossom, and others had various character traits selected as needing attention.
This year, our German Club will use a different determiner than melted wax. We'll use GUMMIBÄRCHEN! That's right. Each of us will, with our eyes covered, pull 5 different Gummibärchen from a bowl. Then, we'll turn to the German Gummibärchen Oracle.
Based on the combination of colors as found on the following CHART,
we'll get a sneak preview into this first year of the new decade.
Hope you can make it to German Club this week! Of course, you're welcome to try this any time. Feel free to share your results here!
