|"The School Cone" is one way I've seen this translated, even though the word "Tuete" translates more as bag; a paper (and later plastic) bag in particular.
Now what in the world is a School Cone? OK, I'll tell you: When children in Germany set off for their first day in school, their parents and/or grandparents present them with a big cardboard cone, prettily decorated and filled with candy and cookies and chocolates and maybe oranges or any sweet a child might particularly fancy. To make this anxiously awaited first day in school just a little bit sweeter.
That picture above, that's me, by the way, on my first day of school, backpack in place, shyly clutching my goodie-filled cone. I remember it like it was yesterday: Shiny bright green my cone was, with silver trim, the darker-green crepe paper on top, tied together with a silk bow in different shades of green. My skirt and trim on the sweater was grey and the rest of the sweater was a pretty faded brick colour. Of course those were grey stockings and black patent leather shoes. Oh my!
