German Chancellor Angela Merkel has made her first public appearance since fracturing her pelvis in a skiing accident.
Angela Merkel, 59, joined a group of children on Tuesday for a carol singing session. Although she was on crutches and limping slightly, Angela Merkel appeared to be in good spirits as she sang along.
The group of children were dressed in festive costumes and one young girl held up a song sheet for Angela Merkel to read from because she could not do so herself.

Angela Merkel injured herself when she fell during a cross-country skiing accident in the alpine region in Engadin, Switzerland earlier this week.
On Monday government spokesman Steffen Seibert said that Chancellor Angela Merkel would be out of action for the next three weeks.
Steffen Seibert explained that Angela Merkel initially thought that she had suffered bruising but a doctor’s examination revealed a partial fracture to the left interior pelvic ring. She was told that the injury would require “lots of lying down”.

Stoic Andie MacDowell still looked glamorous and groomed despite having to rely on two walking aides as she made her way to the Hallmark Channel TCA Winter Press Gala at the Huntington Beach Library, San Marino, California, on Friday.
According to Andie MacDowell’s spokesperson, she was snow shoeing over the holiday break and re-injured her knee.
The rep said: “Andie had surgery on her meniscus on Thursday and attended the Hallmark event Friday night.
“She’s feeling good.”

Andie MacDowell, who stars in the Hallmark Channel’s Cedar Cove, made sure she was dressed comfortably while not scrimping on the style.
She paired some loose fitting high-waisted black trousers with a grey patterned bat-wing top – showing just a hint of midriff.
Andie MacDowell also wore battered biker boots and wore her lustrous brunette hair down.
She posed for photographers without missing a beat, held up by her crutches, then posed without them as it appeared she could carry her own weight, just not walk unsupported.
Andie MacDowell’s work on the Cedar Cove series first starts with a two-hour movie that will serve as the pilot.
She stars as a small-town family court judge whose career affects the obligations of her daily life.
The movie and series are scheduled to air summer 2013.
Andie MacDowell has two daughters and a son and has been married twice.
