Year after year

Sommertagszug_Elke_Woll_1

Wrong season – but it’s a craft that is practiced every year in our region.  There is a parade in many towns on the mid-lent Sunday to welcome spring and burn an effigy of winter.  The children carry self-made “Sommertagsstecken”, sticks decorated with loops of colourful paper, a sweet “Bretzel” and a blown egg topped off with a twig of evergreen boxwood.  The sticks are made in schools by the children themselves or by the parents at meetings in the days prior to the parade.
