I’m walking with my lantern …

and my lantern is walking with me.

18 lantern d

18 lantern b

18 lantern a

These were taken on 11 November – the day when in many areas in Germany children are celebrating St Martin with a lantern procession.  It’s a predominantly catholic feast and it has been in the news during the past years because in some nursery schools they have started calling it simply “lantern festival” or “festival of lights“.

The title are the words of one of the songs that are sung while walking with the lights.
