11.11.11 The Season Begins

Alaaaaaaaaaaaaaaf! It's November 11 at 11:00 and the season for merrymaking has officially started. It's Carnival season in this region. If you're new to the city, don't be surprised that everyone is coming to work in crazy costumes for the day. Old city would be full to the last street, and the main station would be converted to a huge dancing hall. This season of dancing, drinking and orchestrated jokes telling will last until Ash Wednesday next year culminating on the so-called Rosenmontag or Rose Monday. So either you join the fun, get crazily dressed or leave the city and be a so-called Carnival refugee and spend your holiday somewhere starting the weekend of Weiberfastnacht(Thursday)until Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Beer will flow, romance will fill the air and some loud Germans become even louder during this season. Alaaaaaaaaf!
