First Sunday of Advent 2011

The First Sunday of Advent or the weekend of: The first Christmas decoration to think will it be just an intant buy of holly wreaths red or green candles violets and silver will it be a plastic Christmas tree the one forgotten in the cellar Made in China Christmas cards (who are the loyal friends who still think of sending classical paper greetings?) I opted for my traditional mix of edibles, fruits and nuts mixed with found purple stuffs in my search for the ceramic angels neatly protected in a box ready for display for cozy winter nights; The first visit to the traditional Weihnachtsmarkt The first weekend of stress preparing pasalubongs of chocolates for someone visiting the "Maderland" The first weekend of Advent of the season of love and giving.

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!
