Karneval – Fasnet – Fastelavn

Standard

A few weeks ago (feb, 2012) the girls and I had a chance to experience schwabian culture at its finest. 
We went to a city called Rottenburg, and saw the parade. It was a great chance for us to see, and be a part of an event of the German culture.  Im thankful for every chance we get to learn new things, from different culture’s, and be able to make memories to carry with us. After all life is called a journey ;o) 
here’s some pictures I would like to share to anyone interested;

The tradition, is supposed to be, that one dressed up to look scary to scare away evil spirits, such as witches and demons, but our girls wanted to be princesses, so we let them, I’m sure there are mean princesses somewhere. But they had so much fun, celebrating this event
