Welcome to my blog! It's all about the things I'm passionate about in my life and work.

I live in Germany and the winter carnival, called "Fasching", is such an important part of the year that the kids even get a whole week holiday!
The actual day when people go out dressed up is "Faschingsdienstag" ("The Tuesday of Fasching").
That was just a few days ago and I took some pictures.
Unfortunately I didn't get any satisfying answer to the question about the origin of the tradition. However, most people thought that it had something to do with scaring away the evil spirits at the end of the winter.
