St. Martin’s Day
Saint Martin rode through snow and wind.
His horse, that carried him off swiftly…
Bishop Martin of Tours is commemorated on November 11, and on a Friday close to this date we celebrate St. Martin’s Day. We meet in the church at 5 pm where children will perform the story of St. Martin (in German). Afterwards we walk outside for a lantern procession – “A sea of light, for Martin’s night! Rabimmel, rabammel, rabumm”.
After the lantern procession we share, well, not a cloak but some big special pastry. At the end we enjoy some fruit tea and share a potluck.
