XS650: Halloween   1 comment

Halloween isn’t traditionally a German thing. Of course, like most societies, there is a harvest festival. Erntenfest. A time for rural communities to enjoy a little time with their families.

Not far from here are the ruins of Burg Frankenstein. Odenwald. With a name like that, a perfect place to enjoy Halloweeen. Celebration in the North American sense. Adopted in the best of spirit from the US soldiers stationed here over the last few decades.

Burg Frankenstein (ca. 1240) … ruins

The night partying  is renown. Full-on. Sunday afternoons a watered-down version for kids. This year restricted to min 7 yo. We enjoy this. My son and I. Off we went.
