MidSummer Bonfire in Bavaria 2016

I thought I'd share some photos from the Feurfest or Fire Festival that our local town had last month. Germans take their festivities quite seriously! The Mayor of Ottobrunn was spotted donning a leder Hose and Chugging on a Beer Maß.

I was intrigued to find out more. Turns out its a pagan tradition that wards off all evil. Witches are not invited to the party!

Did you know that the loops of the pretzel are believed to represent arms crossing the chest for prayer. 

In my opinion though, the shape is best suited for toddler hands to nibble on !
